The Skivvies: Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley featuring Will Swenson


How do you do?
I see you've met my
Faithful handy - man
He's just a little brought down, because when you knocked
He thought you were the candyman

The Candy Man can
'Cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

Don't get strung out, by the way I look
Don't judge a book by its cover
I'm not much of a man by the light of day
But, by night I'm one hell of a lover
I'm just a sweet transvestite from transsexual, Transylvania

Let me show you around, maybe play you a sound
You look like you're both . .. pretty groovy
Or if you want something visual . .. that's not too abysmal
We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie

We're glad we caught you at home, Could we use your phone?
We're both in a bit of a hurry
We'll just stay where we are, then to back to our car
We don't want to be any worry

Well, you got caught with a flat, Well, how 'bout that?
Well, babies, don't you panic
By the light of the night, it'll all seem alright
I'll get you a Satanic mechanic!

I'm just a sweet transvestite from transsexual, Transylvania
Why don't you stay for the night? (Night!) or maybe, a bite? (Bite!)
I could show you my favorite obsession
I've been making a man, with blond hair and a tan
and he's good for relieving my ..t t t t t t “tension"
I'm just a sweet transvestite from transsexual, Transylvania
I'm just a sweet transvestite from transsexual, Transylvania

So - come up to the lab, and see what's on the slab
I see you shiver with antici...pation
But, maybe the rain, isn't really to blame
So, I'll remove the cause, but not the symptom!
