"One Letter Word Land" Lyrics

This is a song about life in one-letter word land.

He said "A is the beginning" and that "Z may be the end"

And he counseled me to study the three Rs.

But "I" was the first person that I knew could make me beam

So I faked an "O!" and left to take a P.


One-letter word land conjures things that are quite funny and bizarre

And the strangest things appear inside my head.


They say H is real addictive

and you'll fall in love with E

If you take them on a D day

or while going out to C.


I lie down amidst the flowers

when I need to catch some Zs.

Too tired to flip the F word

at the buzzing of the Bs.


And there's nothing I can do about it.



This is the day I set sail for one-letter word land.


At the bottom of my visa is a place to sign my name,

or perhaps it's just a mark that means a kiss?

The map that I am holding has an X to mark the spot.

And I'll find if I mind my Ps and Qs.


One-letter word land conjures things that are quite funny and bizarre

And the strangest things appear inside my head.


There's value in a carat

(That's carat with a K)

And also in potassium,

if memory does serve.


The S-curve I am walking

is diverging in a Y.

If I could make a U turn

it would suit me to a T.


But there's nothing I can do about it.


(alternate:

(L is the right angle

(to earn yourself an A.

(But if you try to pluck a g-string

(You'll get rated with a X.

(And there's nothing you can do about it.)


Land of one-letter words. One-letter word land.

(Repeats and fades)
