Lyrics:

Jumpin' Over Jumper Creek
By GCG
In the style of Flood/Apollo 18-era They Might Be Giants

(Verse One)
Standing around for hours and hours
Trying to find out my life's purpose
The water oaks goin' into space
Mitochondria that the buzzards chase
Can anyone tell me where the meaning is?

(Verse Two)
Questioning if anybody has free will
Walking cross the bridges, standing on the hills
Staring at the thickest tree in sight
Underneath the brightest of spotlights
In the same place where somebody's boss was killed

(Chorus)
What am I saying?
I can't remember!
Jumpin' Over Jumper Creek
From August to November
(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse Three)
The seeds on the ground are balls of spikes
With fake spikes on top of their real spikes
They litter the ground, every square inch
Controlling the minds of every finch
So they can build up the biggest Reich

(Verse four)
Nematodes are swimming in the waters
Swinging on swings, teetering teeter-totters
Evicting rocks out of their homes
Committing arson to the stones
And making their houses of trash and fodder

(Chorus)
What am I saying?
I can't remember!
Jumpin' Over Jumper Creek
From August to November
(Repeat Chorus)

(Solo with accordions/horns/guitars)

(Bridge)
The creek dries up (pu seird keerc ehT)
The little pup (pup elttil ehT)
With fish in hand (dnah ni hsif htiW)
Walks 'cross the land (dnal eht ssorc' sklaW)
(Repeat bridge)

(Verse five)
The moon is rising, sun is setting down
It's making all the children wear a frown
As they walk back home after so long
The leaves on the ground sing a sad song
And decorate their faces like a clown

What am I saying?
I can't remember!
Jumpin' Over Jumper Creek
From August to November
(Repeat Chorus)

(Chorus)
What am I saying?
I can't remember!
Jumpin' Over Jumper Creek
From August to November
(Repeat Chorus)
