I was driving on the freeway in the fast lane With a rabid wolverine in my underwear When suddenly a guy behind me in the back seat Popped right up and cupped his hands across my eyes I guessed, "Is it Uncle Frank or Cousin Louie?" "Is it Bob or Joe or Walter?" "Could it be Bill or Jim or Ed or Bernie or Al?" I probably would have kept on guessing But about that time we crashed into the truck And as I'm laying bleeding there on the asphalt Finally I recognize the face of my hibachi dealer Who takes off his prosthetic lips and tells me Everything you know is wrong Black is white, up is down and short is long And everything you thought was just so Important doesn't matter Everything you know is wrong Just forget the words and sing along All you need to understand is Everything you know is wrong I was walkin' to the kitchen for some Golden Grahams When I accidentally stepped into an alternate dimension And soon I was abducted by some aliens from space Who kinda looked like Jamie Farr They sucked out my internal organs And they took some polaroids And said I was a darn good sport And as a way of saying thank you They offered to transport me back to Any point in history that I would care to go And so I had them send me back to last Thursday night So I could pay my phone bill on time Just then the floating disembodied head of Colonel Sanders started yelling Everything you know is wrong Black is white, up is down and short is long And everything you thought was just so Important doesn't matter Everything you know is wrong Just forget the words and sing along All you need to understand is Everything you know is wrong I was just about to mail a letter to my evil twin When I got a nasty papercut And, well, to make a long story short It got infected and I died So now I'm up in heaven with St. Peter By the pearly gates And it's obvious he doesn't like The Nehru jacket that I'm wearing He tells me that they've got a dress code Well, he lets me into heaven anyway But I get the room next to the noisy ice machine For all eternity And every day he runs by screaming Everything you know is wrong Black is white, up is down and short is long And everything you used to think was so important Doesn't really matter anymore Because the simple fact remains that Everything you know is wrong Just forget the words and sing along All you need to understand is Everything you know is wrong Everything you know is wrong

Charles Nelson Reilly was a mighty man The kind of man you'd never disrespect He stood eight feet tall, wore glasses, and had a third nipple on the back of his neck He ate his own weight in coal, excreted diamonds everyday He could throw you down a flight of stairs, but you still would love him anyway Yeah, you know you'd love him anyway Charles Nelson Reilly won the Tour de France with two flat tires and a missing chain He trained a rattlesnake to do his laundry, I'm telling you the man was insane He could rip out your beating heart, and show it to you before you died Everyday he' make the host of Match Game give him a piggyback ride Yeah, two hour piggyback ride, giddy up Gene Ninja warrior, master of disguise He could melt your brain with his laser-beam eyes, Oh yeah Oh yeah He had his own line at the DMV He made sweet, sweet love to a manatee Oh yeah Oh yeah, that was something to see, I tell ya Charles Nelson Reilly figured out cold fusion, but he never ever told a soul I've seen the man unhinge his jaw, and swallow a Volkswagen whole He'd bash your face in with a shovel if you didn't treat him like a star You could spit at the wind, or tug at Superman's cape But Lord knows you don't mess around with CNR No, no, no Talkin' about CNR

Jillian was her name She was sweeter than aspartame Her kisses reconfigured my DNA And after that I never was the same And I loved her even more Than Marlon Brando loved souffle She was gorgeous, she was charming Yeah, she was perfect in every way Except she was always using the word "infer" When she obviously meant "imply" And I know some guys would put up with that kind of thing But frankly, I can't imagine why And I told her, I said "Hey!

Oh my baby, my baby, she don't want me no more, Ever since she heard "Eat It" back in '84. She says the domain Weird Al dot com is quite amazing, And the way he handles his sticks really gets her heart a-racing. She likes his deep brown eyes, and his dark brown hair. Yeah, he's her favorite drummer / webmaster extraordinaire. Well, my baby's in love with Jon "Bermuda". She's all crazy 'bout that Jon "Bermuda". I asked why, she said "'Cause he's a righteous dude, duh!" 'Cause my baby's in love with Jon "Bermuda". Now every time I see him he's out shakin' hands. With a smile and a smirk, he's meet-and-greetin' the fans. What a pain in the butt to take on dual roles. Watch him keeping the tempo, and destroying the trolls. But my girl can't get enough, and it hurts my pride. 'Cause now the symbols of her love have "Zildjan" written on the side. Well, my baby's in love with Jon "Bermuda". She's got a thing for that Jon "Bermuda". I might as well pack up and hop a plane to Judah. Now my baby's in love with a- -I said, I said, I said, My baby's in love with Jon "Bermuda". Head over heels for that Jon "Bermuda". I'm a small cheese curd, and he's a hunk of Gouda. 'Cause my baby's in love with Jon "Bermuda". I knew we were headed for disaster When she played that Woodsy Owl song over her shoutcaster. Her infatuation really ain't a mystery For the web-spacing, solo-playing, fan-waving, syncopating Drummer for the single greatest cover band in history! Well I don't know how to make a tambourine jangle, And I'm not tattooed on David Rossi's ankle. And I know she thinks compared to him, I'm so lame. But I know two can play at this kind of game. Yeah, well, let's just see how jealous she'll get when… …I said, when I start stalking the keyboardist Ruben! Well, my baby's in love with Jon "Bermuda". She's all crazy 'bout that Jon "Bermuda". If I was Jar Jar Binks, I'd say "Howsa rude-a!" 'Cause my baby's in love with a- -I said, I said, I said, My baby's in love with Jon "Bermuda". Why'd she have to fall for that Jon "Bermuda".

Oh, I couldn't live a single day without you Actually, on second thought, well, I suppose I could Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, honey, you're the greatest Well, at any rate, I guess you're...pretty good Now, it seems to me I'm relatively lucky I know I probably couldn't ask for too much more I honestly can say you're an above-average lady You're almost just what I've been looking for You're sort of everything I ever wanted You're not perfect, but I love you anyhow You're the woman that I've always dreamed of Well, not really...but you're good enough for now You're pretty close to what I've always hoped for That's why my love for you is fairly strong And I swear I'm never gonna leave you, darlin' At least 'til something better comes along 'Cause you're sort of everything I ever wanted You're not perfect, but I love you anyhow You're the woman that I've always dreamed of Well, not really...but you're good enough for now No, not really...but you're good enough for now

Melanie What can the problem be Sweet Melanie Why won't you go out with me She lived across the street on the fifteenth floor of the Gilmore building I saw her in the shower reaching for some soap I knew she had to be the girl for me And to think I probably never would have found her If I hadn't bought that telescope Oh, Melanie What can the problem be Sweet Melanie Why won't you go out with me I just can't understand it Why won't you return my phone calls Are you still mad I gave a Mohawk to your cat If you'd just say the word I'm certain that our love would last forever and ever Or are you too dumb to realize that Melanie What can the problem be Sweet Melanie Why won't you go out with me How can you ignore me when you know that I can't live without you I have to go through your garbage just to learn more about you Melanie, ooh Oh sweet Melanie Why won't you go out with me You weren't impressed when I tattooed your name across my forehead You wouldn't listen when I promised to be true I couldn't stand it so I jumped out from the sixteenth story window Right above you Now I may be dead but I still love you Melanie What can the problem be Sweet Melanie Why won't you go out with me Melanie What can the problem be Sweet Melanie Why won't you go out with me I'm singin' Melanie What can the problem be Sweet, sweet Melanie Why won't you go out with me I'm singin' Melanie What can the problem be Sweet Melanie Why won't you go out with me I'm singin' Melanie What can the problem be Sweet Melanie Why won't you go out with me

Ever wonder what it’s like in Al’s band? Kind of complicated but we’ll tell you what we can Lots of people ask us what goes on in Al’s band This is our song and we’ll start where we began Back in the beginning before we started Al sent songs to Doctor Demento Then met Jon who played the drums and then He said “we should start a band“ That was the moment the fun began They met Steve and he became the bass man He knew Jim who played guitar and then Al had his band Early on we did a show with Missing Persons Playing our best but got boo’d by their fans We cut our first album in three days After that we knew what to do We hit the road on tour and then we were on our way Happy to be playing our music for you Then before we knew it, we’d started something We got to make our second album That’s when Eat It was a hit and went gold And it changed everything We had a tour bus at our command We dared to be stupid on plastic bovines With ice cream pressed against our foreheads Johnny Carson asked if we would play polkas on his tv show We got some help from the Tonite Show band Polka Party came and went Featuring Christmas At Ground Zero And it didn’t chart for too long But it had some great songs Then we joined a tour with the Monkees Going on the road with Mickey Dave and Pete was neat Even worse the album where we did the fat song We were too thin to be in the video UHF was next we played the film score After that we found our keyboard man “I am Ruben how do you do?” We took him in and put him in a cone bra Now he plays piano and he also plays it cool Then we went, and jumped off of the deep end And reached nirvana And then came Alapalooza Wearing our horns and silver paint just like the Chili Peppers do Or did, when we made the Bedrock video Canada was next in line for Al’s band That was where we learned how to say Saskatchewan We were getting popular outside our native land That opened the door to a world full of fans So we went to OZ and to New Zealand When we did bad hair day, the Amish video We were outstanding in our field Then we all went, running with the scissors The saga began and it was more than All about, pentiums We were featured on The Simpsons as animated characters An honor for all of us Never get, tired of playing in Al’s band So much fun to play all the styles that we do How about a solo from the drummer of the band Take it now Bermuda don’t make it too bland “I’ll add percussion to lend a hand” Poodle Hat was different, with Couch Potato Our first single without a video But the coup de grace was Genius In France It was tres magnifique Al and the band were so very proud People ask us what it’s like in Al’s band What it’s like to be in Mr. Yankovich’s band Then we tell them that it’s Mr. Yankovic’s band Not a ch the c sounds just like a k Straight Outta Lynwood we hit top ten White And Nerdy went platinum too We really hope that someday we might do it again If we do we know that it’s all thanks to you All thank you’s to you And you’re welcome too Come and see us play when you can Then you can see for yourself what is Making all of this happen You’re the reason why we play Haven’t told you everything we do We’ll have to save it for part two There’s so much to talk about with Al’s band Pardon us for rambling it went longer than we planned That’s a little bit of what it’s like in Al’s band This is our song come and see us when you can One big happy family right here in Al’s band Now that we’ve told you we hope you understand Why we love to play in Mister Yankovic’s band This is our song come and see us if you can
