they say your father surely was
ruined by green lemons and cartoons

and his mother she swam
out of her old neighborhood again

her high-school teacher was featured
in a wild life documentary
on tv
i have seen it
with my own three eyes

his tax advisor he had heard
about a man who likes wearing blue skirts

rickety rackety
rickety rackety
rickety oh wicked

they say your uncle used to live
in a cabin on a mountain top near a cliff

one of his aunties she had gone
long before the war and everything else was won

her favorite cousin had a crush on a nun
who helped teaching geography
and was fond of seeing
the whole wide world
beyond her pond
or a book

well it took her quite a while
to get around the globe
she was traveling with a couple
they directed daily soaps

my boyfriend's girlfriend always longs
for election posters and late-night copy shops

she´s from that patchwork family
of marathon runners and strangers raising bees

some older sister was assisting
the vice president of a bank
they had made & lost a great fortune
on a black friday
but it´s hard to say
how that story would end
in the end

they signed a lot of papers
with a pen from the last century
that was when they succeeded in
flying to the moon and back
with a hacky sack kind of

kind of machinery
kind of machinery

rickety rackety
rickety rackety
rickety racket
t rex

hacky sack moon and back
hacky sack where it´s at
rickety racket

oh wicked prehistoric t rex
i can sense that you were a vegetarian
now i know that we all misunderstood you
rickety rackety
