I made you laugh
And something exploded,
Flew out the window
And did doughnuts in the parking lot
Before coming back in and doing it again.
You ask me how I am,
And I say “great,” and I mean it,
Not in the standard-American-answer way,
But I mean:
Your question follows me around,
Follows me home and
Dances a waltz around my head
To the best kind of music.
