I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you Not worth trying You still lay dying Can't help but crying I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you Not worth trying I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you You still lay dying I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you Can't help but crying I could fold one thousand cranes but it won't bring health to you Not worth trying

You’re 66 years old You’ve got the scars to prove And if it wasn’t fact I would guess you were 22 I’ve known you for a while You’ve always got a smile You always give me a handshake or hug me when we meet You’re the coolest guy I’ve ever met Everyone likes you You’re old but so much fun to have around I hope you never leave town Throughout my teens you wrote so many cards and notes Checking that everything’s fine and I can call you anytime You’re in your 90th year So many hold you so dear You’re a picture of grace I just wanted a chance to say You’re the coolest guy I’ve ever met Everyone likes you You’re old but so much fun to have around I hope you never leave town You’re the coolest guy I’ve ever met Everyone likes you You’re old but so much fun to have around I hope you never leave town I hope you never leave town I hope you never leave town I hope you never leave town

When I was eight they had the opening scenes to the show Have him dive through a gate and do a roll before his name would explode He had the mullet from Nam but then got shot in the arm He set that Murdock on fire to try to do him some harm Well oh yeah He was mean He deserved everything Richard Dean Anderson played his final show When Richard Dean Anderson made that bomb explode Pete was a Burger King how was he to know? When Richard Dean Anderson made that bomb explode When I was nine I heard the news that they tried not to expose A bomb did explode and blew his mullet all the way down the road He mixed the blue with the red and cut the black wire instead The only mistake he made was too much stuff in his head Well oh yeah Now it’s known the Stargate guy is a clone Richard Dean Anderson played his final show When Richard Dean Anderson made that bomb explode Pete was a Burger King how was he to know? When Richard Dean Anderson made that bomb explode But the pocketknife lives on But the pocketknife lives on But the pocketknife lives on But the pocketknife lives on

My love for you would eclipse even the most obese Meet me at the drive-thru or I can dine-in with you You'll see what you mean to me Now that you're here if you left I would be the loneliest guy in the world Now you're here if you left I would be the loneliest guy in the world The day you bring some guy home, he better be pristine If I caught you kissing that guy would got missing and I would do seven years Now that you're here if you left I would be the loneliest guy in the world Now you're here if you left I would be the loneliest guy in the world Now that you're here if you left I would be the loneliest guy in the world Now you're here if you left I would be the loneliest guy in the world

Korean Air 02:12
I’ll never forget the worst day of my life I was flying Korean Air The air-con was turned off for 12 hours of hell The kimchi was all I could smell I’ll never fly Korean Air again they’re a bunch of crazy 한국어 I never want as friends I’ll never fly Korean Air again t’s like being in a coma in a coffin bound for Hell I’ll never fly Korean Air again I called for the hostess at 30 degrees and told her I needed air I started to suffocate Now I know why She wanted the white man to die I’ll never fly Korean Air again, they’re a bunch of crazy 한국어 I never want as friends I’ll never fly Korean Air again, it’s like being in a coma in a coffin bound for Hell I’ll never fly Korean Air Don’t ever fly Korean Air I’ll never fly Korean Air again

An angry, white, middle-class suburban punk in strife I had a job my hands were tied 2002 I learnt the art that they don’t teach in school Looking back I nearly died I remember the stress appalling I remember the trip and falling I remember the day that I hit the ground I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down I never thought I needed help or that life wasn’t fine It never even crossed my mind It snuck up on me, adding up until eventually I thought escape was suicide I remember the stress appalling I remember the trip and falling I remember the day that I hit the ground I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down When will we learn? When will we see? We need each other and honesty Until we learn statistics show We practise the art that we shouldn't know I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down I learnt the art of breaking down
