Thinking it’s about time for a new gaggle of friends
One for alienating and making amends
New boon allies in work and play
To be put upon by in a familiar way
When they act like that I can feign impatience-oh!
Let’s go: Down with the Tonics
Everybody needs a pick-up sometimes
I’m no special case

You might have seen I’ve got this sweater that I wear every day
It’s no great shakes, I guess it’s okay
If you didn’t know better you’d think it’s my fave
Like if there was a fire, it’s the thing I’d save
But I don’t think I’d notice if you took it away from me
Ya hey! Down with the Tonics
Everybody’s got a hobby, mine’s collecting myself
