Hey Stinkbug!



Stinkbug
Hiding from the rain
Dead Bug
Wash it down the drain

Some kind of pre-historic bug is in my pad
Don't know how it got here but it's driving me mad

Stinkbug
On the window ledge
Squashed Bug
Smells like Lemon Pledge

Some think that Stinkbugs have been around for a while
I never remember seeing them as a child!

You can walk on me
You can walk on me
You can walk on me
You'll be sorry if you walk on me

Stinkbug
Clinging to my beer
Screened in
How'd you get in here?

Some say that Stinkbugs pre-date ancient history
Stinkbug removal's now a cottage industry

You can crawl on me
You can crawl on me
You can crawl on me
I will crush you if you crawl on me

Hey Stinkbug
Hey Stinkbug
Hey Stinkbug.................

  4. Save the draft (never thought I'd be saying that).

    It could put your great grandkids through law school. Some day it will sell for big bucks at auction.

    Smart to make lots of corrections. Collectors love that kind of stuff.
