Give yourself a gold star
Put it on your guitar, put it on your car
You know you deserve it
'Cause you have come so far
That teacher that flunked ya
Well fuck her
'Cause her gold stars, her sticker stars
Could never shine half as bright as yours

That smell of fresh cut lawn
That you puked on at the dawn
It's a gift for you Mr. Robinson
'Cause there's a whole lot more that's going on
Than your groomed and tidy lawn
And here's to you Mrs. Robinson
And one for you too Miss July

Just when you think you're getting really old
You get a little bit older still
I guess you'll always be that child inside
Still got your chin on the window sill
Somehow you've kept your lamp still alight
Through all these dark and stormy nights
Let's give ourselves one more gold star
For making it half way through another year

Half way through another year

He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
