Lyrics

I press the buttons now
Voice keeps poppin' on the call box out
Mop-man, do you receive?
Ten-four, I gotta pull out
I got an eta, five-thirty on the dot
A little bit later, it’ll thicken the plot
They always tell me what’s not is not
I just gotta get that 1−2-3
It’s funny how these things always happen to me
I just gotta get that 1−2-3
Now, by the force of circumstance
And by the belt that holds up my pants
I’m held responsible
For this idea that never had a chance
When they call out the guard tonight
He’ll cut the alarm and switch off the light
I get a funny feeling that wrong is right
I just gotta get that 1−2-3
It’s funny how these things always happen to me
I just gotta get that 1−2-3
A b c Like you and me
A b c It’s a combination…
I press the buttons nowwww!
I press the buttons now
Voice keeps poppin' on the call box out
Mop-man, do you receive?
Ten-four, I gotta pull out
I got an eta, five-thirty on the dot
A little bit later, it’ll thicken the plot
They always tell me what’s not is not
I just gotta get that 1−2-3
It’s funny how these things always happen to me
I guess I gotta get that 1−2-3
A b c Like you and me Not is not, not is not!
Not is not, not is not…
