Highly Tasteful Mellotron Choir by Mark Frey

Well I’m looking for my c-clamps
I’ve got c-clamps on my mind
Yeah I’m looking for my c-clamps
Why are they so hard to find?

There are people in this world
Who have never heard of c-clamps
They don’t know what I mean
Or why I sing this song
Other people in this world
Are quite familiar with c-clamps
And they know what I mean
Still don’t know why I sing this song

I looked all over the basement
And I opened every drawer
And I really can’t remember
What I last used them for
There are people in this world
Who cannot afford a c-clamp
It would be a priceless treasure
They could never set aside
Other people in this world
Are quite casual about c-clamps
And will even put them places
They’re impossible to find

But one of the drawers I opened
Didn’t open all the way
Something’s sticking up in back there
Behind the riches on display

Now I want to tell the world
That I finally found my c-clamps
If you know what I mean
That’s why I sing this song
In the back of a drawer
That was stuffed too full to open
If you don’t know what I mean
It’s still why I sing this song
