Lyrics to “Missing You: The Incandescent Light Bulb Song”

Seems like yesterday

we used to rock the show

I flip the switch

you rock the glow

So far from being

only luminescent



but looks ain’t always

what they seem to be

Congress taking

you away from me

this new bulb

costs 10 times more

need a haz-mat crew

when it hits the floor

and the future can’t

wait to see

what they look like

in my vanity


Night they took

my friend

Try to block it out

but it plays again

they say the change is

what we need to make

got salmonella from

my Easy Bake

give anything to hear

half your breath…

I know you’re still living

you life after death

Every time I see

Every time I read

Every time I breathe

exposed Mercury

I’ll be missing you…

It’s kinda hard

with you not around

new bulb warms up

in like a half an hour

watching us as

we pray for you

every day we

pray for you

until the day

we meet again

in the dark

is where I’m reading fried

give anything to hear

half your breath…

I know you’re still living

your life after death

Somebody tell me why…

If that new light

bulb is so amazing

Then why don’t people just go buy that light bulb?
