The Strain

This song is by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and appears on the album Let's Make Up and Be Friendly (1972).

Hey, hey, human gonna do The Strain
I'm gonna grip the seat I'm gonna pull your chain
Barbed-wire bum baby, be like me
We're gonna do the strain on the lavatory

We're gonna e-eeeeeeeeease it out
We're gonna squee-eeeeeeeeeeze it out
So get a grip on your seat. We're gonna get relief somehow.



Every time I settle down and try to read a book,
The telephone starts ringing so I leave it off the hook.
The Jehovah's Witness come knocking at my door
I try to tell them nicely but they still come back for more.
Straining, complaining--No! I'm not complaining,
I just got a lot of shit in me - gotta get it out!
