I ordered somethin', it took a while.
This mornin' somethin', was on my doorstep.
What's this I'm holdin'? Time capsule order.
Cause I'm a brand new man, and I don't think I want it.
I don't think I want it.

A row of flags, hangin' behind me.
A garden of mic and questions and photo flashes blind me.
And I'm so high, I can't recall my statements.
I only know I made'em, because my face vibrated.

(Is it all in my mind?)
I could've sworn I saw it.
(I thought I was high.)
Just fine is what I called it.

Oh-oh, if you're feelin' small, and you can't draw a crowd,
draw dicks on the wall.
Oh-oh, if you're feelin' small, and you can't draw a crowd,
draw dicks on the wall.

I was startled when it was just feet on gravel.
Two have come apart, I must have once been raveled.
Now in pretty phrases, it don't mean nothin'.
And I wanna sell'em, I sing the line again.

So smooth you can hear the beard.
So smooth you can hear the beard.
(You can hear the beard.)
Sometimes it's poetry so smooth you can hear the beard.

Oh-oh, if you're feelin' small, and you can't draw a crowd,
draw dicks on the wall.
Oh-oh, if you're feelin' small, and you can't draw a crowd,
draw dicks on the wall.
If you can't draw a crowd, draw dicks on a wall.

And if you can't draw the crowds, settle for what you can draw.
I'm just sayin'.
I'm just sayin'
Why you sayin', that I'm just sayin'
When many wait, to hear what I'm sayin'!
Oh it's come back again, I can't ignore it.
I'm a brand new man, but I'm still payin' for it!

Oh-oh, if you're feelin' small, and you can't draw a crowd,
draw dicks on the wall.
Oh-oh, if you're feelin' small, and you can't draw a crowd,
draw dicks on the wall.
If you can't draw a crowd, draw dicks on a wall.

And if you can't draw a crowd, settle for what you can draw.

I only wanted, to be Stevie Wonder, but I got to settle for this Vanilla Thunder.
(If you can't draw a crowd)
Oh, this Vanilla Thunder
(If you can't draw a crowd)
Oh, this Vanilla Thunder
(If you can't draw a crowd)
Oh, taste my Vanilla Thunder!
(If you can't draw a crowd, if you're feelin' small)
