Mental Floss Submit Correct Lyrics

I'd like to be a jelly fish
'Cause jelly fish don't pay rent
They don't walk, they don't talk
With some Euro-trash accents

They're just simple protoplasm
Clear as cellophane
They ride the winds of fortune
Life without a brain

In one ear and out the other
Don't you get criss-crossed
I recommend you try a little
Mental floss

It's the small, small problems
That keep me so upset
And send me seeking shelter
Beneath my mosquito net

I stay there for hours
Protected from the nights
All those insects and vipers
And other things that bite

In one ear and out the other
Don't you get criss-crossed
I recommend you try a little
Mental floss

I'd like to be a jelly fish
Because jelly fish don't pay rent
They don't walk, they don't talk
With some Euro-trash accent

There just simple protoplasm
Clear as cellophane
They ride the winds of fortune
Life without a brain

It's in one ear and out the other
Don't you get criss-crossed
I recommend you try a little
Mental floss

It's in one ear and out the other
Don't you get criss-crossed
I recommend you try a little
Mental floss

Yeah, don't forget to floss every day
Mental
