How Me Wear Me Socks

Some people think I’m crazy, that I’ve surely lost me mind
When they looks upon me mis-matched feet they often ask me why
I answer in the honest, I’d never tell a lie
It’s how me wear me socks and I be feeling mighty fine!

It’s how me wear me socks b’y it’s how me wear me socks
It may seem quite peculiar to the ordinary flock
But I be not tryin’ to fool ya b’y, it’s how me wear me socks

Some say it’s in the dryer where the socks all go to die
Some believe it’s in the wash machine where many are left behind
No matter way you looks it, there be socks there all alone
Those socks they be survivors and I gave’em all a home

They may be different sizes and the patterns may be wrong
But diversity in any situation makes for strong
My lefts and rights are yin and yang and every kind of shui
Harmony of lights and darks as do the nights and days

It’s how me wear me socks b’y it’s how me wear me socks
It may seem quite peculiar to the ordinary flock
But I be not tryin’ to fool ya b’y, it’s how me wear me socks

And socks they be alive, full of personality
The shorties love the sunny shine, the woolies love the sea
The fuzzy ones are happiest when gazing at the stars,
The red ones if you piss’em off, will kick you in the arse

So if you still thinks I be crazy there be one thing I can say
Mix and match a pair of socks and brighten up your day
Save a few from lonely isolation in the pile
Wear them like the socks they are and wear’em all with style!

It’s how me wear me socks b’y it’s how me wear me socks
It may seem quite peculiar to the ordinary flock
But I be not tryin’ to fool ya b’y, truth be all I got
Simply how me wear me socks, b’y it’s how me wear me socks
It’s how me wear me socks b’y it’s how me wear me socks
It’s how me wear me socks b’y it’s how me wear me socks…………
