[ SK ] It's a hard Knot life

for us  
It's a hard Knot life      
---no, not really---  
rather easy going      
when you're in the know      
      
Just ask Rose the Hat;      
gotta go with the flow      
to where the Steam is at      
       
True Knot      
true dat      
True Knot        
true dat      
       
Gotta go with the flow    
---find an'uther      
gifted brat      
       
An' the gobble-uns 'll git you      
ef you don't watch out!      
An' the gobble-uns 'll git you      
ef you don't watch out!
     
       
You better damn well cry      
You better damn well pout      
In fact, the more you thrash about      
and bloody murder scream—      
       
the better tasting  
your Steam
