Pocket Fulla Guts: a pop song.
Jack Daniel Christie

Hey hey baby, got a pocket full’a guts.

Hey hey yeah, from my mouth down out my butt.

Hey hey now, they jiggle when I strut.

Hey hey yeah, got a pocket full’a guts.


Within me, intrinsically,

Am I arranged so string-ally

And when I feel love’s embrace

They’re bound to become ting-ally.


A conduit from toe to tip

That coils fast above my hip,

Beginning at my anus hole

And terminating on my lip.


Hey hey baby, got a pocket full’a guts.

Hey hey yeah, from my mouth down out my butt.

Hey hey now, they jiggle when I strut.

Hey hey yeah, got a pocket full’a guts.


It must be said of my sweetbread,

Though you may not see their flesh so red,

That if they ever disappeared

I would most certainly be dead.


Hey hey baby, got a pocket full’a guts.

Hey hey yeah, from my mouth down out my butt.

Hey hey now, they jiggle when I strut.

Hey hey yeah, got a pocket full’a guts.


Hey hey baby, got a pocket full’a guts.

Hey hey yeah, from my mouth down out my butt.

Hey hey now, they jiggle when I strut.

Hey hey yeah, got a pocket full’a guts.
