I Can Crush You Like That

Lyrics: Maureen S. O'Brien, 6/25-8/7/95
Music: "I Can Love You Like That", All For One

It's no threat -- it's a promise.
And I can promise this --
That if you move a muscle now,
I'll shoot -- and I don't miss.
And one spritz from this sprayer
Means guaranteed slow death --
A nerve-destroying virus
That can also cause bad breath.
So put your weapons down realll slowly,
Or make the poor Valkyries gag....

CH:
I can crush you like that.
I can conquer your world.
I can do the whole thing
Without a turned curl.
I'll move stars in the sky --
Blow 'em high, if I need --
So don't think I'll hesitate
At making you bleed.
Do you see this small gnat? CLAP!
I can crush you like that. You've heard about the heroes
So valiant and bold;
But villains that they vanquished, all
Were careless or too old.
The knights had magic broadswords
Or wizards for their friends --
And _that's_ why all the stories
That you read had happy ends.
But me, I like your tragic ending --
For which I won't be waiting long...

CH2: [repeat as before, until]

I'm obeyed by my cats ---
I can crush you, like that.

BRIDGE:
Creatures from beyond
I've caught or conned.
I ate Cthulhu crispy fried. (Fresh calamari!)
Went back through history
Splodin' galaxies
To make some fireworks next July.
(It's exotic, huh.)
(Some say psychotic, but hey!)

CH2:
I'm patriotic like that!
Decorating your world --
Make the whole Milky Way
Just one big banner unfurled.
I'm an artist, you see --
Christo's nothing to me! --
And a million dead worlds ensure
That my speech is free.
'Cause I vote Democrat,
NEA funded that!
