+++ if the one side is up and not the other,

I just pick’em all up, because I figure that
+++++ you’re immune to their tune,
+++++ if you don’t know what it’s supposed to do,
+++++ yeah, you’re immune, & pretty soon,
+++++ we just might surprise them with a thing or two..

somebody told me, Francis Scott Key took an old drinking song
+++ and now we all have something to salute to,
but I can’t remember which hand to put over which heart,

+++++ when you’re immune to their tune,
+++++ it’s like you don’t know what it’s supposed to do,
+++++ if you’re immune, then pretty soon,
+++++ we’re gonna show them, show them a thing or two…
+++++ the pied piper plays a fancy flute,

+++ I think we both know what it’s supposed to do,
+++ if you’re immune, then pretty soon,
+++ just might surprise them with a thing or two…
+++ yeah, you’re immune to their tune,
+++ if you don’t know what it’s supposed to do,
+++ you’re immune, and pretty soon,
