lyrics

Like a balloon with too much air
An apple pie, lots of steam in there
A subway train with no room to spare

Jack in the box, snakes in a can
Fruit in a peel, shell-wrapped pecan
Bird in a cage, well, what’s the plan?

Do like the seeds from a flower
And clouds about to shower
The geyser at the geysering hour
Oh

Let it out
Let it out
It’s so much better if you get it out now
Let it out
Let it out
Save it for later and there’ll be a kapow
Let it out

You’ve got some loose and dangly teeth
Some CO2 every time you breath
About to cough, hiccup or sneeze

Some sweaty socks with your feet in
Whatever else you’re secretin’
And a while after drinking or eatin’
Oh

Let it out
Let it out
It’s so much better if you get it out now
Let it out
Let it out
Save it for later and there’ll be a kapow
Let it out

And when you’ve got something you feel
And you’re not sure just what is real
And you don’t know how you can deal

Just let it fly like a rocket
Reaching escape velocity
Then finally nothing will stop it
Yeah

Let it out
Let it out
It’s so much better if you get it out now
Let it out
Let it out
Keep it inside and one day you’ll have a cow

Let it out
Let it out
It’s so much better if you get it out now
Let it out
Let it out
Save it for later and there’ll be a kapow
Let it out
Let it out
