Lyrics

Yakko:
The sense of sight is what guides us right
When we go out on walks.
Wakko:
The sense of smell is the way to tell
That you need to change your socks.
Dot:
The sense of touch is what hurts so much
When you bang your toe on the bed.
Yakko:
The sense of hearing is something good,
'Cause if a tree fell in the wood,
Would there be a sound? You bet there would...
If it landed on top your head!
The Warners:
Your head!
If a tree lands on top of your head!
Wakko:
The sense of taste affects your waste...
Yakko:
Which makes five senses in all.
Dot:
There's a sixth sense, too, but it's hard to explain.
It's a psychic connection inside of your brain
So you can understand people like Shirley MacLaine...
Yakko:
Who wear crystals they bought in the mall!
The Warners:
The mall!
Who wear crystals they bought in the mall!
Yakko:
And now, the other senses!
Dot:
There are scents you can smell like cologne from Chanel
Or the scents of expensive perfume.
Yakko:
There are scents of flowers we hope overpowers
The kitty box next to your room. Pyew!
Wakko:
There's a sense of pride you have deep down inside...
Yakko:
When you practice a sense of fair play.
Dot:
There are dollars and cents that you pay at a toll...
Yakko:
Or the census man who is taking a poll...
Wakko:
And a sense of confusion we're out of control...
The Warners:
And they really should take us away!
Away!
They really should take us away!
Dot:
There's a sense of humor, a sense of doom, or
A sense of awe, sense of timing...
Yakko:
The sense of a word, a sense of absurd
Like trying to do all this rhyming!
Dot:
There's incense...
Wakko:
And horse sense...
Yakko:
And common sense, it's true.
Dot:
Sense of wonder, sense of beauty...
Wakko:
Sense of honor, sense of duty...
Yakko:
A sense of doubt, a sense of danger...
Dot:
A sense of fear when you meet a stranger...
Wakko:
A sense of style, a sense of worth...
Yakko:
A sense of direction for knowing the earth...
The Warners:
A sense of dread as we're singing this song
That it's starting to turn out completely all wrong
And it's time that we end it because it's too loooooooooooonnnnnnggggg.....
(Deep breath)
'Cause it just doesn't make any sense!
Nonsense!
This song doesn't make any sense!
