      Lyrics for Jimmy Buffett - "Mental Floss"

      Lyrics by Jimmy Buffett
      Music by Buffett, Kunkel, Guth, P.Mayer & J. Mayer
      I'd like to be a jellyfish
      'Cause jellyfish don't pay rent
      They don't walk and they don't talk
      With some Euro-trash accent
      They're just simple protoplasm
      Clear as cellophane
      They ride the winds of fortune
      Life without a brain

      (Chorus)
      In one ear and out the other
      Don't you get criss-crossed
      I recommend you try a little
      Mental floss

      It's the small, small problems
      That keep me so upset
      And send me seeking shelter
      Beneath my mosquito net

      I stay there for hours
      Protected from the night
      All those insects and vipers
      And other things that bite

      (Chorus)

      I'd like to be a jellyfish
      'Cause jellyfish don't pay rent
      They don't walk and they don't talk
      With some Euro-trash accent
      They're just simple protoplasm
      Clear as cellophane
      They ride the winds of fortune
      Life without a brain

      (Chorus)
      In one ear and out the other
      Don't you get criss-crossed
      I recommend you try a little
      Mental floss
