This song is about "huffing". It's got some funny lines in it, but "huffing" isn't funny. We want to at least get the subject out on the table with kids so we can discuss the detrimental effects of getting dizzy by cutting down your brain oxygen.
STUCK ON YOU
Cho: Stuck on you, stuck on you
Stuck on you from sniffin’ glue,
Nothin’ that my heart can do, ’cause I’m
Stuck on you from sniffin’ glue!
We met at the disco-hop
I’d started to freak-out
But when the joint got busted,
You helped me to sneak-out
I lost my stash, began to crash
My knees were gettin’ weak
Then you took out your tube of glue
And y’got some on my cheek, and now I’m
Mom and Dad will be so mad
They won’t know what to do
Cause in their car I went too far
An’ I got attached to you!
Somehow our eyelids inter-laced
I can’t deny that we’ve embraced
Or Dad will say that we’re two-faced
And I’ll get pasted!! What’ll I do? I’m,
You got hooked on model planes
But that was just the start
Then plastic cars and boats and trains
Replaced me in your heart
I gave you my last Duco tube
The kind that overflows
But you wouldn’t save a ‘sniff’ for me
Y’just jammed it in your nose!
And still I’m
