Lyrics CHECK OUT
THIS ALLIGATOR BOOT,
POWER TIE,
PINSTRIPE SUIT.
ME OH MY,
CANT YOU TELL
THAT I WENT
THE ESTABLISHMENT ROUTE.
WHY!
CHECK OUT
THIS ENGLISH STYLE
CHECKERED VEST,
COST A PILE.
AND CHECK
THAT BARREL CHEST,
WATCH IT SWELL
WHEN YOU GO
THE ESTABLISHMENT ROUTE.
NO, NO, NOT
THE ESTABLISHMENT ROUTE!

BACK A LITTLE WHILE
I WASNT ONE OF THE BOYS
WITH THE RIBS
RUBBED OFF MY CORDUROYS.
NO MATTER WHAT MY STYLE,
NO MATTER WHAT MY WIT,
I COULDNT GET A SMILE,
I NEVER MADE A HIT.
NOW I DONT SAY SPIT
AND THEY ROLL
IN THE AISLE!
CAUSE I GOT THE OPEN EYES
AND THE MOUTH THATS MUTE,
NOW IM ONE OF THE GUYS,
NOW MY CHAMPAGNES BRUT.
CAUSE I TOOK
THE CONVENIENT,
WELL TROD,
EXPEDIENT,
WELL HEELED
ESTABLISHMENT ROUTE!
YES,
HE TOOK THE CONVENIENT,
WELL TROD,
EXPEDIENT,
WELL HEELED
ESTABLISHMENT ROUTE!


ONCE UPON A TIME
THERE WAS THIS IDEALIST
WHO LONGED TO RIGHT
THE WRONGS.
AND SANG THOSE
LETS ALL
GET OUR SHIT TOGETHER SONGS.
NOW YOU CANNOT SEE HIS INTEGRITY
FROM THE SMOKE
OF HIS ELEGANT SHEROOT,
DAD,
YOU KNOW WHAT ITS LIKE
ON THE OLD ESTABLISHMENT PIKE:
YOU CAN STRUGGLE,
YOU CAN STRIVE,
AND WITH LUCK
COME OUT ALIVE,
AND WITH PLUCK
YOU MAY SURVIVE.
BUT ITS NIP AND TUCK
THAT YOULL ARRIVE
UNBENT!
YOURE UP THE DESERT
WITHOUT A TENT,
LIVING IN A CARTON
AND CANT PAY THE RENT.
ONE DAY YOUR HONEY
WONT GIVE A HOOT
LESS YOU TAKE
THE CONVENIENT,
WELL TROD,
EXPEDIENT,
SWELL HEELED
ESTABLISHMENT ROUTE.
SO HE TOOK
THE ESTABLISHMENT ROUTE.

SO GLAD I TOOK IT,
THE FABULESTABISHMENT ROUTE.
TOO BAD HE TOOK IT,
THE DRABULESTABISHMENT ROUTE.
BE SURE YOU BOOK IT,
THE FABULESTABLISHMENT ROUTE.
