Smug by Steve Taylor


Lyrics
Strike this little pose
Chin up in the air
Lips together tightly
Nostrils in a flare
Now look like you care
Ooh...very nice!

Practice in the mirror
Brushing back a tear
Very sincere
A promising career
Could begin right here at home
If you've got that smug...
That smug...

Hey Mama, hey Mama
Lookee what your little babies
All have become
Hey Mama, hey Mama
Don't it ever make you
Wish you'd been a nun?
Vain and fickle
Were we weaned on a pickle?
Is it in our blood?
Rome is burning
We're here turning smug

Strike another pose
Power politics
Swallow their conventions
Get your power fix
We love to mud wrestle
We love being politically Koreshed

Practice that smug
Pose it like a man
One part Mister Limbaugh
Two parts Madame Streisand
Now pretend you're in a band
My, my, we're looking smug
Very very very very

All you smug-starved millions
In the thick of the search
Welcome to our church
Whatcha want to solve?
We can help you evolve
From merely self-righteous
To perfectly smug

Strike the proud pose
Of our country club brethren
Friendly as a tomb
Fragrant as the bottom
Of a locker-room broom
Now what's the matter?
Hey, get off your knees
That part don't come 'til later...
God will not be pleased

Hey Mama, hey Mama
Lookee what your little babies
All have become
Hey Mama, hey Mama
Don't it ever make you
Wish you'd been a nun?
Vain and fickle
Were we weaned on a pickle?
Is it in our blood?
Rome is burning
We're here turning
Rome is cooking
My, we're looking smug
