real warm and dry i will snuggle up in
a chenille sweater so hard! cuz i’m a warm
dry clothesy i’m a clean airy i will go the mountaintop and
sip that good clean air just suck it down
so pure at home i run it through

millions, one million, ten million dollars easy i just need a human team to
make them real for me but i’ll do the
