Geek facts: all the percussion apart from the kick and snare on this song were made with human beatboxing


I really should eat more bananas and get more exercise
To fend off this downward spiral
Just when I think I might be safe it likes to surprise
Breeding helix like something more viral
Close my eyes on the slippery dip
Waiting for the bottom to hit
Better brace yourself, boy
Better brace yourself
Better brace yourself, boy
It doesn’t matter if your raincoat is tailor made
Hand stitched and bone-buttoned
One day you’ll forget it
