Marvin's Giddy Seizures lyrics

Marvin's Giddy Seizures

MARVIN
One, two
One, two, three
One, two, three, four

Marvin is a boy who has giddy seizures
He?s laughing all the time
Marvin is a boy who has giddy seizures
Sometimes they?re fatal
When he turns upside down like a ladle pouring soup
He?s a veritable fool
Marvin in my very best friend in school
It?s me? and Marvin

Lately I?ve been thinking maybe Marvin needs attention of a private sort
Maybe this whole seizure thing something he invented or is it medicinal
Should his mother be blamed?

ALL
Marvin has a something that most everybody needs
So that we cannot ever be embarrassed

MARVIN
Marvin is my very best friend in school
And I?m embarrassed and ashamed, oh!

MARVIN?S HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEART
Marvin!

MISS GOLDBERG
Oh!

TRINA
What are you doing?

MARVIN
Pardon me boys and girls but I?m having a seizure

ALL BUT MARVIN
Oh, Marvin
Hey, Marvin

MARVIN
Yes I?m having a seizure today-hey-hey
Watch me laugh

ALL BUT MARVIN/ MARVIN
Marvin?s giddy seizures/ Watch me cry
Marvin?s giddy seizures/ I?m

MARVIN
Counting on your prayers to get me by

ALL BUT MARVIN/ MARVIN
Marvin?s giddy seizures/ Well my
Oh?/ Arms disappear
Oh?/ And my legs disappear
Oh?/ And my knees disappear
Oh?/ And my shoulders disappear

MARVIN
But Marvin throws the best fit of the year

ALL BUT MARVIN
Marvin?s giddy seizures

ALL
Marvin needs love
He needs love
He needs love
He needs love
Woah!

MARVIN
Marvin holds his breath
His face is underwater
But that?s not a seizure

ALL BUT MARVIN
Woah?

MARVIN
Marvin talks of death
He imitates a slaughter
But that?s not a seizure

ALL BUT MARVIN
Oh?

MARVIN
When he begins to shriek like a person and his eyes turn an ordinary fizz
Nothing?s exactly like I say it is
But hey! That?s a seizure!

MARVIN?S HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEART
Marvin!

MISS GOLDBERG
Oh!

TRINA
What are you doing?

MARVIN
Pardon me boys and girls but I?m having a seizure

ALL BUT MARVIN
Oh, Marvin
Hey, Marvin

MARVIN
Yes I?m having a seizure today-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey!
Watch me laugh!

ALL BUT MARVIN/ MARVIN
Marvin?s giddy seizures/ Watch
Marvin?s giddy seizures/ Me cry

MARVIN
I?m counting on your prayers to get me by

ALL BUT MARVIN
Marvin?s giddy seizures

ALL BUT MARIN/ MARVIN
Arms/ Disappear!
Legs/ Disappear!
Groin/ Disappear!
Knees/ Disappear!

MARVIN
But Marvin throws the best fit of the year

ALL BUT MARVIN
Marvin?s giddy seizures

ALL
Marvin needs love
He needs love
He needs love
He needs love
Woah!

Marvin?s giddy seizures
Marvin needs love
He needs love
He needs love
He needs love
Woah!

Marvin?s giddy seizures
Marvin needs love
He needs love
He needs love
He needs love
Woah!
