Ladies and gentlemen, most people record songs about love,
heartbreak, loneliness, being broke... Nobody's actually went out and
recorded a song about real pain. The band and I have just returned
from the General Hospital where we caught a man in the right position.
We name this song: "Constipation blues".

UOH, aah
Let it go! Let it go! Let it go! Let it go!
I don't believe I can take much more
Let it go

Got a pain down inside
Won't be denied
Yeah, every time I try
I can't be satisfied
Let it go!
Let it, let it go!
This pain down inside
Just won't let me be satisfied
Let it go!

Feel, ah, I-I feel alright
Yes ah, I'm beginning to feel alright
SPLASH!!! Shpsh...
I tell ya, everything's gonna be alright

Feel alright
