Slug Opera

Lyrics Connie Kaldor Music Connie Kaldor

Nobody likes us ‘cause we’re slugs
No, they’re not fond of us like they are of other bugs
Nobody likes us ‘cause we’re slugs
No, they’re not fond of us like they are of other bugs

But it’s not our fault
That we’re slimy and brown
It’s not our fault
That we’re stuck on the ground
It’s not our fault
But nobody wants to play
With the kind of bug that Mother Nature made this way

But it’s not our fault
There’s slime wherever we go
It’s not our fault
We’re embarrassed too, y’know!
It’s not our fault
But nobody seems to see
That we’re the kind of bug that’s got personality

Ah, but when the moon is clear
And the night is right
We grow little feet
And we dance all night

We got a little slug singer
She’s got a little slug song
We got a little slug band
We play all night long

Well, our skins turn blue
And we lose our slime
And some of us even sparkle
Some of the time

But at the first sight of sun
They disappear
And we’re back to being slimy and brown
Way down here

And nobody likes us ‘cause we’re slugs
No, they’re not fond of us like they are of other bugs
Nobody likes us ‘cause we’re slugs
No, they’re not fond of us like they are of other bugs
