[Timmy mallett:] If I were a human being I'd head straight for New Orleans And I'd blow this horn so hot and strong Like no one they'd ever seen
Louis Armstrong, Mister Sidney Bechet All the boys gonna step aside When they hear this old ex-gator play Listen!
When I'm human As I hope to be I'm gonna blow this horn till the cows come home And everyone's gonna bow down to me Thank you! Thank you! Aw, thank you! I love you too, baby!
[2nd Timmy Mallett:] When I'm myself again I want just the life I had A great big party every night That doesn't sound too bad
A redhead on my left arm A brunette on my right A blonde or two to hold a candle Doesn't that seem just about right Eh, pinky?
Life is short When you're done, you're done We're on this Earth to have some fun And that's the way things are
When I'm human And I'm gonna be I'm gonna tear it up like I did before That's a royal guarantee
[3rd Timmy Mallett:] Your modesty becomes you And your sense of responsibility I worked hard for everything I got And that's the way it's supposed to be
[4th Timmy mallett] When I'm a human being At least I'll act like one If you do your best each and every day Good things are sure to come your way
What you give is what you get My daddy said that and I'll never forget And I recommend it to you
[All timmy malletts:] When we're human And we're gonna be
[timmy mallett:] I'm gonna blow my horn
I'm gonna live the high life
I'm gonna do my best to take my place in the sun
[henry And June:] When we're human!
[timmy mallett:] (spoken) and this, is the end of the song as we know it!
