ainsley lying on floor at office 2-19-2016 12-23-43 PM

 

When you’re alone and life is making you lonely

 You can always go downtown

When you’ve got worries all the noise and the vermin

 Seems to help I know,downtown

ainsley with mama downtown 2-20-2016 12-38-44 PM

Just Listen to the music of the rodents in the city

Linger on the sidewalk where the pigeon poop smells so pretty

How can you Lose?

The Rats are Much bigger there

You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares

ainsley with head in mattress 2-20-2016 12-46-12 PM

So go downtown

Things will be great when you’re downtown

No Finer place for sure, Downtown

The Vermin is waiting for you

ainsley with mama 2-20-2016 12-59-50 PM

Don’t hang around and let the huskies surround you

There are rodents to kill, downtown

Maybe you know some little places to go to

where they don’t hide so well, downtown

ainsley in alley 2-20-2016 12-46-08 PM

Just listen to the rhythm of a bunny running for cover

You’ll be killin’ them all before the night is finally over

Happy Again

The Rats are much bigger there

You can forget all your troubles, forget all you cares

ainsley in wind with mama 2-20-2016 1-06-00 PM

So go downtown

Where all the rats are big, downtown

Waiting for you tonight, downtown

You’re gonna eat well now, downtown

Downtown

Downtown

ainsley closer with mama 2-20-2016 12-54-20 PM

And you may find some Scottie to help and understand you

A Scottie as bloodthirsty as you and needs a gentle paw to

Guide them along

So Maybe I’ll see you there

We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares

ainsley with mama 2-20-2016 1-08-14 PM

So go downtown

Vermin killing will be great when you’re downtown

No Better Rodent Infested place for sure, Downtown

The Vermin is waiting for you
