Snail Shell - They Might Be Giants

"Sir Hand
Or is it ma'am?
I fell out of my right place again

And you
considered me
And now I'm where a snail has to be

I want to thank you for puttin' me back in my snail shell (x2)

Was it something you would do for anybody?
Was it what you'd only do for me?
I need to know, because you see
I wanna thank you
For putting me back in my snail shell

Friend
Look what you gave
And how can you ever be repaid?
How may I give a hand
From the position at your feet where I stand?

So let me thank you
For putting me back in my snail shell
I'd like to thank you
For putting me back in my snail shell

Was it something you would do for anybody?
Was it what you'd only do for me?
I need to know, because you see
I wanna thank you
For putting me back in my snail shell

Was it something you would do for anybody?
Was it what you'd only do for me?
Or was it something where you acted when you saw the need
And know that there would be a way the act could be repaid?
And so it may, but for today
I wanna thank you
For putting me back in my snail shell"
