Babbitance rabbitance
Basement inhabitance
Leaves you detached
WIth a case of the blues

Leaves you immune

Re: 1190: "Time"

Happy Time-versary, OTTers!

I feel like writing a OTTification of "Happy Anniversary" by the LIttle River Band, but since the river is big, wouldn't that be the Big River Band now?
