I Was Trying to Swim Across the River with You

He come to me with pickles in his pickle, he pickled me, I didn't pickle him! I wasn't pickling someone's pickle, I was running from pickles. When I got pickled, I was in pickles. I was already pickled. I pickled that. I had the pickles. I went to the pickles. I had all the pickles, and I looked pickled and said, "This is a bigger pickle than I just got out of!" I don't want to take my pickles to work! I got a pickle in a pickle bag! And ten, fifteen pickles, what the hell I wanna go pickle a pickle for? Pickle for what? Pickles? I got all the pickles in the world! I'm the pickle king, man! I run the pickleworld, guy! I decide who pickles what and where they pickle it at! What? Am I gonna pickle around like I'm some pickle somewhere, for someone else's pickle? I make the pickles, man. I roll the pickles. The pickle is mine. I deal the pickles.
