lyrics

INVOLUNTARY ERECTION
Palermo Deschamps / Gary Nicholson

Involuntary erection
That’s what happened to me
When my parachute didn’t open
And I fell a thousand feet
When you fall too hard right on your back
And your nerves don’t know how to react
And you get an involuntary erection
There’s only one cure for me

My soldier came to attention looking at the ceiling
Standing up and watching me shave
I told the doctor to prescribe me a woman
I can’t go on this way

Involuntary erection
That’s what happened to me
I got this involuntary erection
And that nurse has a cure for me

They sent me home and I scared my wife
I said wait a minute honey you could save my life
I think you’re in the best possible position
To be my very favorite physician

And fix my involuntary erection
That’s what happened to me
When my parachute didn’t open
And I fell a thousand feet
And when you fall too hard on your back
And your nerves don’t know how to react
You get an involuntary erection
There’s only one cure for me

I got this involuntary erection
And there’s only one cure for me
