I hate braggin', marketing just never seemed intuitive

So I've stayed back and in the past have had nothing to do with it

but people need a map to see what they should give a damn about

To save a forest you may have to print a couple pamphlets out…

Oh this attitude is new to me, but things ain't how they used to be

As soon as we'd begin to sing you'd plug your ears cartoonishly

I'd check the peckin' order well before I crossed the road

but either way I'd go I'd always end up feelin' like a joke


I mess up all the time but you are doing awesome, kid

Time to drop the pouty lip and learn to take a compliment


I'm b-b-braggin' and I'm puffin' up my feathers

A chicken with a switch in his position altogether

I'll stick my chest and neck out as I decorate this fairy tale

The color will attract a mate or aggravate the alpha males


Just find a purpose, don't consume, produce a tune or something new

Use your hands to make a thing that won't exist unless you do

You may not make a masterpiece or get your face in magazines

You won't be the next Newton just by nappin' under apple trees


And live your life like you're a kid, paint and dance and play and if

you make a thing, create a bit, you pin that shit up on the fridge!


I'm b-b-braggin' and I'm puffin' up my plumage

Persuading all the parakeets I'm perfect but the truth is

my vocab will distract you, you're just baffled you can talk to me

but don’t forget a parrot's only honest as he's taught to be


I might exaggerate to turn it up a notch

You know what they say: "Give the people what they want"

I might exaggerate to try to sound cool

Describe a shark tank while talkin' 'bout a kiddie pool…


...And I'm divin' right in it


I am swimmin' just to make a big splash

Little fish in big pond, little bird in bird bath

I can puff out my chest as I float on my back

I am bouyant, I guess, when I learn to relax

If I'm gonna speak up then I better impress

Make my diaphragm grow and my vocal cords stretch

and my voice'll get hoarse but my story will spread

like a pony tale told off the top of my head


I'm b-b-braggin' and I'm puffin' up my ego

A penguin playin' make believe but rockin' his tuxedo

I'll learn to wing it when I think that plan is goin' south

No matter what, I'll always strut, and find something to brag about
