Jellyfish – Sebrina, Paste, and Plato (1993)

From Jellyfish’s 1993 album Spilt Milk, songwriters Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. and Andy Sturmer channel their inner Brian Wilson & Beatles through XTC compression, punctuated by Brian May guitar punches, with surreal lyrics out of Alice in Wonderland:

Far behind the forest of flying paper aeroplanes
Grazing on the grounds of ponytails
The substitute is counting down her ticks till recess
Hammering down to size her fingernails
Because today’s the day Sebrina builds her box lunch buffet
(Kool-aid, sandwiches and chips for all the shoulders)
Lunch is on the table, soon dessert is on the floor
So serene Sebrina makes me feel so serene
So serene Sebrina makes me feel so serene…
