    Lyrics

    Put your big toe in the milk of human kindness
    Have you ever seen the like of this mankind?
    If a boy or girl is cute, we simply shoot to starry heights
    Any maybe, any might
    But always so capricious, in the face of wonder we're suspicious
    And though we came from frogs and fishes
    Our taste is far from fine
    Put your big toe in the milk of human kindness

    Put your big toe in the milk of human kindness
    Have you ever seen the like of this mankind?
    You take the Himalayas, you'll take Manhattan's finest mountain top
    He wouldn't change his whiskey sour for any bitter crop

    But always so contrary, from Father Christmas to the Virgin Mary
    And though the moments of belief
    Fly by before you find if you'd just unhand your mind
    Put your big toe in the milk of human kindness

    But always so contrary, from Father Christmas to the Virgin Mary
    And though the moments of belief
    Fly by before you find if you'd just unhand your mind
    Put your big toe in the milk of human kindness
