Thorazine shuffle

Well now you take your right arm and you shake it all around,
and then you open up your mouth and you drool on the ground,
and then you try to speak but you just mumble a lot,
so you hold onto your head, cuz it's the only one ya got,
and then you're doing the shuffle, the Thorazine shuffle.
