"Out of My System" is a deleted song originally written for The Muppets by My Morning Jacket's Jim James. It was originally supposed to be sung by Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, but it was deleted from the film. Although it eventually appeared on the band's album Circuital with an alternative title, "Outta My System."

On the album's lyric sheet, Jim James had written a note about the song: "For E.M. Band idea. R.I.P." Ironically, it was a reference to the failed Electric Mayhem Tour, which would have featured the band and music behind the Electric Mayhem.


They told me not to smoke drugs, but I wouldn’t listen

Never thought I’d get caught and wind up in prison

Chalk it up to youth but young age I ain’t dissing

I guess I just had to get it outta my system

Outta my system

Outta my system

Oh lord I’d never do it now I know what I ain’t missing

Glad I went and got it all outta my system

The luster of youth versus married security

I’m glad I’m here now, but just between you and me

I had to get it out and make the deals

And learn to know how it feels, but that it ain’t real

Outta my system

Outta my system

There’s a way to have it all you know I ain’t kidding

Some things I know I’ll never get outta my system

If you don’t live now, you ain’t even trying

And then you’re on your way to a midlife crisis

Livin' it out anyway you feel

You can feel it in your bones, but try to deny it

Wipe it off your face but your eyes won’t hide it

You knew it all along but never made it clear

They told me not to steal cars, said I’d wind up in prison

Thought I knew it all yea I wouldn’t listen

Chalk it up to young age but youth I ain’t dissing

I guess I just had to get it outta my system

Outta my system

Outta my system

I’m glad I did it all then I know what I ain’t missing

Glad I went and got it all outta my system

I’m glad I did it all now I know what I ain’t missing

Glad I went and got it all outta my system

I’m glad I did it all now I know what I ain’t missing

Glad I went and got it all outta my system
