Is there anybody going to listen to my story
about a lucky man who made the grade
He went out tiger hunting with his elephant and gun
bang bang shoot shoot
He’s a mean old man,
tuned to a natural E
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
I said, Who put all those things in your head?
I can show you, I can show you:
Living is easy with eyes closed
Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream
Have you heard, the word is LOVE
She said, “I know what it’s like to be dead,
how does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?”
I said, No, No, No - you’re wrong,
Although I laugh and I act like a clown,
I’m a loser, and I’m not what I appear to be.
Christ you know it ain’t easy, you know how hard it can be,
Everywhere, people stare, each and every day.
Everybody’s got something to hide except for me and my monkey
I’m so tired; I don’t know what to do.
This happened once before,
I’ve had a drink or two and I don’t care.
Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Bulldog standing in the rain,
Semolina Pilchard climbing up the Eiffel Tower,
Well I just had to laugh…
half of what I say is meaning-less
I’ve got nothing to say but it’s okay
The sun is up, the sky is blue
I’m in love with you.
