Bang Bang

she woke me up with a bang, bang
looking over cross eyed had a big
hunch that the world was a big lie
when I got up all the blood to my head
I got so dizzy fell back to my bed
I went over to the way side
looking for the high tide
what will I find will I find will I find
all I saw was a man that had a hat
that had a porn-porn he’s been there for
years can someone tell me how long

wake up to tell me
wake up to show me
what I could not find

you see this woman woke me up
at a quarter to three and I didn’t
know it then but she put a spell on
me said I had to go down to where
the cliffs mee the sea and mean an
old man to present my plea
so I headed way down to the big pier
to await and confront my big fear
I wheeled around behind to my
blindside to find and old man with a
lime and a kind eye
mister, mister withyour beard so long
won’t you be a saint and tell me
just where I’m going
he pointed to a conk shell and then
to the lime and said this is all
I really need to get by


hey mister man
I know you don’t know
who you think I am
but I can safely say, that I
should’ve been sleeping the day
away I said scuse me, if you’ve got the
time he shrugged his shoulders
said get a spine
coconut hit me on the head
jonesin’ for a fig
I booked last night
I need another fix
just then I see a twinkle twinkle
in the old man’s eye and a wave
tossed bottle in thrown to the sky

I caught it on the rebound
it landed with a soft sound
I took out the message and put the
bottle down
inside was the antidote to the spell
I read it to the old man ’cause he
couldn’t read so well
said don’t worry about a
thing you know your
path is true just ease your
mind have a banana
or two

Goodness, goodness, woe is me
the man nearly flipped to learn
that he was free but just before we
left and started kicking it
I picked up the bottle and star sixed it

if that woman comese to you with
her song so sweet, say damn
let the poor sucker sleep
