Bang Bang
« back
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 into 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 meet the sea and meet 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 an old man with a
lime and a kind eye
mister, mister with your 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
    wake up to tell me
    wake up to show me
    what I could not find

    hey mister man
    I know you don't know
    who you think I think I am
    but I can safely say, that I
    should've been sleeping the day

away I said scuse me, you 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 is 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 man 'cause he
couldn't read so well
said don't worry about a
thing you know you
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
kick kick shuffle shuffle back to the beat
with a tune on my lips and my quest in reach
if that woman comes to you with
her song so sweet, say damn
let the poor sucker sleep
    wake up to tell me
    wake up to show me
    what I could not find
