lyrics

If you were a zombie, I would let you eat my brain
And the leftovers I'd wrap in cellophane
And save them for the weekend, Sunday, supper time
When the trees whisper in the rain.

And if you were a gangster, I would never have you whacked
Even if my consigliere said "attack"
And we can take the old projector out of the box
So you can watch that movie on my back.

A sail in the distance, scientists in search,
They don't know and they cannot be warned,
There's no mermaids in the bay, because they all swam away
On the day, on the day
You were born

I can't solve the riddle no matter how I try
And the answer is written on my eyes
And the Sphinx looks very happy, but you never hear him talk,
I think he wants to go for a walk.

Spaceship in the distance, scientists in search,
They don't know and they cannot be warned,
There's no martians to X-ray, because they all flew away
On the day, on the day
You were born.
