A D C EEuphemism lasts and lasts and lasts and lasts and lasts and lasts and lasts and lasts
[Chorus]
A D E A EBoy, if you've got an axe to grind, be thankful for this time, for it gives you what you need

[Chorus]
A D E A EBoy, take a turnpike heading west, turn the people on to Beau Geste, cause that's what you did the best
A D EBoy, play the pipes till they're old and worn, sing the words till they fall forlorn
A ELike the pieces of a jigsaw jet
[Chorus]
A D E A EBoy, don't let the earth get in your face, its a middle-aged displace, its the middle ages snide
ABoy, we're a million miles away and to think its so insan, take a chance on a one way ride
[Chorus]
A D E A EBoy, shoot a rocket clean out of your mind, Oh these people ain't your kind, no they ain't your kind at all
A D E A EBoy, shoot a rocket clean out of your brain. No these people ain't the same, you can hear another call
[Chorus]
A D E A EBoy, the other book starts with no, they don't show us how to grow, they only show us how to win
A D E A EBoy, the secret's in the bicycle shed, in't no answers now they're dead, to seek is a mortal sin
A D E A EHey, you know boy let your madness be the clue
