You're irresistible The way you smell and move make me feel so good You're responsible You give me money, you bring me food You're indestructible Strong's your body, powerful your voice It's undeniable Since you came into my life, there's no choice You're reliable You'll never leave the house when I'm on the run You're original You got style, you got class, and we're having so much fun You're adorable Everywhere you go, people love you madly It's undeniable Without you, I would cry, I would suffer badly You're so flexible Look your body stretch and bend when we dance through the night You're inflatable I love the way you swell when I hold you tight You're pliable, squeezable, screwable Oh please take me, let me be your wife You're deductible, removable, tetrasyllable Accordion, accordion, accordion... You're the lover of my life

It rains, that's all it can do I wished I could do it too Cause if I could rain, I'd rain all day all over you Would you rain with me We'd rain a big blue sea Then we'd swim, in the waves of that sea Rained together by you and me We'd swim and rain, rain and swim rim and swain, swain and rim But never drown or drain Cumulonimbus me Eternally Silver pearls dripping on the shark home's window Drawing wrinkles in the shade of a weeping water willow Where the wind will never blow Cumulonimbus me P r e c i p i t a t i o n a l l y If you ever see a cloud Stuck in a tree, crying out loud, well, it could be me In endeavor to drizzle down Dreamers become fog in a nimbus gown Just stay with me And hug that tree

Coma 04:15
I’ve been laying in this bed for a whole year Well, that’s what I was told when I woke up a week ago Next to me, a strange man burst in tears Saying ‘It’s a miracle, darling we all missed you so’ But ever since I pretend not to hear Their talks, no I’d better try to get back this quiet feeling I m m o b i l e dans mon coma vigile, écouter les heures défiler I m m o b i l e dans mon coma vigile, je ne fais rien … ça fait du bien They bring me loads of presents every day Makes me feel like a fish in a vase of flowers How can I make these folks go away When they don’t cry, they’re chattering for hours Like a flock of starlings darkening the sky No I’d better try to get back this quiet feeling I m m o b i l e dans mon coma vigile, sentir les jours et les nuits s’enfuir I m m o b i l e dans mon coma vigile, je ne fais rien… ça fait du bien I’ll be laying in this bed for thousand years And I’ll travel far away in my imagination A rose-tree will grow over my souvenirs An empty mind on permanent vacation Will the stranger stay there next to me? He’ll have to learn how to fly to this quiet feeling I m m o b i l e dans mon coma vigile, entendre les semaines s’étendre I m m o b i l e dans mon coma vigile, je ne fais rien… ça fait du bien

Flop 03:38
Je bent druk bezig te vergeten waar je mee bezig was Want het is lichter te vergeten dan alles met je mee te slepen Maar op een dag vergeet je te vergeten en daar sta je dan Helemaal alleen met 1000 dozen om je heen Dozen vol met dromen, dromen die destijds Uit leken te komen als in een paradijs Maar dan kwam de winter en je droom bevroor Of één of andere hufter ging er zomaar mee vandoor Een flop, je komt er nooit meer bovenop Je neemt 'm mee waar je ook gaat Een flop blijft hangen in je kop als een oude langspeelplaat Middenin de kamer staar je naar de dozen om je heen De dozen staren terug in strak kartonnen pak Je kunt nog zo proberen het alarm te negeren Maar het zal niet lang meer duren of met een harde klap Knalt de eerste doos al open een ouwe souvenir Doet je zilte tranen lopen je wordt gekust door een vampier Zijn hete adem vult de kamer de waterketel fluit Met hoge schrille tonen ook deze laatste droom weer uit Een flop, je komt er nooit meer bovenop Je neemt 'm mee waar je ook gaat Een flop blijft hangen in je kop als een oude langspeelplaat Die dozen vol met drama's blunders en verdriet Breek ze nu maar open er is niemand die 't ziet De troep die er dan uitkomt fiksen we ter plekke Blinken zal de boel dat zullen we samen lappen Gooi dan de handel op de wagen En rij met mij mee naar de stad Antiek – daar kunnen we geld voor vragen Maak van je flop een goudmijn, hoe vind je dat? Flop te koop – Niet te verkroppen Een zeldzaam exemplaar Flop te koop – Totaal naar de knoppen Staat altijd voor u klaar

Lips 04:40
I've got love lips when I kiss my guy I've got sweet lips when I eat apple pie Frozen lips when I scream, hot lips when I come Tulips when I'm in Holland... that's fly I've got universalips when dancing on the moon Lunar eclips making werewolves swoon Take out your teeth now, shake your tongue Lick your lips and love this little lip-slip tune I've got Acropolips when standing on a hill Necropolips when I want to kill Cataclyps to destroy, Apocalypse Now The fire is burning and so are the spare lips on the grill I've got elipse when I'm out of square Metropolips when people everywhere Take out your teeth now, shake your tongue Lick your lips and love this little lip-slip air I've got sad lips when I say goodbye I've got sweet lips when I eat apple pie Philips to read when it's too dark to see But I only really wanna use my lips to kiss my guy

Waltzheimer 05:24
Strange empty faces Staring at me I don't hear any music But my foot counts till three And then my mind starts swirling a beautiful Waltzheimer Who are you darling Take your shoes off, come here In my arms you'll be safe While I hum in my ear Nice and softly this wonderful Waltzheimer Let me swim on your lap Climb through your eyes You can eat my past I'll drink all my lies I can't hear you darling Long gone are my ears They went fishing for stories In the sea of lost years And now I'm drowning in the silence of a howling Waltzheimer My eyes walked out Hunting for faces That are buried in caves Of forgotten races Winking to the beat of this powerful Waltzheimer Oh my love I must have been sleeping Why don't you wear shoes And why am I weeping
