Megalodon - My New Straight Jacket (Shadow)

lyrics

The day had dawned and I stepped in
I spun around to see a urinal
I tipped my hat and walked away
I snapped and snapped and clicked my RAT pedal

With a little bit of flash, and a lot of John Cleese
Adjust my hat like I'm Bob Fosse

My mother wanted a ballerina
but I just wanted to be Gene Kelly
I love myself in my straight jacket
but I must say, I dance like Ed Grimley

I'm on the edge when the sun comes up
I spread my wings until they're fully fanned
I wish I could make out with my hat
It's embarrassing, they don't understand

With a little bit of flash, and a lot of John Cleese
Adjust my hat like I'm Bob Fosse

My mother wanted a ballerina
but I just wanted to be Gene Kelly
I love myself in my straight jacket
but I must say, I dance like Ed Grimley

With a little bit of flash, and a lot of John Cleese
Adjust my hat like I'm Bob Fosse

I kick the sun and smash the flowers
The windmill of life should never stop
My hat's become my new straight jacket
I'm not on top, I am a top
