Right After The Ball in The Moonlight

Mel Gibson and Elton John have crystal faces
They stand silently in the moonlight,
A gorilla comes up and smashes Mel Gibson’s
Crystal face on the floor
A stagecoach pulled by Unicorns passes
Elton John laughs a little bit

You see your Disney face in the mirror
Keep seeing elves and mummy in green
You just saw me outside me you said
I just saw a fly in a Benetton jumper
And a dog with a beautiful tulip head,
I see your sunshine fingers smiling

It’s a great big night outside
And I’m watching my neighbour
Polishing a dinosaur in the driveway

I understand him well,
His physics turning in to nothing
In a small mountain town like this

Tripping through the past
Champagne fizzing in his teeth
A little lonely inside this air

Looking at a giant frog in a top hat

Under the cold light of the moon
He’s being attacked by chimpanzees

Knowing that the lights come and go
And they do
