Now, everybody tells you're the dog's best friend
I'm the cat's meow since I don't know when
I'm an instigator from a dead man's town
So when did the whole world turn upside down?
When did you change your mind?
When did you lose the juice?
Now, where did you get your attitude?
When did you give it away?
What did the old man say?
And how many babies did you kick today?
Now, how many nights can the full moon shine?
How many bottles of water can you turn to wine
When the blood has flowed against the tides of time
And the water flows forever? Hey, hey, hey
Now, I'm gonna build a boat, I'm gonna make it float
'Cause I'm getting the chase for a faraway place
Gonna set the sail, gonna catch some wind
And the big red sky's gonna be my only friend
With a boat for two, just me and you
You can be my teacher, I can teach you too
Gonna try a few things that I've never done
Maybe talk to the fishes, maybe have some fun
Maybe shake my pale fist at the angry stars
While I dance a jig under the eyes of Mars
When we get to an island where no one's ever been
We can get down and dirty in our animal skins
And I stand with my thing hanging out in the wind
Where the water's sweet like honey
Hey, hey, yeah, hey, hey, yeah, yeah, hey, now
I've been feeling a chill, from the East wind blue
Is it creeping up slow, have you felt it too?
Have you noticed the look, have you felt the feel?
Did it make you blush when the piggy squealed?
Have you heard what they say, did you read the news?
Said, the old man's coming home a singing the blues
Gonna whack your fanny, gonna tan your hide
Make your ears turn red and make you gonna cry
Now, well, how many children gonna lose their minds
How many crying girls will be left behind?
When the dead start walking and the full moon shines
When the dead start walking and the full moon shines
When the dead start walking and the full moon shines
When the dead start walking and the full moon shines
When the dead start walking, yeah
Now, everybody sing to the heavens above
And everybody dance to the sounds of love
Won't you clack your teeth, won't you smack your hands?
Won't you dig your little heads right out of the sand?
Won't you jiggle your butt, won't you wave your arms?
Won't you look like you just came off of the farm?
Won't you stop your fighting for a second or two?
Won't you help your neighbors, won't you do the do?
Won't you taste the sugar, won't you eat the cake?
Won't you get your ugly mug right out of my face?
Won't you tell your brothers and your sisters tonight
That you tasted the water and the water was right?
Won't you taste the sugar, won't you dance the dance?
Won't you wake up? Please and come on out of your trance
Everybody make believe that you disappear
For a second or two, gonna feel so queer
And you left behind all your rage and fear
And it made you feel like water
