I went to the mirror this morning I looked in the mirror instead The first thing to come into focus Was a face wrapped all around my head
There's something sticking out of the middle I guess it's my nose (I suppose) I just don't recognize those eyes All these years I've been watching from the other side
The voice is now one of brutal stupefication. The underlying question is - "If You went crazy, would you know it?" Uh oh, here I go thinking them crazy thoughts again. Who is that there? You mean I been walking around
In that all these years? What's it all about? Where's it all at? I don't want to get heavy but What am I doing here? uh My lip has a dark spot upon it
(The voice of a mature adult who's comprehensive Capacity has suddenly been reduced to that of a Cherrystone clam)
My teeth look like plastic in chips And there on my chin I discover One lonely red and arrogant zit I went about my business this morning
You got to get out of bed and make that bread But try as I may to get away I won't forget what I seen in the mirror today Boogie on out to a brand new day.
Get off your back and dance! I seen my eyes. I seen my nose. My lips. My teeth. My, my gums. I seen my gums! I looked all the way Down my throat! I looked at my ears. I looked real Hard at my ears. I looked at my hair. I think I'm going Bald. I had hair all over the sink or something...
