Well, the rainman comes
With his magic wand
And the judge says
"Mona can't have no bond"
And the walls collide
Mona cries
And the rainman leaves
In the wolfman's disguise

I wanna be your lover
Baby, I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover, baby
I don't wanna be hers
I wanna be yours

Well, the undertaker
In his midnight suit
Says to the masked man
"Ain't you cute"
Well, the mask man
He gets up on the shelf
And he says
"You ain't so bad yourself"

I wanna be your lover
Baby, I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover, baby
I don't wanna be hers
I wanna be yours

Well, jumpin' Judy
Can't go no higher
She had bullets in her eyes
And they fire
Rasputin he's so dignified
He touched the back of her
Head an' he died

I wanna be your lover
Baby, I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover, baby
I don't wanna be hers
I wanna be yours

Well, Phaedra with her
Looking glass
Stretchin' out
Upon the grass
She gets all messed up
And she faints
That's 'cause
She's so obvious
And you ain't

I wanna be your lover
Baby, I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover, baby
I don't wanna be hers
I wanna be yours
