Stranger from another planet, welcome to our hole
Just strap on your guitar and we'll play some Rock 'N Roll

Why were you so surprised that you never saw the stranger?
Did you ever let your lover see the stranger in yourself?

Remember how I found you there
Alone in your electric chair
I told you dirty jokes until you smiled

But I can see you,
Your brown skin shining in the sun.
You got your hair combed back
And your sunglasses on, baby.
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone.

So I asked her if she still cared
She didn't hear me, she just stared
Do you know what I mean?
Lord, do you know what I mean?

And he thought he heard the echo of a penny whistle band
And the laughter from a distant caravan
And the brightly painted line of circus wagons in the sand
Fading through the door into summer

The power of love is a curious thing
Make a one man weep, make another man sing

Because there's no explaining what your imagination
Can make you see and feel

Seems like a dream
They got me hypnotized

When the dead come arising
You see their eyes, you're hypnotized and
They eat your guts out
And now you're the living dead

Stop hitching the monster man
It was a bad plan,
But i had to get to town
Unbitten,
But the way i found it was a hand came down
And pow,
I got illuminated

I see seven towers
But I only see one way out
You got to cry without weeping
Talk without speaking
Scream without raising your voice

You know I took the poison
From the poison stream
Then I floated out of here
Singing ha la la la de day

Ain't but one way out baby, Lord I just can't go out the door
Ain't but one way out baby, and Lord I just can't go out the door
'Cause there's a man down there, might be your man, I don't know

Six saintly shrouded men move across the lawn slowly.
The seventh walks in front with a cross held high in hand.
And it's--hey babe your supper's waiting for you.
Hey my baby, don't you know our love is true.

My baby does the hanky panky
My baby does the hanky panky
My baby does the hanky panky
My baby does the hanky panky
My baby does the hanky panky
(Oh I don't believe it)
I saw her walking on down the line
You know I saw her for the very first time
A pretty little girl standing all alone
Hey, pretty baby, can I take you home
I never saw her, never ever saw her

I'm sorry it went down like this
And someone had to lose
It's the nature of the business
It's the smuggler's blues

It was reds and yellows and greens and browns
And scarlets and blacks and ochres and peachs
And rubys and olives and violets and fawns
And lilacs and golds and chocolates and mauves
And creams and crimsons and silvers and roses
And azures and lemons and russets and greys
And purples and whites and pinks and oranges
And reds and yellows and greens and browns
And scarlets and blacks and ochres and peachs
And rubys and olives and violets and fawns
And lilacs and golds and chocolates and mauves
And creams and crimsons and silvers and roses
And azures and lemons and russets and greys
And purples and whites and pinks and oranges
And blues

Got the blues for the '50s, miss the early '60s, too.
From the tip of my duck-tail to the toe of my blue suede shoes.

There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face

Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine
