lyrics

Attention passengers
We are now entering an unexpected turn
Please hold on to your hats, pushcarts, strollers and loose clothing
Please keep your hands inside at all times

Welcome to the strange and delirious anomalous now
Side effects may include:
Waves, watery waves of ups and downs
Waves of ups and downs, waves of ups and downs

Exhilaration, dread, disbelief, belief
Gratefulness, sadness, saudade, anger
Unbridled happiness, creative energy, complete lack of it
And very vivid private dreams

Swearing in Hungarian, strange cravings for bananas
Fear of strangers
And general mild discombobulation

Please hold on tight, try to keep your chin up
And don’t forget to let your friends and family members know that you’re okay

Ba badaba…badababadaba
Ba badaba bop bop bop bomb ba da ba


And now if I may, I’d like to introduce you to the band:

First off we have the wonderful Mother Superior on mechanical percussion
And here behind the human drum kit, our very special guest star: the one and only Budgie
Joining us with noises from the beyond, my long time business partner The Hornicator
And of course here in my arms, let’s not forget Hank the Guitar

Ba badaba…badababadaba
Ba badaba bop bop bop bomb ba da ba
