lyrics

GOOD EVENING FAMILY!

Take the green lift to the 7th floor
Check out the window, enjoy the elevation
Follow the green line on the shiny floor
Nod at the nurses at their station

Here’s the room it’s 29A
The curtain’s closed so you wait
For just a moment then you push on through
(No one’s interested in you)
You’re not interested in you

Good evening family!
Where did you spring from?
It’s a lovely evening
Just a little windy
Don’t mind my blathering
I’ll watch you sleeping
And when you’re good and ready
What say we all
What say we all
What say we all

People say, Look at those tiny hands
And look at those tiny feet
They say she looks a lot like you
And when does Dad get his feed?
One of the other mothers leaves the room
Hard to believe that’ll be us soon
Hey I’ve cleaned the car for you
(No one cares about the car)
Time stopped and then it

Good evening family
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ga ga ga ga ga ga
You’ve stolen my language
It’s a lovely evening
It’s a complete mystery
Are you both warm enough?
I feel like a furnace.
What say we all
What say we all
What say we all
go home
go home
go home
