What have we here?
What have we here in the land of hills?
Where the heat will crack your mirrors
And warp your windowsills?
He spills his mind on paper:
"Her voice is effervescent
Her hair is the color of tangerine gum
And her fingernails fluorescent"

This way to lose
That way to win
The other side doesn't know
What kind of day it's been

This, that, the other, okay, well
Sometimes I make no sense to me
The war between the heads and tails
Battle at the pass or fail
It's all the same eventually

A day unlike none other
Found her winding back her clocks
"Nice bellybutton ring," he called
"Did you find it in a Crackerjack box?"
"As a matter of fact, this is an heirloom
From my tenth cousin, twice removed
If you wanted me to see what a fool acts like
I guess your point was proved"

This way to lose
That way to win
The other side likes to show
What kind of mood it's in

This, that, the other, okay, well
Sometimes you make no sense to me
The war between the heads and tails
Battle at the pass or fail
It's all the same eventually
