Somewhere inside
Somewhere inside me
Lying around are the words I seek

Watch while I think
Think while you're watching
Holding my thoughts I will try to speak

Oh! Wasn't it funny?
What you can do with one small word?
Oh! Wasn't it painful?
This was the last straw I could afford

One summer day
One summer morning
I was still yawning when you called

You had my note
What could you answer?
Yes, I was listening but
You said no.

Oh! What can I tell you?
What a nice story I provoked
Oh my! She should have been here
We could be laughing at this joke.

Oh man! Sharpen your arrows
Load all your guns and tie the rope
Hang me! Burn me and shoot me
This is too much for me to cope

Everybody look around
Check out what's there to be found
Don't lose your chance.

Everybody make a wish
Everybody smile before
I say goodbye to you
