Lyrics

As I was swimming under the sea
I heard the voices calling to me
Know that you're drowning, too late to stop
We're here to help you over the top
Now I'm a doctor, now you're a nurse
Now you're an astronaut driving a hearse

Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say,
Goodnight
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight

Opening Janet serious find
Head full of granite ever so kind
Send for the orderly too late to come
Drunk and disorderly under your thumb
Tissues from Venice wipe on a dial
Crawling a lettuce ever so vile

Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say,
Goodnight

Drowning in concert serious valve
Helping the dishes unto themselves
Cycling madly through Honiton Clyst
Where my dear friend Bradley has died of a cyst
Oh.

Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight I say, goodnight I say
Goodnight
