Lyrics

You wear the lizard's shoes
And afterwards you get confused
You wear the lizard's coat
And afterwards you fail to float
You take the lizard's path
But look who's lying in the bath
You wear the lizard's skin
No man can be a god and win at all
Ahh

You take the lizard's mask
But look who's lying in the cask
And when the clocks have stopped
You'll find out what the lizard dropped
You know the lizard's won
But you can't work out how it's done
The lizard is your friend
And will be 'til the very end of time

You lie beneath the stars
The lizard knows how high they are
The stars are out of reach
The lizard lingers on a beach
The stars are out of date
The lizard had them on a plate
You vomit in the shed
The lizard got there first he's dead
No

It's the bat
Yeah
Oh
Oh
