Lyrics

You know about Steely Dan
I know about chains
Betcha don't know where you grow your brains

You know about talcum power 
I know about fleas
Betcha don't know which of us is me

In the first life of the father
Lock the door and walls this evenin'
Covered up your head with lather
'Cos you know you won't be leavin'

I could sail at dawn tomorrow
With a bone inside my pocket

The people said I'd eat with sadists
In the swimming pool
Trod upon a frog upon a
Piece of cotton wool

I believe in nothing right
Except we get it off tonight
Wrap me in a yellow skin and 
Rock me in a church
Peel it off on Saturday and
Watch the ceiling lurch

You know about squeezing it
I know that ya can
Please assist me I'm a rubber man

You look like a duplicate
I feel like a clone
Oh won't you give me back my bone

Treat me to a juicy crumpet
With them horns of silky matter
When you're oozing in the disco
Well then nothing seems to matter
With the moon drips in the basin
While the sun sets in the batter

Altogether be my eighth
Altogether be my eighth

Apologise to seventh Sally

Altogether be my eighth
Altogether be my eighth
Altogether be my eighth
Altogether be my eighth

Apologise to seventh Sally

Altogether be my eighth
Altogether be my eighth
Altogether be my eighth
Altogether be my eighth

Apologise to seventh Sally

Altogether be my eighth
Altogether be my eighth
Altogether be my eighth

No no no no no
