Lyrics

Hello,

I am the ghost of Troubled Joe Hung by his pretty white neck Some eighteen months ago I traveled to a mystical time zone And I missed my bed and I soon came home

They said: "There's too much caffeine in your blood stream And a lack of real spice in your life"

I said: "Leave me alone because I'm alright, Dad Surprised to still be on my own"

Oh, but don't mention love I'd hate the strain of the pain again

A rush and a push And the land that we stand on is ours It has been before, so it shall be again And people who are uglier than you and I They take what they need and just leave

Oh, but don't mention love I'd hate the pain and the strain all over again

A rush and a push And the land that we stand on is ours It has been before, so why can't it be now? And people who are weaker than you and I They take what they want from life

Oh, but don't mention love No, no, don't mention love

A rush and a push And the land that we stand on is ours Your youth may be gone but you're still a young man So phone me, phone me So phone me, phone me, phone me

Oh, I think I'm in love Oh, I think I'm in love Oh, I think I'm in love, I think I'm in love Urrgh, I think I'm in lerv...
