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...
