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
but I missed my bed
so 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
just surprised to still
be on my own...."
Ooh, 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 leave
Ooh, but don't mention love
I'd hate the pain of 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
Ooh, but don't mention love
no - just 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, phone me
so phone me, phone me, phone me
Ooh, I think I'm in love
Ooh, I think I'm in love
Oho, I think I'm in love
Urrgh, I think I'm in lerv
