If you ever get close to a human
And human behavior
Be ready to, ready to get confused
And me and my hair

There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
To human behavior
And yet so, yet so irresistible
And me and my hair

And there is no map
In society

They're terribly, terribly, terribly moody
And human behavior
Then all of a sudden turn happy
And me and my hair

But, oh, to get involved in the exchange
Of human emotions
Is ever so, ever so satisfying
And me and my hair

Hey, yah
And there is no map
In society

Human behavior
Human behavior
Human behavior
Human behavior

And there is no map
And a compass wouldn't help at all
Shine in society

Human behavior
Human behavior
Human behavior
Human behavior

Human behavior
Human behavior
Human behavior
Human behavior

    General CommentI transcribed this by ear, but I think some of the lines are fishy ("Inside an tea" and "Me and my hair" being particularly dubious)

    General CommentI did, but Colin Meloy added a few lines, those are the ones I couldn't quite make out, but this is what I hear.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure those aren't added lines, he's just imitating the nonsense lines that Bjork sings. Nobody bothers transcribing them in the Bjork lyrics because they're not actual words. She throws em into a lot of her songs.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of Dr. Who looking at human society. :) "They're so WEIRD... but so FASCINATING!"
