mushroom clouds over your bed
after it has crawled into your head
forms some giant novel to be read
of your, of your, your funny little strangelove

traffic signs on a detour
leads you round in circles round the bay
til you're toothless, old, and bald or grey
this life, this life, this life is such a strange route

the sky's full of scary things
that could wipe us out at any minute
so let's make love!
let's live it up, live it up, live it up
young man/young woman

if my brother falls then i will pick him up
if my sister tells a lie then i will straighten her out
if your sister falls then you must pick her up
if your brother tells a lie then you must straighten him out
if i see you fall then i will pick you up
and if you hear me tell a lie then
you must straighten me out

mushroom cloud, mushroom cloud, mushroom cloud...
