I guess the folks that pulled the strings
Had their mind on other things
They reach for big brass rings
In the beyond

And the kids got off their knees
They could speak in Japanese
So we handed them the keys
And they drove us home

And they slept in kind of late
Got up and tuned to Channel 8
Electric Company's great
And so was Zoom

When the Big Blue Marble sang
Kung Fu's name was Cane
And the kids laughed and shouted Shane
And had a ball

And they went outside to play
In the broke-down Chevrolet
That sits there to this day
Out in the yard

And he's so bored (and she's so tired)
And he's so weird (and she's so wired)

And the kids grew up to be
The essential referees
Demanding custody
Of all the bombs

And they took them all apart
And turned them into art
At least it was a start
Or so they say

And all the best cowboys' eyes
Made 'em look like Chinese guys
To the Indians that fly
The thunderbird

He's so bored (she's so tired)
And he's so weird (she's so wired)

And the kids grew up to be
Tall enough to see
The forest through the trees
And beyond

And the men who played with guns
Had to answer to their moms
Had to take it like it comes
To be a man

'Cause all the best cowboys' eyes
Made 'em look like Chinese guys
To the Indians that fly
The thunderbird

And the guy who wrote that song
Handed my friend a bong
And said see you later, so long
So long
So long forever

He's so bored (she's so tired)
He's so weird (she's so wired)
