At 11:06, my watch stopped ticking
My telephone started to ring
The voice on the line said, "Have you got the twine?"
Then I started to sing

I said, "What's so important 'bout peaches and cream?
Wake up and start living, it's a beautiful dream
The box spring's turning in the music machine
And your grandmother's run from the room
It's only a matter of twine before I have run for the exit, too"

The meter's full, the moon needs a quarter
My name is caught in a tree
The one-armed bandit stole my arms
Now they all think he's me

Because he said, "What's so important 'bout peaches and cream?
Wake up and start living, it's a beautiful dream
The box spring's turning in the music machine
And your grandmother's run from the room
It's only a matter of twine before I have run for the exit, too"
