They're applauding the player piano
The roll has run its course
The conversation's swelling
Though the guests have all dispersed

They fell out through the windows
They left through the doors
They danced on the ceiling
'Til they fell through the floors

The gears are out of place
But the roll still gently spins
The moon has hid it's face
So we'll have to burn the candle from both ends

Aren't we animals after all
Animals don't know right from wrong
So if my hands should get red tonight
Animals don't know wrong from right

I will show you, I will show you
Life is not a game
I'll make damn sure you know
I'll make damn sure you know
I'll make damn sure you remember my name
