When I was boy in Utrecht technical school
The teachers said that I, I broke every rule
Drawing him with crooked teeth and mouth
It was not me, it was that stinker Klaus!

They kicked me out for the world to see
I could not got to Utrecht University

X!
X is for unknown
X rays, X rays
I want to see your bones
X!
My rays from vacuum tube
X rays! X rays!
I’ll see you in the nude.

To Zurich I went to get my PHD
It was a very wonderful University
Then I thought I could go and see my aunt
Columbia had offered me a grant

It seemed that I was just too late
When war broke out I just couldn’t emigrate

X!
X is for unknown
X rays! X rays!
I want to see your bones, call them
X!
Don’t name them after me
X rays! X rays!
Now I’ve got my PHD

It was early november I was working in my room
Passing a charge through a tube with a vacuum
A shimmering light upon the screen
A skeleton could plain be seen

Call them
X!
X is for unknown
X rays! X rays!
I want to see your bones, call them
X!
They’re messing with my head
X rays! X rays!
I’ll stay behind the lead

My life has been full of discovery
But please do not remember me
A humble man until my dying day
But I wouldn’t mind a nobel prize one day

Burn my papers when I am dead
And do please remember to stay behind the lead
X!
X is for unknown
X rays! X rays!
I want to see your bones
X!
My rays from vacuum tube
X rays! X rays!
I’ll see you in the tube, call them
X!
They’re messing with my head
X rays! X rays!
I’ll stay behind the lead, call them
X!
Don’t name them after me
X rays! X rays!
I’ve got my PHD, call them
X! X rays!
X is for unknown
X rays! X rays!
Just show me your bones
X!
X rays! X rays!
X rays! X rays!
