He was a tall tall man
With eyes like coals
He was a tall tall man
His head in clouds
He had to lay flat in the street
To buy a paper
And folks were scared to meet his gaze
For fear he'd seer them

He was a lonely man
Solo on rooftops
He longed for face to face
He wanted contact
People were scared of him
Though he was handsome
And he'd walk straight down the meridian

It took a long long time
For him to find her
She was a tall tall girl
Her head in clouds
He couldn't see her eyes
'Cause it was foggy
But he could feel her hands
So warm on schedule

He put his long long arms around her
She took his long long tongue inside her
They put their long long past behind them
They let their long long flame expand x4

He was a tall tall man
With eyes like coals
He was a tall tall man
His head in clouds
He had to lay flat in the street
To buy a candle
And folks were scared to meet his gaze
For fear he'd see them x3
