"Nature Boy" as written by and Freedy Johnston....
Waiting for Nature Boy
After falling out of bed
Pressed his sentimental leaf
Look him up hand to mouth

Let me tell you about Nature Boy
And the man with the double chin
Now you be serious
Or I'll lock you down in the cellar with him

Pulled a gun on Nature Boy
Bet the planet don't spin
Piled up a door, a tree limb, a bag of cans, a bean bag

On tour with Nature Boy
Barking like a clown
Oiled and smiling
Light brown and ivory

That day I kind of grew
Gills and fins
I said, "The race that's through
Is the one I'm in"

You looked at Nature Boy
Passed out in my arms
I thought everybody knew

Let me tell you about Nature Boy
And the man with the double chin
Lost as a baby to wolves
Then through effort, frustration

Here comes Nature Boy
Would you look at him
Raised by wolves
Now he's in the Senate, President!

Let me show you courage, friend
Barking like a clown
When the moon, the clouds, the sea, the animals, even the rocks

Looking at Nature Boy
Standing in the setting sun
Looking at Nature Boy
Standing like a mannequin

That day I kind of grew
Gills and fins
I said, "The race that's through
Is the one I'm in"

You looked at Nature Boy
Passed out in my arms
I thought everybody knew

The sign said "Nature Boy
Five miles ahead'
Tall and strong
Alert to changing needs
Growing, changing
Growing fur, wings, a horn, sharp and dangerous gills,
And a third eye

Does not sleep as we know it
Long tongue, never fully concealed hooves
A scaly tail and back
And a pouch of mystery, which moves

This is the story of Nature Boy

[Repeat: x3]
And the man with the double chin
