Etc Lyrics

13 men stand on 13 hills
In their pockets they each hold 13 dollar bills
13 women in 13 cells
At the 13th hour they each ring 13 bells

I've got something in one of my hands,
Do you know what it is?
Do you think you understand?
Ha ha ha!

7 million in 7 banks
Yield 7 words of english more than thanks
7 soldiers drive 7 tanks
To the 7th place where everyone gives thanks

I've got something in one of my hands
Do you know what it is?
Do you think you understand?
Ho ho ho!

Cause if you think
that it all makes no sense
it's the song for the dense

E-t-c-e-t-e-r-a
E-t-c-e-t-e-r-a
E-t-c-e-t-e-r-a
E-t-c-e-t-e-r-a

30 million in 30 states
They all earn more so they get charged higher rates
30 biscuits on 30 plates
Different colors cause they were made on different dates

I've got something, and what about this?
Do you know what it is?
Do you think you understand?
Hee hee hee!

Cause if you think
that it all makes no sense
it's the song for the dense

Ahhhhhhhhhhh, whoa whoa whoa-oh-whoa....

wow! someone actually figured out these lyrics? there is no band i know of that is harder to decipher than dramarama. i have always figured that john felt like writing a song about his locker combination lol

An error occured.

however, i also considered that it may be a birthdate- coincidence?

evi.com/q/who_was_born_on_july_13th_1930

@starwhisp: An American like John would put that date as 7/13/30, not 13-7-30.

And to a European, 13-7-30 wouldn't be a birthdate, it would be the first ever World Cup. But I don't think that's what John was singing about either

And Naomi Shemer may be an important singer (she wrote the unofficial anthem of Israel, etc.), but she doesn't seem like the kind of person John would obsess over. I mean, she never even met Frank Sinatra.

An error occured.

notice the first person linked on the page has something to do with poetry and song, and the second with linguistics and communication ;)
