Rainbows and Unicorns

I

I’m always off to see that girl again
Her girly ways will light my life again
I know i’m spinning like a swirl again
And I’ll be lying to my wife again

For whatever was born from experience
will submit to what’s still holding none
The sugar is sweetened, the tales are all told
A scent of the New Age, a night’s manyfold
And an hour before dawn I’ll be gone

II

So, we’ve actually turned insane again
The Tin Woodman, the Coward Lion and Cupid here again
I’m in need of a brand new brain again
‘cause I’ll be acting very stupid here again

For whatever was born from experience
is a jerk for what’s still holding none
The sugar is sweetened, the tales are all told
A scent of the New Age, a night’s manyfold
And before she wakes up I’ll be gone

CHORUS

I’ll give you the moon, baby
when your star is born
Bring on those rainbows, baby
And I’ll wake up the unicorn

Your ticket to the feverous
ride through infinity
Maybe afterwards we’ll
discuss my divinity

Spin my magic zodiac, honey
Power my libido’s light
Always trust Santa, tooth fairies
and me
You’re way cool,
let’s get on with this night

III

You’ll be learning every trick again
And magic will be in the air again
We’ll go there just by a flick again
Oh my god, those glory days are here again

But what should have been born from experience
sure looks more like it’s still holding none
Your sugar is sweetened, your tales are all told
A scent of the New Age, and you’re in control
You’ll go when I sleep and you’re done

BRIDGE

Oo-oh, those melons and peaches
Still life coming alive when she reaches
out for the RC, the J and the candy
Dazed and befuddled I must surrender to
her dimples of Venus, her modus operandi

CHORUS

I’ll give you the moon, baby
when your star is born
Bring on those rainbows, baby
And I’ll wake up the unicorn

Your ticket to the feverous
ride through infinity
Maybe afterwards we’ll
discuss my divinity

Spin my magic zodiac, honey
Power my libido’s light
Always trust Santa, tooth fairies
and me
You’re way cool,
let’s get on with this night

(Repeat chorus)
