She broke down and cry at the strip mall acupuncture
While the world went on outside
The Chinese doctor took her arm,
gazed at the floor and read her wrist for the secrets in her mind.
'Here's your medicine', she said,
'If you not smile at him, then someone else will'.
You hold that thought, and I'll hold that thought, too.
Uh, uh, uh, uh

Always... the 36 ways I'm not available
On the simple easy...
Later on that evening I'm on a beach in Santa Monica
It was a very risky start
Suppose this stupid chart is right
In a year you'll still feel the same
Oh, you hold that thought, and I'll hold that thought, too!
Uh, uh, uh!

Did you ever see the film where a man is giving spectacles
That make the world look upside down?
We fought about the place, but in time, this somehow readjust
And when we take the glasses off,
The eyes is always... the sky below him
And he falls again

But you hold that thought, and I'll hold that thought
You hold that thought, and I'll hold that thought
You hold that thought, and I'll hold that thought!
Uh, uh, uh
