Lyrics

Yes, I wondered who the fuck you were
Fat clown in an evening gown
Show up late and burn the bank down
Jump up like harem scare 'em
Don't like the shoes but I'll wear 'em

Yes, I spoofed a spoof
Sensitive yet bulletproof
Say yes to the grand champion
Pay the rent, keep the dishes clean
I got stuck in black tar
Going to Vienna, just around the streetcar

Mr. Miscellaneous, I trust you will combust
Goth girls holler in the bright cafes
I call it corn, you call it maize
Sleeping in the back of a car
My guitars, très bizarre, properties en masse
Messing with the monkeys behind the glass

He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands

The tribulations and the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands

Throw out the data that you advocated
Rebuke the school that you graduated
Enthralling, whole calling
She's the best and you're appalling
Not sly, you're blatant
You're so late, not late, you're latent

The proof is on the audio tape
Caught your friend running down the fire escape
I go Bangkok to Antioch
Elevator music like jazz or jazz-rock
Not wallow, dip like a swallow
Scary chariot like Apollo

No fence, no filter
Blow off the broad, yet jump just jilt her
Not plump, she's plumpish
Frumpish, bumpish, lumpish, jumpish
Space filler, shirt shiller
Bomb the seas and the whole flotilla

He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands

The tribulations and the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands

You know he did it with the whole, whole
World, world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole, whole
World, world in his hands

He got the whole world in his hands
You know he does
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
He's got the whole world in his hands
