like Houdini in the river with a lock he couldn't see

when you think you hit the bottom then you better find the key

like Custer at the Horn when he turned around and said

"when you think you fin'lly got 'em, you're just as good as dead"



it's a time warp puttin' wrinkles in your skin

it's a rockabilly music make you silly in the end

it's a time warp puttin' circles on your eyes

it's a rockabilly music that's a blessing in disguise



like Ponce de Leon speakin' Spanish in the swamp

"I was lookin' for a fountain, but it's water that I want"

like Pike at the top and ev'ry other freak

"I was lookin' for a mountain, I took a little peak"



it's a time warp puttin' wrinkles in your skin

it's a rockabilly music make you silly in the end

it's a time warp puttin' circles on your eyes

it's a rockabilly music that's a blessing in disguise

(ELECTRIC PIANO SOLO)
(ELECTRIC GUITAR SOLO)



like Buddah at the sermon when he didn't say a word

if you think you hear a flower, it's a flower that you heard

like da Vinci on the roof with his arm in a sling,

"A man's got the power, but a bird's got the wing"



it's a time warp puttin' wrinkles in your skin

it's a rockabilly music make you silly in the end

it's a time warp puttin' circles on your eyes

it's a rockabilly music that's a blessing in disguise



like Vincent Van Gogh when he chopped off his ear,

"I'd like to give her twenty, but I still gotta hear"

like Crockett at the wall lookin' back to Tennessee,

"the livin' costs you plenty, but the dyin's still for free"



it's a time warp puttin' wrinkles in your skin

it's a rockabilly music make you silly in the end

it's a time warp puttin' circles on your eyes

it's a rockabilly music that's a blessing in disguise

(Kazoo Solo w/ whistles, snorts, & ?)
