Eyeball Kid Lyrics

Well zenora bariella
And coriander pyle
They had sixteen children
In the usual style
They had a curio museum
And they had no guile
All they ever wanted
Was a show biz child
So on the 7th of dec. 1949
They got what
Theyd been wishing for
All of the time
He grew up in a trailer
By the time he was 9
He rolled off to join
The circus... telling fortunes
On the side

Hail hail, the Eyeball Kid

Well the first time I saw him
Was a saigon jail
Cost me 27 dollars
Just to go his bail
I said your name will
Be in lights...
And thats no doubt
But you got to have
A manager thats what
Its all about
People would point
People would stare
Ill always be here
To protect you and to
Cut down on the glare
I know you cant speak
I know you cant sign
So cry right here on
The dotted line

Hail hail, the Eyeball Kid

Well he was born with out a body
Not even a brow
I made the kid a promise
I made the kid a vow
Hes not conventionally handsome
Hell never be tall
He said all you got to do is
Book me into carnegie hall

Hail hail, the Eyeball Kid

Hes just a little bitty thing
Hes just a little guy
But women go crazy
For the big blue eye
They say how does he
Dream? how does he think
When he cant ever speak
And he cant ever blink?

I said hail hail, the Eyeball Kid
Hail hail, the Eyeball Kid

Give it up and throw me down
A couple of quic
Everybody wants to see
The Eyeball Kid

How dies he dream
How does he think
When he cant even speak
And he cant even blink
We are all lost in the
Wilderness were as
Blind as can be
He came down to teach us
How to really see

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

So give it up and throw
Me down a couple of quid
Everybody wants to see
The Eyeball Kid
Eyeball Kid
Eyeball Kid
