Watch Me Go Lyrics

One day the monkey jumps aboard, one day the black dog
gets you
One Day the demons write your name in blood upon a
ledger
But see the sun is shining as I step down on the pike
So pretty in my uniform of anti-look-alike
And goodbye halls of academe, I never could respect you
And loved ones, I’ll say fare you well, I surely will
neglect you.

Watch Me Go
Into the wide blue yonder
Watch Me Go
Like a human cannonball
Watch Me Go
With a mighty peal of thunder
And I’ll keep shouting till they lay me low

If it wasn’t for Dalwhinnie and all his reckless crew
I never would have learned to shake my fist and
hullabaloo
If it wasn’t for the company I’d be talking to myself
Inside a padded 8 by 12, all on the National Health
And friends and kind relations, I’ll be writing very
soon
The next time that you see me I’ll be halfway to the
moon

Thank you dear Professor, for refocusing our eyes
And thank you Captain Sensible, so eloquent and wise
And Fotherington-Thomas, now you’re singing with the
choir
But you gave us beef when we had none, of wood and
string and wire
And for those who choose the twisty road, prefer it to
the straight
Let joy beat out old misery, as love will conquer hate
