Reached back for the bottle
And rubbed against the lamp
Genie came out smiling
Like some Eastern tramp

He said hey boy what's happening
What is going on
You can have three wishes
If you don't take too long

I said well
I wish they were all happy in the Lebanon
Wish somebody'd help me write this song
I wish when I was young

My old man had not been gone
Genie said consider it done
There's something in the air
And you don't know what it is

You see someone through the window
Who you've just learned to miss
And the road leads on to glory but
You've used up your last wish

Your last wish
And you want her to come home
Genie said I'm sorry
But that's the way it goes

Where the hell's the lamp sucker
It's time for me to go
Bye
There's something in the air

And you don't know what it is
You see someone through the window
Who you've just learned to miss
And the road leads on to glory but

You've used up your last wish
Your last wish
And you want her to come home
