I could be singing forever
I guess you could say I'm in love
The universe is getting together
You know that I can't say it enough
You and your friends have a party

Remember the guy by the water
We seen walkin' 'round on the air
He went and learned for a quarter
He knew that you could see him there
You take your friends to the ocean
Walk on the sand if you can

Spiro stepped out on the door step
He spoke like he had something to say
He said, "I don't want to hear anybody."
I guess he's going to be that way

Even all the elephants hear you, Spiro
Would you believe it at last?
Nobody wants to be near you
The new world is coming that fast

They're beating on you in Chicago
They're picking you up on the coast
They're knocking you off in Ohio
They like sending you to war the most

When will you get it together?
Everybody in this land
Helping out your brothers and sisters
Everyone must understand
