Leppo and the Jooves
Crabwise Over the Andalusian extensions of the life and loves of Noddy Through the windows of disgust The teeth of Leppo and his managers awry No time to cry Sunrise A lamp of no position in the loss of all existence To the vultures without bibles and The preachers without leaves that pass it by No time to sigh All them pretty women Planted in a row You see them in the newspapers But you can't have 'em, no! No no no no no no no no! Oh ho ho! They get Lep-Lep-Leppo and the J-J-J-J-J-Jooves They jump on anything that m-m-m-m-m-moves On taxis, coffin-lids, Americans, piano-heads and roofs Leppo Likewise A farmer and his diary might conspire to freeze a widow So I went to rob the lizard Of his skin, his coat, his money and his earth All that he's worth Someday You realize that everything you do or see or think of If it interferes with nothing Might as well dissolve in arrows or in tears Nobody hears All them famous people Washed off in the rain Leave not even a puddle, baby All you leave is your name Huh-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Your name! I got a name, baby It's Lep-Lep-Leppo and the J-J-J-J-J-Jooves Oh ho ho! They jump on anything that m-m-m-m-m-moves Ah ha ha! Ah ha ha. On taxis, coffin-lids, Americans, piano-heads and roofs Leppo Listen And you can hear the dripping of the clocks, the reaping of the sun The vengeance of the hammer and The squeamish tight explosion of the liar Burn in the fire Gazing With unforeseeing eyes into the smoke, the lungs of war And all the endless formulations of unusable beginnings that Have grown from hungry rivers into trees Nobody sees All them hungry people They don't look so good But I don't let it bother you I don't see why it should No no no no no no! Oh oh ho Oh ho ho Lep-Lep-Leppo and the J-J-J-J-J-Jooves They jump on anything that m-m-m-m-m-moves On taxis, coffin-lids, Americans, piano-heads and roofs Leppo
