Circles Around the Sun

Album: Circles Around the Sun (2012)
  • When he was born, the doc said "What's this?"
    He's much too small, it's like he's weightless
    When he turned six, they ran some tests
    They said, "It's for science, it's patriotic."

    "Ah let's send him where no one else has gone
    And after all he cannot speak or walk
    Let's send him at the moon, do circles round the Sun."

    When he was twelve, the time had come then
    And with his eyes, he said he loved them
    Then came the suits, then came the government
    She stood and cried, she could not keep him

    "Ah let's send him where no one else has gone
    And after all he cannot speak or walk
    Let's send him at the moon, do circles round the Sun."

    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Oh, oh, oh
    Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho
    Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
    Oh, oh, oh
    Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

    Then he came back, yeah he came back
    He came back, a smile as big as the whole world
    The doctors were shocked by his vital signs
    She said, "Would you like to go home now?"

    "Ah let's send him where no one else has gone
    And after all he cannot speak or walk
    Let's send him at the moon, do circles around the Sun." Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
