Earthquake

Album: The Hogyssey (2001)
  • It's funny how we think that things are one way
    But they will always be that way somehow
    Back when I was a boy I knew that someday
    I'll learn my lesson and we'll have learned it now

    People are crazy
    And I know why
    Keeping it on if we'll only try
    Don't wait for heaven's sake
    For the earthquake

    It's funny how we leave the blues behind you
    You can take them with you when you go
    Laughing like a child without a reason
    And I shout for the greatest show on Earth

    People are crazy
    And I know why
    Keeping it on if we'll only try
    Don't wait for heaven's sake
    For the earthquake

    The earthquake, quake, quake

    Beans on toast!
    Beans on toast!
