  • There was no crucifixion
    Just lies to steal your mind
    Now I know that you're thinking
    That I'm running out of time

    Sister musta missed you
    I don't wanna steal your shine
    There's method to my madness, yes, there's reason to my rhyme

    It's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high

    So, soul-sucking vampire
    How you love to steal the vibe
    All wrapped up in your addiction
    So we'll have to say bye-bye

    It's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high

    Oh, you're so hip
    This hour, on our trip
    Oh, you're so hip
    This hour, on our trip

    It's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high

    Is this your own reflection, you keep it in a safe
    Here's a secret combination, to navel-gaze all day

    It's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high

    You say you love John Lennon, you don't want the world as one
    By all means necessary, yes I have to sing my song

    It's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high

    Oh, you're so hip
    This hour, on our trip
    Oh, you're so hip
    This hour, on our trip

    It's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing I stay so high

    It's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high

    It's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing I say, bye-bye
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing so I stay so high

    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing
    It's a beautiful thing
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing
    It's a beautiful thing
    Hear me, it's a beautiful thing Writer/s: JOHN SQUIRE, IAN BROWN, GARY MOUNTFIELD, ALAN WREN
