  • I got out of bed today
    Swear to God I couldn't see my face
    I got out of bed today staring at a ghost
    Who forgot to float away
    Didn't have all that much to say
    Wouldn't even tell me his own name
    And where'd my body go

    Where oh where'd my body go?
    Africa or Mexico?
    Where or where'd my body go?
    And where'd my body go?

    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Seen my ghost, seen my ghost
    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Staring at the ground
    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Seen my ghost, seen my ghost
    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Sick of those goddamn clouds

    Are you some kind of medicine man
    Cut the demons out of my head
    You can't kill something that's already dead
    So leave my soul alone
    I don't need no surgery
    Take those knives away from me
    Just wanna die in my own body
    A ghost just needs a home

    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Seen my ghost, seen my ghost
    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Staring at the ground
    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Seen my ghost, seen my ghost
    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Sick of those goddamn clouds

    Na na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na na

    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Seen my ghost, seen my ghost
    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Staring at the ground
    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Seen my ghost, seen my ghost
    Oh, have you seen my ghost?
    Sick of those goddamn clouds

    Na na na na na na na
