When I was young I saw a crazy cow
and I wanted to be near it
and i wanted to be part of it

When I was young I was lying on my back
when I felt the touch of black death
stab me like a bayonet

Life is a mystery
and life is Versailles
Life is a cold wind
blowing through a rabbi's head
and I'm just killing time

When I grew up I wandered wasted grounds
when a possum grabbed my sleeve
and we stole the apples from the tree

When I grew up I saw Francis in the frame
His eyes were full of wonder
eyes that I will never claim

Life is a mystery
and life is Versailles
Life is a cold wind
blowing through a rabbi's head
and I'm just killing time

Life is a corny joke
and time is a lie
I'll tell myself a fairytale
until the day I die
