Look up on the wall
There on the floor
Under the pillow
Behind the door
There's a crack in the mirror
Somewhere there's a hole in a window pane
Now do you think I'm to blame?
Tell me do you think I'm to blame?

(When they do it)
You're never there
(When they show it)
You stop and stare
(Abacab)
He's in anywhere
(Abacab)

If you're wrappin'
Up the world
'Cause you've taken
Someone else's girl
Oh when they turn on the pillow
Even when they answer the telephone
Don't you think that by now?
Tell me, don't you think that by now?

(When they do it)
You're never there
(When they show it)
You stop and stare
(Abacab)
He's in anywhere
(Abacab)
Doesn't really care

Mm mm era ara ra ra era
Mm mm era e-e-era
Mm mm era ara ra ra era
Mm mm era aa aa aa aa
You want it, you got it
You gotta go
You want it, you got it
Now you know

It's an illusion
It's a game
Or reflection
Of someone else's name
When you wake in the morning
Wake and find you're covered in cellophane
Well, there's a hole in there somewhere
Yeah, there's a hole in there somewhere
Baby, there's a hole in there somewhere
Now there's a hole in there somewhere

(When they do it)
You're never there
(When they show it)
You stop and stare
(Abacab)
He's in anywhere
(Abacab)
