I want you to know
He's not coming back
Look into my eyes
I'm not coming back

So knives out
Catch the mouse
Don't look down
Shove it in your mouth

If you'd been a dog
They would've drowned you at birth
Look into my eyes
It's the only way you'll know I'm telling the truth

So knives out
Cook him up
Squash his head
Put him in the pot

I want you to know
He's not coming back
He's bloated and frozen
Still, there's no point in letting it go to waste

So knives out
Catch the mouse
Squash his head
Put him in the pot

YORKE, THOMAS EDWARD/GREENWOOD, JONATHAN RICHARD GUY/O'BRIEN, EDWARD JOHN/SELWAY, PHILIP JAMES/GREENWOOD, COLIN CHARLES
