The professor is building something extraordinary
From the first signs, well, I knew he would hide it from me
Clang, clang, rattle and buzz
There's a helicopter blade and a bit of a truck

He's got no more quality time to be going on adventures
Spending mornings on black keys
Using a weegie board or finding hidden places
That have never been sorta brave

Origami full of grace
The professor is mad and he's working a feverish pace
Diabolical, delicious things
Something is bad and it's something within me

Do you know? Do you know? What is he building in there?
Gotta know, gotta see, what is he building in there?
Gotta know, gotta be something destructively daring
Dastardly, it's got the best of me

The professor is building all kinds of devilish device
There's one part with a singular bit of delight
And bang, crash, glitter and bug
There's a phonographic needle and a stereo heart

He's got no plans to make an announcement
No preliminary sketches or advice to impart in me
One ounce of jealousy
Fifty seven gallons juvenile delinquency

Super supremacy, I've gotta find an answer
Gotta fashion a skeleton key
Diabolical, delicious deeds
Something is bad and it's shrouded of secrecy

Do you know? Do you know? What is he building in there?
Gotta know, gotta see, what is he building in there?
Gotta know, gotta be something destructively daring
Dastardly, it's got the best of me

There are really few dimensions
Three, which we call the three planes of space
And a fourth, time

The professor is building something extraordinary
Behind bars and a door he won't open for me
Kind words and a barrel of a gun will make him come to grips
Make him face up to what he has done

Do you know? Do you know? What is he building in there?
Gotta know, gotta see, what is he building in there?
Gotta know, gotta be something destructively daring
Dastardly, it's got the best of me

Do you know? Do you know? What is he building in there?
Gotta know, gotta see, what is he building in there?
Gotta know, gotta be something destructively daring
Dastardly, it's got the best of me
