Elephant Eye




You got a hole in the tire
Lookin for air
You got an elephant eye
don't ask me what I mean by that

I've had it, you've had it
Fate took it away from us
You see them take her gem
Fate took it away from her

You brought it back from Peru
You stole it from a church
It was really from Spain
Shipped in 1718

Well I was captain of something
Yeah I remember the lifetime well
At least I used to recall
Ah hell, maybe I just dreamt it all

I've had it, you've had it
Fate took it away from us
You see them take that gem
Fate took it away from her

When you wore it in France
You fell through the roof of the flat
And we wired the tree
And we all had a drink at the bar

When you were reading something
All the profits and plots on the paper
And it snowed in July
When we were all sure that it's no one's bid for

I've had it, you've had it
Fate took it away from us
You see them take that gem
Fate took it away from her
