Lyrics

Always looking for attention

Always needs to be mentioned Who does she think she should be?

The shrill cry through darkening air Doesn't she know he's Had such a busy day?

Tell her...shh Somebody tell her...shh

No way, no way There's no movement, no Hooray

It was only a test But she swam too far against the tide She deserves all she gets

The sky became mad with stars As an out-stretched arm slowly disappears

Hooray Oh, hooray No, there's no movement, no Hooray, hooray

Please don't worry there'll be no fuss She was...nobody's nothing

When he awoke the sea was calm And another day passes like a dream

There's no, no way
