Happy Phantom

and if i die today
i’ll be the HAPPY phantom
and i’ll go chasin’
the nuns out in the yard
and i’ll run naked
through the streets without my mask on
and i will never need
umbrellas in the rain
i’ll wake up in
strawberry fields every day
and the atrocities of school
i can forgive
the HAPPY phantom
has no right to bitch

oo who the time is getting closer
oo who time to be a ghost
oo who every day we’re getting closer
the sun is getting dim
will we pay for who we been

so if i die today
i’ll be the HAPPY phantom
and i’ll go wearin’
my NAUGHTIES like a jewel
they’ll be my ticket
to the universal opera
there’s judy garland
taking buddha by the hand
and then these seven little men
get up to dance
they say confucius
does his crossword with a pen
i’m still the angel
to a girl who hates to SIN

oo who the time is getting closer
oo who time to be a ghost
oo who every day we’re getting closer
the sun is getting dim
will i pay for who i been

or will i see you dear
and wish i could come back
you found a girl
that you could TRULY love again
will you still call for me
when she falls asleep
or do we soon forget the things
we cannot see

oo who the time is getting closer
oo who time to be a ghost
oo who every day we’re getting closer
the sun is getting dim
will i pay for who i been

and if i die today
and if i die today
and if i die today
chasin’ the nuns out in the yard
