Tapping his foot to his favorite song in the back of the club where he belongs
In the back of his mind where that came from
He writes in the journal of his mind to distract him from all the times
Where he thought he failed or fell behind

Oh well! Look at 3PO, he shimmers on the dance floor
So well! I wish that I could be like him
Oh well! I’m too afraid to try and take the microphone
Oh well! I’ll just blink in the back of the raptor disco

Yesterday was the worst day, today he’s afraid it could be the same
Heard tomorrow it might rain
He sweats and he shakes when his boss screams,
his colleagues laugh and slap their knees
Confidence is what he needs


His pretty wife throws bird feed, the greedy grackles eat the seed
His dog yelps and whines and pleads
She looks at him as he turns his head to the pachysandra by the shed
The tennis ball is lost again

Oh well! You know I don’t mean to neglect you
Oh well! You know there’s still joy in my heart
Oh well! You know my eyes just get so sensitive
Oh well! I think about myself too much

Oh well! And in the times when I am paralyzed
Oh well! I’m trusting you to break the roof
Oh well! Place me on a mat when I’m insane
Oh well! You lower me, I’ll lower you

Oh well! Look at 3PO, he shimmers on the dance floor
So well! Maybe we’ll be friends with him
Oh well! And someday we can try and take the microphone
Oh well! And we can laugh in the back of the raptor disco
