The Lonesome Friends of Science


C The lonesome friends of science say F The world will end most any day C Well, if it doesn't, that's okay G 'Cause I don't live here anyway C I live down deep inside my head F Well, long ago I made my bed C I get my mail in Tennessee G My wife, my dog and my family C Uh-huh

Poor ol' planet Pluto now
He never stood a chance no how
When he got uninvited to
The interplanetary dance
Once a mighty planet there
Now just an ordinary star
Hanging out in Hollywood
In some ol' funky sushi bar

The lonesome friends of science say
The world will end most any day
Well, if it doesn't, that's okay
'Cause I don't live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog, my kids and me
Uh-huh

The Vulcan lives in Birmingham
Sometimes he just don't give a damn
His head is full of bumblebees
His pride hangs down below his knees
Venus left him long ago
For a guy named Mars from Idaho
The Vulcan sent a wedding gift
Three-legged stool and a wheelchair lift
Uh-huh

The lonesome friends of science say
This world will end most any day
Well, if it doesn't, that's okay
'Cause I don't live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog, my kids and me

      C    Am
Uh-huh, uh-huh
      C    Am
Uh-huh, uh-huh
      C
Uh-huh

Those bastards in their white lab coats
Who experiment with mountain goats
Should leave the Universe alone
It's not their business, not their home
I go to sleep and it never rains
My dog predicts a hurricane
She just smell a storm a mile away
That's all the news we have today
Uh-huh

The lonesome friends of science say
This world will end most any day
Well, if it doesn't, that's okay
'Cause I don't live here anyway
I live down deep inside my head
Well, long ago I made my bed
I get my mail in Tennessee
My wife, my dog, my kids and me
Uh-huh, uh-huh
Uh-huh, uh-huh
Uh-huh
