lyrics

See the oyster
See the pearl
Swallow the oyster
Swallow the pearl
Wait for an hour
For the pearl
To come back out again
Into the world

My mamamamamamamama’s waiting up for me
My mamamamamamamama’s waiting up for me

I learn the hard way
I make a scene
From large intestine
To the spleen
I learn the hard way
I make a wine
From the water
Before the swine

My mamamamamamamama’s waiting up for me
My mamamamamamamama’s waiting up for me

On their bicycles
In single file
Riding up the
Miracle mile
Evolution
Speed of sound
But their bicycles
Are slowing down
Transmutation
Shed the skin
Break the shell that
The pearl is in
Eat the oyster
Grab the pearl
Give it to mother
She take the pearl

My mamamamamamamama’s waiting up for me
My mamamamamamamama’s waiting up for me
