The cuckoo clockmaker

They’ll rearrange your molecules,
use tools you never saw before and
send you back to work.

Welcome to the magic store,
now you see it, now you don’t.

Won’t you sit right there for me
the service that we offer’s free,
would you like to look like me?
arrange that.

So the card you pick was thick and fat
the three of clubs is just another bat to beat
you with.

We may as well give in and take
the medicines we know are fake,
we can’t be cured
I’m assured that’s so
let’s go to
the magic show.
