I can see very well, there's a boat on the reef with a broken back
And I can see it very well
There's a joke and I know it very well 
It's one of those that I told you long ago, 
Take my word I'm a madman don't you know
Once a fool had a good part in the play
If it's so would I still be here today?
It's quite the cuter in a funny sort of way

They think it's very funny, everything I say

Get a load of him he's so insane 
Better get your coat dear it looks like rain

We'll come again next thursday afternoon 
The inlaws hope they'll see you very soon, 
But is it in your conscience that you're after
Another glimpse of the madman across the water

(instrumental)

I can see very well, there's a boat on the reef with a broken back
And I can see it very well
There's a joke and I know it very well 
It's one of those that I told you long ago, 
Take my word I'm a madman don't you know

The ground's a long way down, but I need more
Is the nightmare black or are the windows painted
Will they come again next week?
Can my mind really take it?

We'll come again next thursday afternoon 
The inlaws hope they'll see you very soon, 
But is it in your conscience that you're after
Another glimpse of the madman across the water

(instrumental, to fade)
