He only sings when he's sad
But he's sad all the time, so he sings the whole night through
Yeah, he sings in the day-time, too

He only dreams when he's sad
And he's sad all the time, so he dreams the whole night through
Yeah, he dreams in the day-time, too

There may be mermaids under the water
There may even be a man in the moon
But Vincent, time is running out
You better get yourself together soon

Out of Buffalo, the man
Below the belt, he swung, and then after the bell has rung
Another cheap shot, here it comes

Another cheap shot, here it comes

He only laughs when he's sad
And he's sad all the time, so he laughs the whole night through
Yeah, he laughs in the daytime, too

There may be mermaids under the water
There may even be a man in the moon
But Vincent, time is running out
I hope you get yourself together soon

I hope you get yourself together soon
