May I look into your eyes sir?
I see you're just like real one
May I look into your head sir?
I see you wish you were dead sir
Dead certain of what you know

May I look above the clouds sir
Clouds sir, or is that just for the birds?
May I play with your words sir?
Words sir, surprised you're not amazed

Oh spent all day lying on my back
Oh laa it's a real little thriller
Here at Malmsbury Villa
Oh spent all night standing on my head
It's a real little killer here at Malmsbury Villa

May I fall into the sea sir?
See sir see (sir see), see the circus is here sir
May I make up my face sir?
Just like a clown sir, surprised I look just like a girl
Now I see what you mean sir
You're mean sir, so mean sir, so meanwhile

Spent all day lying on my back
It's a real little thriller here at Malmsbury Villa
Spent all night standing on my head
It's a real little killer here at Malmsbury Villa

    This song is written about a house Tim Finn shared with other members of the band when they first formed Split Enz (Ends). My wife's great grandfather built the house and lived there for many years (Kohimarama Road in Kohimarama Auckland) - it was named after the town of Malmsbury where he grew up. It no longer exists.
