On the ferris wheel. Looking out on coney island. Under more stars than. There are prostitues in thailand. Our hair in the air. Our lips blue from cotton candy. When we kiss it feels. Like a flying saucer landing. And I can't sleep. Cause you got strange powers. Your in my dreams. Strange powers. In Las Vegas where the electric bills are straggring. The decor hog wild. And the etertainment saccharin. What a golden age, what a time of right and reason. The consumers king and unhappyness is treason. And I can't sleep. Cause you got strange powers. Your in my dreams. Strange powers. The sun falls down like money. The moon pours down like mercury. The stars fall down like money. And you come back to me. Strange powers.

Corrected version:

Strange Powers

On the ferris wheel
Looking out on Coney island
Under more stars than
There are prostitutes in Thailand
Our hair in the air
Our lips blue from cotton candy
When we kiss it feels
Like a flying saucer landing

And I can't sleep
Cause you got strange powers
You're in my dreams
Strange powers

In Las Vegas where
The electric bills are staggering
The decor hog wild
And the entertainment saccharine
What a golden age
What a time of right and reason
The consumers king
And unhappiness is treason

And I can't sleep
Cause you got strange powers
You're in my dreams
Strange powers

The sun pours down like money
The moon runs down like mercury
The stars fall down like money
And you come down to me

And I can't sleep
Cause you got strange powers
You're in my dreams
Strange powers

And I can't sleep
Cause you got strange powers
You're in my dreams
Strange powers
