Return to Oz
Scissor Sisters

Once there was a man who had a little too much time on his hands
He never stopped to think that he was getting older
When his night came to an end
he tried to grasp for his last friend
and pretend that he could wish himself
health on a four-leaf, clover

CHORUS : He said is this the return to oz the grass is
dead the gold is brown and the sky has claws
There's a wind-up man walking round and round what
once was emerald City's, now a crystal town

It's three o'clock in the morning you get a phone call from the
Queen with a hundred heads she says that they're all dead
she tried the last one on it couldn't speak fell off and
now she just wanders the halls thinking nothing
thinking nothing at all

CHORUS + pont

The wheelies are cutting pavement
and the skeksis at the rave meant to hide
deep inside their sunken faces and their wild rolling eyes
but their callous words reveal
that they can no longer feel
love or sex appeal
the patchwork girl has come to cinch the deal

CHORUS : To return to Oz,
we fled the world with smiles and clenching jaws
Please help me friend from coming down
I've lost my place and now it can't be found + CHORUS + coda
