When the Darkness proves to be the source of Light
when all you thought was wrong turns out to be right
when the pacifists get up and start to fight
your head hurts.

When your going up starts coming down
and each warm smile turns to a frown
and the royal fam'ly give away their crowns
your head hurts.

You gone so far East that you're in the West
and what you thought was worst turned out to be best.
You kept going North till it became South
and the town and the country mouse bought a house
beneath the sea.

When the radio stops playing any sound
and balls are square and cubes are round
then the only truth you can have found
is your head hurts.

When the more you drink the more you're sober
and cars go under bridges while boats go over
and Calais' in England and France is in Dover
your head hurts

You gone so far East that you're in the West
and what you thought was worst turned out to be best.
You kept going North till it became South
and the town and the country mouse bought a house
beneath the sea.

And your head is aching with a mental pain
cos this upside down world's driving you insane
and you're struggling to recall your name
cos your head hurts.

Your head is hurting both day and night
and there's no appreciable end in sight
and red is blue while pink is white
your head hurts.

You gone so far East that you're in the West
and what you thought was worst turned out to be best.
You kept going North till it became South
and the town and the country mouse bought a house
beneath the sea.

Dr Seus has taken over the world
and logic has been over-hurled
and the banners of chaos are unfurled
your head hurts

there's nothing now that you can do
don't try to understand what's hap'ning to you
to ride the storm, all you can hold on to
is your head hurts.

Stop going east and move back west
keep your mind open as to what's best
Stop heading north and try going south
and if all else fails move in with the mice
beneath the sea.
