She leaves work early
Ties a bow in her hair
She rides her bike
To a late anywhere
Where her friends have gathered
A captain starts to sing
He sings so loud and clear
It'll make your ears ring

She sings with him
Let out the sorrow she feels within
I stand beside her
Don't know nothing

There's lady chameleon
She makes what she wears
Tonight it's her mama's dress
Made of a million hairs
And a wooden handbag
Is all that she needs
To get to do beautiful
Unspeakable deeds

And she will exceed
Your most beloved and wildest dreams
Bu she's hooked up
It seems

To a singer
In a rock n' roll band
Who wears a cap
And got pockets with sand
He dreams of chameleons
To be famous someday
And to sing his songs
In new, mindblowing ways

Needless to say
Maybe he'l get there sooner than me
Stop trying
Feel free

My friends' in the corner
He drags me away
From infidelity and "Lay Lady Lay"
We never talk much
About how it feels
To be the fifth
Or the seventh wheel

About sex appeal
Of unanswered love and family needs
Growing older
Spreading seeds

She stands beside me
But then she is gone
Maybe she fears
That I am the one
And that I wil show her
There's something else
Something she craves
When all else fails

When love breaks loose
And tortures her every hour and day
Maybe that makes her
Flee away
