Well I know who you are, baby. I've seen you go into that meditative state. You're the snake charmer, baby.
And you're also the snake. You're a closed circuit, baby. You've got the answers in the palms of your hands. Well I saw a blind Judge And he said: I know who you are And I said: Who? And he said: You're a closed circuit, baby. He said: The world is divided into two kinds of things. There's luck, and there's the law. There's a knock on wood that says: IT MIGHT. And there's the long arm of the law that says: IT'S RIGHT. And it's a tricky balancing act between the two because both are equally true. 'Cause might makes right And anything could happen. Che sarà sarà. Am I right? Who? Do. Who? do. Who do you love? Well I saw a couple of hula dancers just hula-ing down the street. And they said: Well I wonder which way the tide is gonna roll tonight? And I said: Hey hold up hula dancers! You know the tide's gonna roll out And then it's gonna roll right back in again. 'Cause it's a closed circuit, baby. We got rules for that kind of thing. And you know the moon is so bright tonight. Who? Do. Who? Do. And don't think I haven't seen all those blind A-rabs around. I've seen 'em around. And I've watched them charm that oil right out of the ground. Long black streams of that dark electric light. And they said: One day the sun went down and it went way down, into the ground. And three thousand years go by and we pump it right back up again. 'Cause it's a closed circuit, baby. We can change the dark into the light and vice versa. Well I know who you are, baby. I've watched you count yourself to sleep. You're the shepherd, baby. And you're also one, two, three hundred sheep. I've watched you fall asleep. Well I was up real late last night. Must have just dropped off to sleep. 'Cause I saw you were crying, baby. You were crying in your sleep. You're the snake charmer, baby. And you're also a very long snake. You're a closed circuit, baby. You've got the answers in the palms of your hands.
