Kicking stones on an alter grove
Feeling dead enchanted and all alone
When out of the head popped a mind I'd grown
On a giant toad stool sat a teeny tiny gnome

Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut
Duh Duh Duh
Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut
Duh Duh Duh

He was all involved in a game of solitare
Said hello with a smile
Just like I wasn't there
I kicked the dirt somemore
He said "Please don't start a fight."
Found the church key in his pocket
He opened up his pipe

Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut
Duh Duh Duh
Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut
Duh Duh Duh

He blew himself some circles around his fingers and his beard
And from the pipe came magic music like I never heard

[instrumental]

Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut
Duh Duh Duh
Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut
Duh Duh Duh

As the notes came floatin' in
I picked up my ears
I walked into a drive-in
Hadn't felt so starved in years
A rabbit waited, took the alter
And quickly disappeared
He said, "The party's over,
please come back in a thousand years."

Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut Duh Dut
Duh Duh Duh
