Red Box

Why don’t you look at the price I’m pay­ing
Walk in, take a look inside
I’ve moved back the tables and the chairs to the wall
The valu­able thing I’ve had to hide

Open up the red box
Come on open it up
Open up the red box
Come on open it up

Peer in, look­ing for that crash­er again
You ruined Terry’s party last night
An over­weight greasy little man with a mouth
That opens more than now and again

Open up the red box
Come on open it up
Open up the red box
Come on open it up

Some­thing good must have happened to you
If you would let it hap­pen to you
If you could let it hap­pen to you
Some­thing good would have happened

Lopez I hate you for the state you’re in
Lopez your hair it washes out, it washes in
You ropey little fat boy Lopez
Come on get lost

Open up the red box
Come on open it up
Open up the red box
Come on open it up

Some­thing good must have happened to you
If you would let it hap­pen to you
If you could let it hap­pen to you
Some­thing good would have happened

I’m out of my head
