Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

Isambard Kingdon Brunel
Was a man of iron
Who could build you a bridge very very well
But he only did it to impress
It’s a little known fact
A beautiful girl in a lilac dress
And he said

I wanna sing the body electric
Yeah yeah yeah
Exchange the iron for a rose

But wisdom is like buried treasure
And honey there is no map
You could dig for years but it’s all in vain
When you find yourself
Standing there with diamonds in a desert
When all really needed was some rain

I wanna sing the body electric
Yeah yeah yeah
Exchange the trouble for a rose
Oh my child
Happiness comes and goes
Pursued by slings and then arrows
But I guess I’m gonna love you anyway

I’m stuck in a darkened room
And I wonder and I too late or am I too soon
Another day in a another town
Am I busy getting lost or baby busy getting found
If I take your hand will you take me home

Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

But without you my life is lighter now
But somehow feels a little less deep
And I wonder
Standing on the bridge
I look and it’s so far down
How love ever get built so tall
How did love ever ever get built so high

I wanna sing the body electric
Yeah yeah yeah
Exchange the trouble for a rose
Oh my child
Happiness comes and goes
Pursued by slings and then arrows
But I guess I’m gonna love you anyway

And I’m stuck in a darkened room
And I wonder and I too late or am I too soon
Another day in a another town
Am I busy getting lost or baby busy getting found
But if I take your hand will you take me home

Yeah yeah yeah
