lyrics

Oo la, oo la la, la
Oo la, oo la la, la
Oo la, oo la la, la
Oo la, oo la la, la

Einstein had a lover
Lived far from one another
Wrote each other every other week
She asked what will we do
When this physics thing is through
He said my dear don't you worry

I'll write you songs in an open key
The notes will ring out into eternity
They'll last much longer than you and me
You'll see

Major Tom has the blues
His ship is set to cruise
Far beyond the realm of what we know

By radio transmission
He'll relay all his wishin
To his wife before he dies alone and cold

Broadcast into space
His G chords interlace
With cosmic dust and bursting supernovae
Bursting supernovae

Oh I'll write you songs in an open key
The notes will ring out into eternity
They'll last much longer than you and me
You'll see

Hillary said to Bill
I just cannot get my fill
I woman like this has a lot of needs
Bill said what can I do
To satisfy you
Make sure we go down in history!

Well I think I'll write you songs in an open key
The notes will ring out into eternity
They'll last much longer than you and me
You'll see

My dear we're no different
From Pompeii or Atlantis
We'll suffocate or sink into the sea
Whatever the end
It's just around the bend
While I've got breath I'll use it all to sing

How I'll write you songs in an open key
The notes will ring out into eternity
They'll last much longer than you and me
You'll see

I'll write you songs in an open key
The notes will ring out into eternity
They'll last much longer than you and me
You'll see
