Randy Newman — Strange Things lyrics

I was on top of the world
It was right in my pocket
I was livin' the life
Things were just the way they should be
When from out of the sky like a bomb comes some little punk in a rocket
Now all of a sudden some strange things are happenin' to me

I had friends,
I had lots of friends
Now all my friends are gone
And I'm doin' the best I can to carry on

I had power (power)
I was respected (respect)
But not any more
And I've lost the love to the one whom I adored
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/randy-newman-strange-things-lyrics.html ]
Let me tell you about the strange things are happenin' to me
Strange things
Strange things are happenin' to me...
Ain't no doubt about it

You got someone you think you know well
It turns out a stranger
The minute you turn your back
You're in it all by yourself

They laugh at your jokes
You think you're doin' well
But you're in danger, boy
You end up alone, forgotten, way up on the shelf

Strange things are happenin' to me
Strange things
Strange things are happenin' to me
Ain't no doubt about it

Strange things are happenin' to me
Strange things
Strange things are happenin' to me

Strange things
Strange things
