Robyn Hitchcock — The Lizard lyrics

You wear the lizard's shoes and afterwards you get confused
You wear the lizard's coat and afterwards you fail to float
You take the lizard's path but look who's lying in the bath
You wear the lizard's skin no man can be a god and win at all
You take the lizard's mask but look who's lying in the cask
And the clocks have stopped you'll find out what the lizard
Dropped
You know the lizard's won but you can't work out how it's done
The lizard is your friend and will be to the very end of time
You lie beneath the stars the lizard knows how high they are
The stars are out of reach the lizard lingers on a beach
The stars are out of date the lizard had them on a plate
You vomit in the she'd the lizard got there first he's dead now
