Mad, mad, mad staring eyes It’s not your tongue that darts like a snake not your knees that grumble and creak not your knuckles that drag on the ground It’s not your voice that croaks like a toad Not your arms that dangle like threads Not your elbows filed to a point What I like about you is your Mad, mad, mad staring eyes It’s not your ears that move up and down Not your nose that runs like a stream Not your toes that point different ways It’s not your smell that scares the dog Not your hair that looks like weeds Not your nails that scrape down the wall What I like about you is your Mad, mad, mad staring eyes
Rise up now my people you know the time has come Rise up now my people time to heed the call Rise up now my people Come to the festival Forward to the future Leave the past behind Open up your curtains Open up your minds Rise up now my people Our time has just begun
Belgium after dark Hannah Maes!
