lyrics

My name…
is Lee Mole
I don’t
see very well at all
In my own world
deep underground
I keep myself all to myself
Don’t make a sound

I don’t see why
if you can’t talk
as an animal
then you’re destined
to die
why why why why why (echo)

My name…
is Lee Mole
I don’t
see very well at all
I live
In a hole
If I go out
and see the sun
my eyes hurt bad
then I might fall fall fall fall (tape echo echo echo)

Hello
means goodbye
Hello
means goodbye
Hello
means goodbye
Hello
means goodbye

I like cakes
and I like tea
I tell ya
there’s nothing wrong with me
I don’t like pubs
I don’t like shops
I don’t go out much
Like things when they stop

Put on my glasses
put on my hat
put on my raincoat
they call it a mac
the rain runs off
and goes deep down into to the ground
I like the drip drip drip drip drip dripping droppin sound

And an animal (like me)
has got to ask why
if you can’t talk
then you’re destined to die
I just don’t see
why why why

And the fur
that covers up my face
marks me out
from the human race
I get my things
and scurry back
to a hole in the ground
that I reach in through a crack

My name …
Is Lee Mole
I collect things
I collect them all
I have bags,
and I have boxes
and the things that I don’t need
I share with the foxes

and it’s dark down there (but I like it)
it’s dark down there (but I fuckin like it)
and it’s dark down there (but I like it)
it’s dark down there (but I fuckin like it)

it’s dark down there
but I’m safe don’t care
I’m a creature
and I need to live
out of fresh air

I’m a creature of habit
that’s got nothing to give
but I still deserve…
I still deserve to live

And I dig
I might be under you now
and I dig
I might be under your town
I dig
I’m a tunneller true
I dig, and I got roots hanging down to you

Turn right
at the mysterious pipe
turn left
past the treasure chest
near home, by the dinosaur bone
at leisure on my buried treasure

I might live deep underground
but I don’t take it lying down
I might live deep underground
but I don’t take it lying down
no

I’m clean
I’m serene
not part of the sewer scene
don’t get angry
don’t get mean
not lost the lust for life
still keen
