quiz night at looky lou’s lyrics – john k. samson

[chorus 1]
quiz night at looky lou’s
quiz night at looky lou’s
quiz night at looky lou’s
i trust you will know what to do

[verse 1]
i can’t recall what we were waiting in line for
when the first plane fell a block away
and the next even closer
m-ssive thumps and flames
and then i woke up with a calico cat on my chest
in the bas-m-nt of a bar in sudbury
i sang to it calmly with my mind and it obeyed my commands
slunk off to rub itself against the leg of a broken terminator 2 pinball machine
i dream of the line and the falling planes
once or twice a week these days
usually after a particularly challenging quiz night
which, for a reasonable fee and a place to sleep
i administer in bars and lounges across the land
[chorus 2]
quiz night at looky lou’s
quiz night at looky lou’s
when we meet and i sing you this song with my mind
you will know what you need to do

[verse 2]
the quiz i have developed is an elaborately coded message
a quiz within a quiz
answerable only by alpha adepts and mind singers
each night i am certain they will reveal themselves to me
each night i am disappointed
i must admit i am getting older
and years of folding my legs into a greyhound seat every day
is beginning to dull my powers
which were once considerable
and are now wasted instructing cats
or warding off the body odor of my fellow p-ssengers
so when i saw you standing in line in the dream
i felt joyful and certain
when we finally meet tonight at looky lou’s sports tavern in sioux lookout
i will sing you the following song with my mind
and hand you all my quiz materials
i trust you will know what to do

[chorus 3]
quiz night at looky lou’s
quiz night at looky lou’s
when we meet and i sing you this song with my mind
you will know what you need to do
quiz night at looky lou’s
quiz night at looky lou’s
quiz night at looky lou’s
i trust you will know what to do
