Oasis – Lyrics

How many times have you heard, how many times did you say
“I think I’m going crazy! you’re driving me out of my mind!”?
We know it’s just an expression, a silly little phrase
Not the doorbell, not a bird call
Koo koo

How do you drive someone crazy?
To where?
In what kind of car?
Maybe we find a road map
I’m sure it’s not very far
We know it’s not so serious
We take it all in fun
Answer the ding dong, do you play ping pong?
Could you?

Trying to get your attention
Did someone say earth’s calling you?
Don’t say it, don’t ever mention, you’re hearing more voices than two
Roasted or raw delicious!
Freeze dried or salted divine!
Was that a…
Are you a…
Are you?

Storms have rearranged the sand millions of years up til now
Crusaders on a never ending search die for a never ending thirst
What a fine perforformance, oasis!
Well worth the standing ovation
Not a mirage
Not camoflouge to you
