It's Been A Long Time

Pandora: It’s Been A Long Time For Me
 
Prometheus:
The Iron Pharaoh In His Lighthouse Dances
While Tchaikovsky Disappears
 
The Sugar Plum Pharaohs Dance
The Sugar Plum Pharaohs Dance
Like The Iron Pharaoh In His Lighthouse
The Sugar Plum Pharaohs Dance
 
Pandora: It’s Been A Long Time For Me
 
Prometheus:
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
I ‘HASHTAGGED’ HALF PAST 10
I RECOMMEND
WE BEGIN
 
RUNNING AROUND LIKE A SQUIRREL
IN A TREEHOUSE WORLD
CHASING PEARLS
LIKE MARIE ANTOINETTE
I JUDGE MY CAKE
BY THE PIECE I GET
I DON’T WANT TO LOSE MY HEAD
I WANNA LOSE MY MIND INSTEAD
 
Pandora:
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
I’M FEELING LIKE A CAT IN THE RAIN
I’M PRETTY WET BUT I CAN’T COMPLAIN
 
I’M SITTING ON TOP OF A ‘MEOW’
MAKE ME PURR &
THINK OF ME NOW
JUST SCRATCH ME BEHIND MY EAR
IF YOU WANT ME TO COME
MORE NEAR
THE SUGAR PLUM PHARAOHS DANCE
WHILE TCHAIKOVSKY DISAPPEARS
 
Prometheus:
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
IF I MET YOU ON NOAH’S ARK
I’D BE THE ANGEL SINGING IN THE DARK
 
BABY YOU CAN ROCK MY BOAT
BEFORE I FLOAT DOWNSTREAM
DON’T GIVE ME TOO LONG A CHAIN
OR TOO SHORT A LEASH AGAIN
I’M FEELING LIKE A LOADED GUN
(OR CUPID’S ARROW)
YOU CAN ROLL ME LIKE A BARREL
 
Pandora:
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
ORANGUTANS IN TANGERINE
MAKE NO SENSE BUT THEY MAKE A SCENE !
 
CATCH A TIGER BY THE TOE
PINCH ITS NIPPLE & LET IT GO
CATCH A DRAGON BY THE TAIL/TALE
& IF YOU BAG IT
YOU’LL HAVE TO DRAG IT
THE SUGAR PLUM PHARAOHS DANCE
FROM CHASING ALL THE MAGIC
 
Prometheus & Pandora:
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
IT JUST TAKES A MINUTE OR 2
BEFORE
YOU CAN BE ME &
I CAN BE YOU
 
IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES
PULL MY FINGERS & LEAVE MY THUMBS
IF JONI CALLS
I DON’T CARE
UNLESS THELONIOUS MONK
IS THERE
YOU’RE A ‘PRINCESS’ IN (PARENTHESIS)
NOW BABY PULL MY HAIR IF YOU PLEASE !
 
Pandora & Prometheus:
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME FOR ME
SO GO SLOW & TAKE IT EASY
YOU GIVE ME ALGORITHM & BLUES
BUT I’M NOT MAD AT YOU
I’M MADAGASCAR !
 
FROM ALGEBRA TO AL JARREAU
FROM AL GREEN TO THE ALAMO
(& AL CAPONE)
LIKE MARIE ANTOINETTE
I JUDGE MY CAKE
BY THE PIECE I GET
I DON’T WANT TO LOSE MY HEAD
I WANNA LOSE MY MIND INSTEAD !
 
Prometheus & Pandora:
I Don’t Want To Lose My Head
I Wanna Lose My Mind Instead
It’s Been A Long Time For Me
The Sugar Plum Pharaohs Dance
The Sugar Plum Pharaohs Dance
Like The Iron Pharaoh In His Lighthouse
The Sugar Plum Pharaohs Dance
(While Tchaikovsky Disappears) !
 
I May Not Be Van Halen
But If You Meet Me In The Van
We Can Be ‘InHalen’ Something.
 
Pandora:
(English Translation)
But What Are You Saying Again
& Going On About ?
Why Not Just Shut Up
& Kiss Me ?
