John the Baptist

I'm John the Baptist
And this is my friend Salome.
And you can bet it's my head she wants,
And not my heart only.
If you see me smiling,
And you wonder why,
You can bet it's a private joke
Between her and I.

And it's alright,
(Everything is alright.)
Allright.
(Everything is alright.)

She dances for me
In the midnight moon.
And when I play for her,
She never sings too soon.
When my head's cut off
And I'm lying on a plate,
I'm going to grin and tell myself
It's been a lovely wait.

And it's alright,
(Everything is alright.)
Allright.
(Everything's alright.)

With the revelations granted
And a face just like the haunted.
I see myself on the nursery wall
On the poster reading 'Wanted'.
And there's a big reward
For bringing me in.
And I know in my very heart,
I committed no sin.

And it's alright,
(Everything is alright.)
Allright.
(Everything is alright.)

I'm John the Baptist
And this is my friend Salome.
And you can bet it's my head she wants,
And not my heart only.
If you see me smiling,
And you wonder why,
You can bet it's a private joke
Between her and I.

And it's alright,
(Everything is alright.)
Allright.
(Everything is alright.)
Everything's alright,
Everything's alright...
