lyrics

Genie (Sam Whimpenny)

Scientifically it can’t be true
Too much weight, too much inertia
But the proof is there in front of you
Flown here all the way from Persia

And the Genie is set free
He’s well qualified I hope you will agree
He’ll do anything you ask
Name your wish Sir, name that task

Intuition stares you in the face
There is something slightly scary
When you contemplate the Human Race
Life can be so damn contrary

And the Genie is set free
He’s well qualified I hope you will agree
He’ll do anything you ask
Name your wish Sir, name that task

Keep believing, keep your smile intact
You’re an accessory after the fact
Don’t ask for proof as a refusal will offend
Just keep believing till the end

Have another glass of irony
Take the chill from your illusion
I was watching but I did not see
Guess he escaped in the confusion

And the Genie is set free
He’s well qualified I hope you will agree
He’ll do anything you ask
Name your wish Sir, name that task
