this song proves that while his comical songs are equally brilliant, he can right a really beautiful and poignant song

I think that deserves to have the lyrics transcribed.

===================================

This is my Earth
and I live in it.
It's one third dirt and two thirds
water.

And its rotates and revolves through space
at rather an impressive pace
It never even messes up
my hair.

And here's the really weird thing:
the force created by it's spin
is the force that stops the chaos
flooding in.

This is my earth
and it's fine.
It's where I spend the vast majority
of my time

It's not perfect - but it's mine.

It's not perfect.

This is my country
and I live in it.
It's really big and nice to walk on.
And the bloke who runs my country
has built a demagoguery
and taught us to be fearful
and boring.

and the weirdest thing is that he is
conservative of politics
but really rather radical
of eyebrows


This is my country
and it's fine.
It's where I spend the vast majority of my time
it's not perfect - but it's mine

It's not perfect

This my house
and I live in it.
It's made of cracks and photographs
we rent it off
a guy who bought it
from a guy who bought it
from a guy
whose grandad left it
to him.

and the weirdst thing
is that this house has locks to keep the baddies out
but they're mostly used to lock ourselves
in.

This is my house
and it's fine.
It's where I spend the vast majority of my time
It's not perfect - but it's mine.
But it's mine.

It's not perfect - but it's mine.


This is my body
and I live in it.
It's thirty one and 6 months old.
It's changed a lot since it was new
it's done stuff it wasn't built to do.
I often try to fill it up with wine.

And the weirdest thing about it is
I spend so much time hating it
But it never says a bad word
about me.

This is my body and its fine
it's where I spend the vast majorty of my time
it's not perfect - but it's mine!

It's not perfect

This is my brain.
and I live in it.
It's made of
love and
bad song lyrics

it's tied away behind my eyes
where all my screwed up thoughts can hide.
'cos god forbid
I hurt somebody

And the weirdest thing about a mind
is that every answer that you find
is the basis of a brand new cliché


This is my brain
and it's fine
It's where I spend the vast majority of my time
it's not perfect - but it's mine

it's not perfect - but it's mine
it's not perfect,
I'm not quite sure I've worked out how to work it.

It's not perfect - but it's mine.
