The Lyrics

He's the cool magician we always see,
Who thinks he's Harry Houdini,
He hates to go without publicity,
For his last stunt he went for months,
In a glass box without food once,
Suspended over London, and the Brits....

(Chorus)
Threw rotten eggs at him,
Yelled at him and taunted him,
Told him, "We can't wait for you to go".
Cause they're waiting for David Blaine,
To get the heck out of Britain,
Oh Dave, why don't you go.

Pick a card and he'll swipe your watch,
And levitate while you're in shock.
And pull his own heart right out of his chest.
He's the master of card tricks,
He'll swallow a snake and make you feel sick,
Think of anything and he'll read your mind,

Chorus:
But they threw rotten eggs at him,
Yelled at him and taunted him,
Told him, "We can't wait for you to go".
Cause they're waiting for David Blaine,
To get the heck out of Britain,
Oh Dave, why don't you go.

Stood three days in a block of ice,
And one week, underground with mice,
And stood on a pillar of 80 feet,
But his latest stunt will be,
To go 44 days without publicity,
The hardest thing he'll ever have to do

Chorus:
But they threw rotten eggs at him,
Yelled at him and taunted him,
Told him, "We can't wait for you to go".
Cause they're waiting for David Blaine,
To get the heck out of Britain,
Oh Dave, why don't you go.

Blane's a a quirky guy, but he has original ideas. Not always good ones though.

Nice off-the-wall effort. here. Ever find it ironic that "Leaving on a Jet Plane" was John Denver's first success, and he left us in a plane crash?

Blaine's just a flake, man. Nothin' flaky about this though. Good job man.
