The Lyrics

Everyone's got a camera these days, recording everything in sight, especially their kids. Mike's a guy who's really into it, shooting everything from bugs to babies, of which he now has two. He's very good, but can sometimes drive the people around him totally batty.

Mike's metaphysical very analytical
Shoots bugs at his home
Stays up late by himself crouching in his yard
Oh, oh, oh
Eileen Rosalie hiding behind a tree
Watches him alone
Wondering in her mind if the boy
Is sa-a-a-ane.
But as she steps out into the light
His camera points her way

Snap, snap, Michael's brand new camera's
Cold flash upon her face
Snap, snap Michael's brand new camera
Froze her right in her place

Back inside again Mike plays his card again
Eileen's not amused
Baby's sleeping peacefully in her cri-i-i-ib
Keep all your honey-bunch before I lose my lunch
Mike backs down in fear
Cowering in the corner all meek and mi-i-i-ild
But as she storms on out of the room
The babe opens her eyes

Snap, snap Michael's brand new camera's
Cold flash upon her face
Snap, snap Michael's brand new camera
Chalks up another ace

Up from the sofa sat Sonny in a Wonka hat
Eileen strides back in
Munching on some cold sausage pizza oh, oh, oh, oh
Don't move Daddy says, Sonny rolls his eyes in dread
Michael raised to aim
Eileen says don't you dare, Mike, don't you d-a-a-are
Then as she tries to jump on his back, the kids
Burst out in tears

Snap, snap Michael's brand new camera's
Cold flash lit up the place
Snap, snap Michael's brand new camera
Just can't resist that face

Doo, doo, doodle doo ...

Shows what you know, I'm a lousy photographer. Everybody hates the pictures I take. Especially Michael Douglas. (And the regulars on this site know why!)
