The Lyrics

You saw a black cat
A daytime owl
So you'll get lots of bad luck today

A magical spell
A Heaven or Hell
Why do you believe each word they say?

Bad luck to break a mirror:
Superstitious minds
We let them run our lives
Superstitious minds

I'm Aquarianal
Mere superstition is so hard to disguise

There you go again
Never using your brain
You believe Santa Claus is real

You're taken in, forever
Superstitious minds
Falling for viral memes
Superstitious minds

So I don't find it odd
That you believe there's a God
And that we'll live on when we die

When will you work out
They're only lyin' to you
Mmm yeah, yeah

Believin' in crap
No sense of doubt
'Cause you ain't thinking too much, baby

Depending on faith
Is such a wathte
When you don't even try using your brain

All kinds of claptrap
Never thought it out
Your mind ain't working too hard, baby

Believin' in crap
Not a trace of doubt
'Cause you ain't thinking too much, baby

repeat ad nauseam

scans beautifully, I love the Aquarianal-astroillogical line! 5's

It's quite a leap, talking about superstitions about things that you see, to faith about things you don't see...."blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe".....

Phil, great sentiment and expression of it, but... It didn't quite scan right in my pea-brain... so I read it with two different versions of OS side-by-side, and still a large (for you) number of lines seemed +- one or even two beats... I'm gonna abstain until you reply to show me whether I'm missing something.
Again, wholeheartedly agree with every line, except that... surely the tooth fairy is real? There was always a quarter under my pillow....

Don't know the song, but liked the content. I submitted a parody of "Lost in Music" (your favorite song, heh heh) a few minutes ago.

Is there a five-leaf clover? No, only three- and four-leafers? Then I award you five four-leaf clovers. Don't forget that Elvis sang "Good Luck Charm" and hit Number 1 with it in 1962.

TT - I didn't use a lyric sheet, but put the OS on: there's quite a few places where Elvis sings one-syllable words as two or three so I'm not surprised it's not 100% with the lyrics
Rex- I'm sorry to have to break the news to you ;-)
Voice of Reason - (apart from the obvious misuse of the word "reason") No, I don't think that it's a great leap at all: it's all about believing stuff with no evidence to base it on...

Glad I waited. 555 ;-)
