Lyrics
On the seven seas there was aphantom ship acoming,
Shinin' in the dead of night,
I heard the crew a hummin'
Tunes that sounded like the Rolling Stones and Leonard Cohen.
But they didn't know the words,
So I assumed that they was foreign.

But I heard them just the same doctor let me teach 'em,
I just want to please 'em, doctor let me teach 'em.

I looked up in the sky there was a phantom plane a comin',
Shinin' in the dead of night,
I heard the pilot saying,
Poems that were written by John Keats and Robert Browning.
But he didn't know the words so,
I suppose that it was nothing.

But I heard them just the same doctor let me teach 'em,
I just want to please 'em, doctor let me teach 'em.

Doctor please believe me, I know you won't decieve me,
But do these things I'm seein', have any hidden meaning.
It's all good entertainment and it doesn't cost a penny.
So please doc, let me teach 'em, if I could only reach 'em.

But I heard them just the same doctor let me teach 'em,
I just want to please 'em, doctor let me teach 'em.
