The Inventor's Daughter  The Cog Is Dead

The Inventor?s Daughter
Intro: A D E A A D E A
I on[A]ce knew a girl with a h[D]eart of gold
Two l[E]egs of copper and a[A]rms of chrome
The pr[A]ettiest girl I e[D]ver knew
I [E]loved each rivet, b[A]olt and screw
Shiny locks of wire hair
And copper plating everywhere
There was no doubt she had to be
The one and only girl for me
B[E]ut she was the daughter of a m[A]ean old man,
An in[E]ventor who just wouldn't let her g[A]o
And t[E]hough his creation had grown f[A]ond of me,
His con[D]tinual responses told me [E]no
So we made a plan to elope that day
We packed our kisses to the far away
I went to her window late that night
And she was ready for our flight
I was happy as I could be
When she wrapped her tiny metal arms round me
And with a propeller sticking from her head
We switched it on and fled!
But her father was a crazy man
And he didn't want to let us get away
He was able to pull us from the sky that night
With a powerful magnetic ray
So he took my girl from me
And shunned me for eternity
He locked her up inside a room
As cold and awful as a tomb
And though I am consumed with rage
I know that man is up in age
And soon as he is finally dead
Then she and I will wed!
La, la, la la la
La, la la la la la la
La, la, la la la
La, la la la la la la
La, la, la la la
La, la la la la la la
La, la, la la la
La la la la la
La la la la
La la la la
"We interrupt this broadcast to bring you breaking news. At approximately 2:05 PM this
afternoon, an English clockmaker by the name of Hamilton revealed to the world a new kind
of clock. This sick, twisted design displays the time digitally on a small backlit
screen and is run entirely on electricity. Hamilton predicts that this new abomination is the
way of the future, and believes that someday these hideous creations of his will be in
every home in the world. It is with deep regret that we announce to you, dear listeners,
that the cog is dead. We repeat: The cog is dead."
