VERSE 3:
Take apart your bones and put 'em back together
Tell your mama that you're somebody new
Feel the breeze blowin', tell em all, "Look out, here it comes!"
Now, I can say whatever I feel like to you
VERSE 4:

Let a chorus girl sing me a song
Put a red-hot jazz band, we raise` `I'm afraid it's the best I can do to decifer this
Hallelujah as we go along line. I'm all ears if you can understand it better.
Well,
