Lyrics

Oogie waits for just another day
Drags his bones to see the Yankees play
Bones Boy talks and flickers gray
Oh, they slip away

Once a time they nearly might have been
Bones and Oogie on a silver screen
No one knew what they could do
Except for me and you
They slip away
They slip away

CHORUS
  Don't forget to keep your head warm
  Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
  Watching all the world and war torn
  How I wonder where you are

  Sailing over Coney Island
  Twinkle twinkle Uncle Floyd
  We were dumb but you were fun, boy
  How I wonder where you are
  Oo-oo

Oogie knew there's never ever time
Some of us will always stay behind
Down in space it's always 1982
The joke we always knew
Oo-oo
What's-a matter with you

C'mon, let's go
Slip away
Oo-oo

CHORUS
