lyrics

put the genie back in the bottle
as much as anyone can
any flicker of hope
any grain of sand

save your friends on the banks of the Delaware
save your friends on the Seine
save your friends on the Tigris and Adelaide

oh, look on the bright side
if they ever go
you might never know
oh, and if they do
do it right beneath my nose
so I don't ever know

so put the genie back in the bottle
before you make other plans
to return to the moon
or to dreamland

and save your friends on the brink of discovery
save your friends in the black
save your friends so the best of you
can bring the rest back
