lyrics

Buddha Home
©2004 Henry Boy Jenkins

I met the Buddha on the road back home
The skies were cloudy
And we did like people do in Rome
If I were Michelangelo
I’d paint your face across my ceiling
Once more with feeling
So alone

We drove all night long--just the two of us
He said: “It’s alright, son
You’re either on or off The Bus.”
If I were Mario
I’d turn this rig around and race right to your door
I’d come back
For more

Operator, turn on your microphone
Call me a taxi - Hail to the Chief
Tryin’ to get the Buddha home

Operator, silence me with The Cone
‘Cuz I’m down on my luck and I’m out on the street
I’m tryin’ to get the Buddha home
I’m tryin’ to get the Buddha home

Young Love is popular in Outer Space
The cosmonauts declare:
“It’s all the rage!”
If I were Galileo
I’d discover Heaven in your kiss
That’s what I miss
The most

Operator, turn on your microphone
Call me a taxi - Hail to the Chief
Tryin’ to get the Buddha home

Operator, silence me with The Cone
‘Cuz I’m down on my luck and I’m out on the street
I’m tryin’ to get the Buddha home
I’m tryin’ to get the Buddha home


Don’t stop
Don’t tell me to stop
Don’t go
Don’t tell me to go
Don’t wait
Don’t tell me to wait
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-one more time

If I were Deano
I’d croon down the moon
To taste your pizza pie
Oh! That’s amore!
My-oh-my-oh...

Operator, turn on your microphone
Call me a taxi - Hail to the Chief
I’m tryin’ to get the Buddha home

Operator, won’t you silence me with The Cone?
Well, I’m outta my luck and I’m down on the street
I’m outta my mind but I’m flat on my feet
Hot on your trail - I’m poundin’ a beat
I’m tryin’ to get the Buddha home
