Illusions in G Major Songtext

On the seven seas, there was a phantom ship a-comin',
Shinin' in the dead of night,
I heard the crew a-hummin'
Tunes that sounded like the Rolling Stones and Leonard Cohen.
But they didn't know the words,
So I assumed that they was foreign.

But I heard them just the same.
Oh, doctor, let me teach 'em,
I just wanna please 'em now.
I said, "Doctor, let me teach 'em,
I just wanna please 'em now."

I looked up in the sky: there was a phantom plane a-comin',
Shinin' in the dead of night,
I heard the pilot saying
Poems that were written by John Keats and Robert Browning.
But he didn't know the words,
So I suppose that it was nothing.


But I heard them just the same.
Oh, doctor, let me teach 'em,
I just wanna please 'em now.
I said, "Doctor, let me teach 'em,
I just wanna please 'em now."

Oh, doctor, please believe me,
I know you won't deceive me,
But do these things I'm seein'
Have any hidden meaning.
It's all good entertainment,
And it doesn't cost a penny.
So please, doc, let me teach 'em,
If I could only reach 'em.

But I heard them just the same.
Oh, doctor, let me teach 'em,
I just wanna please 'em now.
Oh, doctor, let me teach 'em,
I just wanna please 'em now.
