Just got home from Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy

Got to sit down, take a rest on the porch

 

Imagination sets in, pretty soon I’m singing

Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door

 

[Verse 2]

There’s a giant doing cartwheels

A statue wearing high heels

Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn

 

A dinosaur Victrola, listening to Buck Owens

Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door

 

[Bridge]

Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band

Won’t you take a ride on the flying spoon?

Doo doo doo

 

 

A wondrous apparition, provided by magician

Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door

 

[Guitar solo]

 

[Bridge]

Tambourines and elephants are playing in the band

Won’t you take a ride on the flying spoon?

Doo, doo doo

 

Bother me tomorrow, today I’ll buy no sorrows

Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door

 

[Verse 3]

Forward troubles Illinois, lock the front door, oh boy

Look at all the happy creatures dancing on the lawn

 

Bother me tomorrow, today I’ll bide no sorrows

Doo, doo, doo, looking out my back door
