Lyrics:

(Bang bang)

Could a body close the mind out?
Stitch a seam across the eye?
If you can be good, you’ll live forever
If you’re bad, you’ll die when you die

Hearing only one true note
On the one and only sound
Unzip my body, take my heart out
Cause I need a beat to give this tune

(Taking a picture)
(Taking a picture)
(Taking a picture)
(Bang bang)

Oh, the body swayed to music
Oh, the lightning glance
If I would give it all and all
Maybe you would hear me
Ask for half a chance

Hearing only one root note
Planted firmly in the ground
Undo my heart, unzip my body and
Lend to my ear a clear and a deafening sound
(Unzip my heart)

And if I need a rhythm
It’ll be to my heart I listen
If it don’t put me too far wrong
(And if I, and if I)
And if I need a rhythm
Gonna be to my heart I listen
If it don’t put me too far wrong

Everybody smile, please
Nobody pay no mind to me
Finger in position on the switch
A little flash photography

Taking a picture of you (to my heart)
Taking a picture of
Taking a picture of me
Taking a picture

Ramalama, bang bang
Flash bang, Big Bang
Bing bong, ding dong
Dum dum d-dum dum

With a hammer, bang bang
Flash bang, press gang
Bing bong, ding dong
Hum hum h-hum
With a st-stammer, bang bang
Crash bang, Big Bang
Boing boing boing boing
Dum dum d’ dum dum

With a st-stammer
With a st-stammer
With a st-stammer
Bang bang, crash bang
Big Bang, bing bang, crash bang

(Keep on, keep on)
(Keep on, keep on)

And if I, and if I need a rhythm (and if I need a rhythm)
It’s gonna be to my heart I listen
And if I, and if I need a rhythm
It’s gonna be to my heart I listen
And if I, and if I need a rhythm
It’s gonna be to my heart I listen
Need a rhythm, to my heart I listen
Need a rhythm, need a rhythm
Need a rhythm, need a rhythm
And if I, and if I need a rhythm (Keep on, keep on)

(Keep on, keep on)
(Keep on, keep on)
