LyricsEdit

Kid, stay and snip your cord off,

talk and let your mind loose,

can't all think like Chekov

but you'll be O.K.

Kid is this your first time here?

Some can't stand the beauty,

so they cut off one ear,

but you'll be O.K.


Welcome to the garden of earthly delights

Welcome to a billion Arabian nights

This is your life and you do what you want to do,

this is your life and you spend it all

This is your life and you do what you want to do,

just don't hurt nobody,

and the big reward's here,

in the garden of earthly delights.


Kid, pick up with another,

some will even drop you,

but hearts are built like rubber,

so you'll be alright

Kid, swallow but believe us,

you won't die of boredom,

should you have to leave us,

it'll be alright.


Welcome to the garden of earthly delights

Welcome to a billion Arabian nights

This is your life and you be what you want to be,

this is your life and you try it all

This is your life and you be what you want to be,

just don't hurt nobody,

'less of course they ask you,

in the garden of earthly delights


Welcome to the garden of earthly delights

Welcome to a billion Arabian nights

This is your life and you do what you want to do,

this is your life and you spend it all

This is your life and you do what you want to do,

just don't hurt nobody

Come on, come now!


Welcome to the garden of earthly delights

Welcome to a billion Arabian nights

Welcome to the garden of earthly delights

Welcome to a billion Arabian nights

This is your life and you be what you want to be,

this is your life and you try it all

This is your life and you be what you want to be,

just don't hurt nobody,

'less of course they ask you,

in the garden of earthly delights
