lyrics

There was a little boy named Thomas. He was a little bit shy. He would not play with the other kids. He would not look you in the eye. He just recited numbers, just a far as he could go. Thomas liked to stage his secret shows.
The first time I saw Thomas, it was in a special school. I took him to the music room. He sat down on a stool. He yelled monster at the piano. I yelled danger at the drums. Thomas liked to sing his secret songs.
There was a little boy named Thomas. He was a little bit strange.
He liked to spin in circles and he smiled as he sang. He really was intelligent. People called him slow. Thomas liked to stage his special shows.
The last time I saw Thomas, he was crying in a yard. A friend of his was leaving and he always took things hard. I yelled danger at the piano. He yelled monster at the drums. Thomas liked to sing his secret songs.
And if the world Is not right with Thomas, then something must be wrong.
