Moonbats told me about him, They made up lies.

Please don't bother tryin' to find him
he's not there

Well let me tell you 'bout the way he looked
The way he'd act and the lack of much hair
His voice was soft and cool
His eyes were clear and bright
But he's not there

Well moonbats told me about him, what he did do
Well moonbats told me about him, that he was through.
But it's too late to ring his Blackberry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother tryin' to find him
he's not there

Well let me tell you 'bout the way he looked
The way he'd act and the lack of much hair
His voice was soft and cool
His eyes were clear and bright
