lyrics

MY PERSONAL GNEECHIE
(c) Ju Honisch

Chorus:
Did you see it,
almost see it,
just beyond the fringe of vision
there's a gneechie,
somesuch creature,
when you do not look it's there.

Oh my gneechie's buzzing round me
even if I can't see it,
and its silent snicker hounds me
but by force it can't be hit.
And my gneechie's being busy
but what with I cannot see;
its existence makes me dizzy
so elusive it must be.

But I know my gneechie's pleasure
while it zaps around my brain
it steals time I keep for leisure
it steals time and leaves me pain.
Oh, if only I could catch it
I would keep it in a cage,
but it's free and makes me wretched,
makes me hurry in a rage.

All the time that it has taken
it keeps safe somewhere close-by.
After midnight when I waken
I can almost hear it cry.
Oh my gneechie lives by stealing
bits of life and bits of me
and I get this awful feeling
that it laughs triumphantly .
