The Light Kid
(Lyrics & Music: P. Myrsten)

Yes, he was a good detective
He was travelling 'cross the sea
Fighting ghosts and hunting pirates
He was saving you and me

He was coming from Chicago
Heading for the Irish coast
He was going there to help us
fooling our hostile host

We were sending him some signals
from the lighthouse where we stayed
S.O.S. please come and help us
We're imprisoned and betrayed

Chorus:
We we we we
have to get rid of the light kid
we have to get rid of the light kid
we have to get rid of the light kid
we have to get rid of the light kid
light kid

I was sitting in the lighthouse
playing at my Hofner bass
When the light kid knocked the door and
put an end to happy days

He was telling us to stay there
Saying we could never go
I said I will call a special
good detective that I know

He was getting quite annoying
making fun of you and me
So I went up in the tower
sending signals 'cross the sea

(Repeat chorus)

Over the Atlantic ocean
lighthouse signals could be seen
Over the Chicago skyline
still the light was bright and clean

It was shining through the houses
reaching the detective's place
He thought this is just what I need
Seems to be another case

Took an aircraft to the harbour
Putting on his warmest coat
Asked a fisherman to take him
'cross the ocean in his boat

(Repeat chorus)

Finally he saw the lighthouse
and the little kid of light
who was leaving very quickly
wanting to avoid a fight

Don't come back, said the detective
I want to see you no more
Now I'm going to move in here
he said while shutting the door

Yes, he was a good detective
He was travelling 'cross the sea
Fighting ghosts and hunting pirates
He was saving you and me

(Repeat chorus)
