When the earth was still flat, and the clouds made of fire And mountains stretched up to the sky, sometimes higher Folks roamed the earth like big rolling kegs They had two sets of arms, two sets of legs They had two faces peering out of one giant head And they could watch all around them And they talked while they read And they never knew nothing of love It was before the origin of love Origin of love And there were three sexes then One that looked like two men glued back to back Called the children of the sun And similar in shape and girth were the children of the earth They looked like two girls rolled up in one And the children of the moon were like a fork shoved on a spoon They were part sun, part earth, part daughter, part son Origin of love Now the gods grew quite scared of our strength and defiance And Thor said: "I'm gonna kill them all with my hammer Like I killed the giants." And Zeus said: "No, you better let me use my lightning, like scissors Like I cut the legs off whales And dinosaurs into lizards." Then he grabbed up some bolts And he let out a laugh, said: "I'll split them right down to the middle Gonna rip them right in half." And then storm clouds gathered above Into great balls of fire And the fire shot down From the sky in bolts Like shining blades of a knife And it ripped right through the flesh Of the children of the sun And the moon, and the earth And some Indian god Sewed the wound up into a hole Pulled it 'round to our belly To remind us of the price we pay And Osiris and the gods of the Nile Gathered up a big storm To blow a hurricane To scatter us away In a flood of wind and rain And a sea of tidal waves To wash us all away And if we dont behave They'll cut us down again And well be hopping round on one foot Looking through one eye Last time I saw you We had just split in two You were looking at me, and I was looking at you You had a way so familiar But I could not recognize 'Cause you had blood on your face And I had blood in my eyes But I could swear by your expression That the pain down in your soul Was the same as the pain down in mine That's the pain Cuts a straight line down through the heart We call it love So we wrapped our arms around each other Trying to shove ourselves back together We were making love It was a cold dark evening such a long time ago When by the mighty hand of Jove It was the sad story How we became lonely two-legged creatures It's the story of The origin of love That's the origin of love, origin of love, origin of love
