lyrics

Goodbye Houdini
the answer is yes
I sure am impressed
such a cloud of smoke
such a sudden and profound disinterest

Goodbye Houdini
I sure am amazed
those hard iron chains
could never bind you
they'll never find you
you made such a great escape

Houdini how long can you hold your breath
you must have cheated death a thousand times
Houdini I must say I never knew
just what I meant to you
'til the shackles hit the ground
the straightjacket came unwound
you stood and took the most magnificent bow

Goodbye Houdini
I've surely been blessed
by your grace and style
your craft and guile
you got 'em murdered in the aisle

Houdini how long can you hold your breath
you must have cheated death a thousand times
Houdini I must say I never knew
just what I meant to you
'til the shackles hit the ground
the straightjacket came unwound
you stood and took the most magnificent bow
Houdini what happens to me now

in the end
it's appendicitis that'll get you
not the locked box
nor the irons
not the cuffs or the cage or the casket
or the girl who believes you are magic

Houdini how long can you hold your breath
you must have cheated death a thousand times
Houdini I must say I never knew
just what I meant to you
'til the shackles hit the ground
the straightjacket came unwound
you stood and took the most magnificent bow

Goodbye Houdini
