Lyrics of The Origin of Love

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 they had two sets of legs
They had two faces peering out of one giant head
So they could watch around them as they talked, while they read
And they never knew nothing of love
It was before hmm, the origin of love
The origin of love
And there were three sexes then one that looked like two men
Glued up back to back we called the children of the sun
And similar in shape and girth was the children of the Earth
They looked like two girls rolled up in one
And the children of the moon were like a fork stuck on a spoon
They were part sun, part
Earth, part daughter, part son
Hmm, the 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 but Zeus said no
You better let me use my lightning like scissors
Like I cut the legs off the whales, dinosaurs into lizards
And then he grabbed up some bolts he let out a laugh
Said I'll split them right down the middle
Gonna cut them right up in half
And the storm clouds gathered above into great balls of fire
And then 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 to a hole
Pulled it 'round to our bellies
To remind us the price we pay
And Osiris 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
If we don't behave they'll cut us down again
We'll be hopping round on one foot
And looking through one eye
Last time I saw you we just split in two
You was looking at me
I was looking at you, you
Had a way so familiar
I could not recognize
'Cos you had blood in your face, 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 one down in mine
Oh, that's the pain that cuts a straight line
Down through the heart we call it love
We wrapped our arms around each other
Trying to shove ourselves back together
We were making love making love
It was a cold dark evening such a long time ago
When by the mighty hand of Jove
It was a sad story how we became lonely two-legged creatures
The story the origin of love
That's the origin of love the origin of love, oh
The origin of love love, love, love the origin of love
