about

A gift for my friend Gil Cnaan, and my first foray into steampunk.

lyrics

If you go to certain shows
On the American east coast
(who knows!)
You might meet a man who's more than a man
Whose experience is always in demand
(and that's the plan!)

Oh, his heart
It was letting him down
So, he tore it out
And he can't be stopped now

(He's a razzle-dazzle fellow with tremendous acumen and skill who I do truly admire, uh-huh.)
He's the man with a clockwork heart!
(He's a rad cat on the scene, never gets petty or mean, and he carries himself with such aplomb)
He's the man with a clockwork heart!
With brass and steam he's part machine,
He's the man with the clockwork heart!

So he wines and he dines
With that heart, he's going all the time
(day and night!)
With this top hat, and fashionable cravat
Where he is, well that's always where it's at
(and that's a fact!)

Oh, his heart
It was letting him down
So, he tore it out
And he can't be stopped now

(He's a razzle-dazzle fellow with tremendous acumen and skill who I do truly admire)
He's the man with a clockwork heart!
(He's a rad cat on the scene, never gets petty or mean, and he carries himself with such aplomb)
He's the man with a clockwork heart!
With brass and steam he's part machine,
He's the man with the clockwork heart!

etc.
