counting out time lyrics – genesis

i’m counting out time
got the whole thing down by numbers
all those numbers
give me guidance
o lord i need that now

the day of judgement’s come
and you can bet that i’ve been resting
for this testing
digesting every word the experts say
erogenous zones i love you
without you, what would a poor boy do?

found a girl i wanted to date
thought i’d better get it straight
went to buy a book before it’s too late
don’t leave nothing to fate
i’ve studied every line, every page in the book
but now i’ve got the real thing here, i’m gonna take a look
take a look

this is it rael!

i’m counting out time, hoping it goes like i planned it
‘cos i understand it, look! i’ve found the hotspots, figures 1-9
– still counting out time, i’ve got my finger on the b*tton
“don’t say nothin’ – just lie there still now
and i’ll get you turned on just fine”
erogenous zones i love you
without you, what would a poor boy do?

touch and go with 1-6
bit of trouble in zone no. 7
gotta remember all my tricks
there’s heaven ahead in no. 11
getting crucial responses with dilation of the pupils
“honey get hip, it’s time to unzip, to unzip zip, zip-a-zip, zip-a-zip
whippee!”

– move over casanova –
i’m counting out time, reaction none too happy
please don’t slap me
i’m a red-blooded male and the book said i could not fail
i’m counting out time, i got unexpected distress from my mistress
i’ll get my money back from the bookstore right away
erogenous zones i question you -without you, what would a poor boy do?
without you, what would a poor boy do?
without you, mankind handkinds thru’ the blues
