Annie Says

Annie says I should do what she tells me;
Annie tells me what to do.
Annie says I should do what I'm told,
And she'll tell me what to do.

Annie moves in mysterious ways.
Annie says that she thinks I might be crazy,
She might be right...

'Cause Annie says, I'm just a loonie,
Annie says I'm a fool
And I think the same about everyone else
That Annie just tells me about.
Annie says that ...

[John runs out of words!]

Annie says, I'm a fool and I'm a loonie;
I believe it could be true.
Annie says I'm stranger than crazy,
I say: Annie you could be, too.
It could happen to a bishop or a priest
Or any man that you see on the street.
- They could be crazy
Any woman or man you see;
Any child, any star you find.

Annie says: Any chance.
Annie says: Any fortune.
The luck of the draw, the sling of the dice.
The lowest hand, the highest nose.
Don't think twice, 'cause Annie says.

Johnny says, Annie's all right,
Johnny loves her all the time.
Johnny says, Annie's all right,
Johnny loves her all the time.

She's got to be right.
Annie, got to be right, Annie, got to be right.
Annie, got to be right, Annie, got to be right.

Annie says I drive her crazy,
Annie knows I'm a lazy animal.
Annie knows in her heart that I'm crazy,
I tell you that it's something spiritual.
Annie's right, I'm always wrong;
Annie's wrong, I'm always right.
Annie's right, and I'm always wrong;
Annie's wrong, and I'm always right.

Annie says I should move like a winner;
Annie says she'll show me how.
Annie says that I know how to pin her,
I just have the don't-know-smile.
Little Johnny boy,
'Cause the don't-know-smile.
Oh little Johnny boy.
Annie says...

muffnote:
This song contains rare scat vocals. Only time in thirty years that John runs out of words...
