I was walkin' in the wholesale flower district that day
and I passed by this place where this old Chinese man
he sometimes sells me weird and exotic cuttings,
'cause he knows, you see, that strange plants are my hobby.
Da da da da da da-doo.
He didn't have anything unusual there that day.
so I was just about to, ya know, walk on by,
Good for you,
and without warning, there was this total eclipse of the sun.
It got very dark and there was this strange
sound like something from another world.
And when the light came back this weird plant was just sitting there,
just, you know, stuck in, among the zinnias.
I coulda sworn it hadn't been there before,
but the old Chinese man sold it to me anyways,
for a dollar ninety-five.
Sha la la, la la la, la la la loo.
