Man Who Got No Sign

Ko-we-ha Gemini Jim taw Scorpio Salo Taw sejno-nej-o-to-kono o-ha-na-shi-te-saw There was Gemini Jim and Scorpio Sal they was livin' by the Golden Gate Freezin' their nose and wearin' leather clothes and dealin' every way but straight They had a Leo dog and a Capricorn cat and everything was goin' fine Until into their life on a moonless night come the man who got no sign He roared right in like some evil wind and he rolled himself a righteous smoke As the thunder scrashed and the lightenin' flashed he took a toke and a spoke Said he was born in an astrological warp when the stars refused to shine On the cusp of Nowhere and Nevermore he's the man that got no sign Then he told a story of an endless search to find his missin' part And Scorpio Sal she smiles at him tries to do his chart But the Pisces Ben who was Jim's best friend aaid man you must be blind You better grab your knife and take the life of the man who'd got no sign And so it happened and his blood run soaked the ground The arrest was made by Sheriff Slade and Aquarius thru and thru But the jailer was a Sagittarius so he beat Jim black and blue And then they dragged him up to the courthouse stairs they said Jim how do you plea He said man the moon's in Virgo so the blame don't fall on me Well the jury all was the Libras so you know they was more than fair But the lawyer was an Aries and an Aries just don't care The judge he was a Cancer and Cancers have no friends But the hungman was a Taurus and that's where the circle ends
