How May I Help You?
How may I help you? The ten million-dollar question Me and some souls dubbed reps Take delight in asking by obligation
Two love birds
Two love birds: Singing together, Perching together, Roaming together.

Three birds perched One flew away Two remained perching Another flew away

The ten million-dollar question
Me and some souls dubbed reps

We talk to ghosts,
We talk to apparitions
And again in the course of duty:
We get praised to heavens,
We get worshipped to idols
What a funny world:
Where you see not those you dine with!
