Columbo

You know your time has come when a grilling from Columbo
ends with stupid questions, and you thought he was guessing
On your knees now, we always knew you did it
right from the beginning we're in on the joke.

Kirk and Spock and Bones are beaming down to check out
some deserted planet and you're along as look-out
On your knees now, in this foregone conclusion
face it Mr Johnson you're over and out.

The weight of time, the time you wait, the weight around your neck in the morning
The mass of space around your bed, the space you take up when you're sleeping
Fold you up to make you fit, but you're not getting any smaller.

It's early days in Venice and Desdemona's faithful
but jealousy's the premise so come on now Othello.
On your knees now and give up while the going's
going in your direction. Save us all the wait.

The weight of time, the time you wait, the weight around your neck in the morning
The mass of space around your bed, the space you take up when you're sleeping
Fold you up to make you fit, but you're not getting any smaller.

The weight of time, the time you wait, the weight around your neck in the morning
The mass of space around your bed, the space you take up when you're sleeping
Words are all that tumble out and you were holding out for numbers
to dial from a public phone. "This is the God-line what's your question?"

No, no wait for my signal, only act on my say-so
So you think this is living? You're moving round but you're dreaming…
