The Lyrics

The “Bodies” exhibition features corpses of Asians, which have been flayed, sliced, and polymer preserved in dramatic poses so that visitors can learn about the intricate workings of the human body.
I've got him under my skin,
I've got him deep in the hide of me,
So deep in my hide, he's partly inside of me,
I've got him under my skin.

I hate my Siamese twin,
I said to him, "When we were born you were a match for me;
But now that I see you are Thai, please won't you detach for me?"
I've got him under my skin.

I'd sacrifice half a lung, or much more,
For the sake of splitting in twain
Before there’s a Buddha voice that strikes me with awe,
And repeats and repeats in my brain,
"Though he’s Eng (maybe Chang), to part is a sin,
Think of diversity,
Face up to adversity."
But they may peel me, just as well as he
When they let the flaying begin,
'Cause I've got him under my skin.

Eng and Chang are the names of the original Siamese Twins.

Al - Should I score this one double? Why did the Siamese twins move from America to Europe? So that the other one could drive! ;D

I believe you have a first, here...don't recall ever seeing a Siamese twin theme before.

Unusual concept, gross but graceful. 555s for originality.
