The palpitating cherry-red organ was returned to its rightful place and began to beat faster as it led our hero, counting out time, through his first romantic encounter.


I'm counting out time
Got the whole thing down by numbers
All those numbers
Give my guidance
O Lord I need that now

The day of judgement's come
And you can bet that I've been resting for this testing
Digesting every word the experts say
Erogenous zones I love you
Without you what would a poor boy do?

Found a girl I wanted to date
Thought I'd better get it straight
Went to buy a book before it's too late
Don't leave nothing to fate
And I have studied every line
Every page in the book,
And now I've got the real thing here
I'm gonna take a look
Take a look

This is it Rael

I'm counting out time
Hoping it goes like I planned it
'Cos I understand it
Look I've found the hotspots
Figures one to nine
Still counting out time
Got my finger on the button
Don't say nuttin
Just lie there still
And I'll get you turned on just fine
Erogenous zones I love you
Without you what would a poor boy do?

Touch and go with one to six
Bit of trouble in zone number seven
Gotta remember all of my tricks
There's seventh heaven in number eleven
Getting crucial responses
Dilation of the pupils
Honey get hip
It's time to unzip
To unzip zip zip-a-zip-a-zip
Whippee

Take it away Mister Guitar
Move over Casanova

I'm counting out time
Reaction none to happy
Please don't slap me
I'm a red blooded male and the book said I could not fail
I'm counting out time
I got unexpected distress from my mistress
I'll get my money back from the bookstore right away
Erogenous zones I question you
Without you what would a poor boy do?
Without you what would a poor boy do?
Without you mankind handkinds through the blues
