LYRICS

Electric blue eyes, where do you come from?
Electric blue eyes, who sent you?
Electric blue eyes, always be near me
Electric blue eyes, I need you
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no-o

Domine, Domine Deus
Domine, Adiuva Me-e-e,
Domine, Domine Deus
Domine, Adiu-Adiuva Me
He-e, he-e, he-e
He-e, he-e, he-e, he-e

If you should go, you should know I love you
If you should go, you should know I’m here
Always be near me, guardian angel
Always be near me, there’s no fear
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no-o

Domine, Domine Deus
Domine, Adiuva Me-e-e,
Domine, Domine Deus
Domine, Adiu-Adiu…
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no
Na na no, na na no, na na no, na na no-o
