There Should Be Unicorns

The Flaming Lips

There Should Be Unicorns Lyrics

[Verse 1: Wayne Coyne]
Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
It should be loud as fuck
Hope the swans don't die
There should be burning sun
And naked slaves
And if the police show up
We'll give them so much money it will make them cry
And forgive us

[Chorus: Wayne Coyne]
Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
Not the green eyes
Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
Not the green eyes
Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
Not the green eyes

[Verse 2: Wayne Coyne]
Yeah, there should be day glow strippers
Ones from the Amazon
Some edible butterflies
We put ketchup on
Some motorcycle stunts
That always crash
And if the police show up
We'll bribe them into helping us steal the light of love
From the rainbow sluts that live next door

[Chorus: Wayne Coyne]
Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
Not the green eyes
Yeah, there should be unicorns
The ones with the purple eyes
Not the green eyes

[Outro: Reggie Watts]
At first there should be unicorns. The ones with the purple eyes, not the ones with green eyes. Whatever they give them, they shit everywhere. And it would be great if the moon was almost down. Like in a very red/orange state. Let's leave it like that for at least three hours, hovering just above the horizon. And if the police show up, we will give them so much money that they can retire from their shitty, violent jobs and live the greatest life they've ever lived. And we will be high and the love generator will be turned up to its maximum. And we’ll get higher, when at last, the sun comes up in the morning and we will collapse under the weight of the ancient earth. And it will be inside me and it will be inside you. And it will be the end of the world and the beginning of a new love

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    In an interview with The Future Heart, frontman Wayne Coyne said:

    It is meant to be a kind of ‘wish list’ that someone is reading off to a party planner.. ‘At first there should be unicorns..’ as if unicorns are something you can just order to have at your party.

    We felt like maybe it needed an emotional hook in it and we put in the part that is now like a chorus ‘yeah there should be unicorns the ones with the purple eyes.. not the greeneyes,’ the lyrics implying that you can choose which unicorns you prefer.. the purple eyed ones or pink-eyed ones or green eyed ones.. Ha..And do I believe it just built from there and we couldn’t stop ourselves from turning it into a song..
