Lyrics for Can't Get It out of My Head by Electric Light Orchestra:

Intro

Verse 1
Midnight on the water
I saw the ocean's daughter
Walking on a wave she came
Staring as she called my name

Chorus
And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my old world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head

Verse 2
Breakdown on the shoreline
Can't move, it's an ebb tide
Morning don't get here 'till night
Searching for her silver light

Chorus
And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my old world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head, no no

instrumental Bridge

Verse 3
Bank job in the city
Robin Hood and William Tell and Ivanhoe and Lancelot, they don't envy me
Sitting 'till the sun goes down
In dreams the world keeps going round and round

Chorus
And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my old world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head, no no

And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my old world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head, no no

No, I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my old world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head, no no no no

Song Facts

The second track on their 4th album – Eldorado, it was ELO’s first top 10 hit in the USA.

The album was a concept album/rock opera that follows “the Dreamer”, the main character of the album; a Walter Mitty-esque figure escapes the boredom of his real life by taking a journey through a dreamland of his creation. “Can’t Get It Out of My Head” is the celebration of this new found freedom.

The album cover featured a scene from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz – Dorothy’s dream.
