CONAN: PLEASE WELCOME NEKO CASE!
NEKO CASE:
LAST NIGHT, LATE, I WAS WATCHING IT SNOW
IT ALWAYS GOES SIDEWAYS IN THE CITY
IT COMES RIGHT OUT FROM THE STREET LIGHTS, YOU KNOW
PUMPED OUT BY AN ENGINE DEEP INSIDE THE EARTH'S CORE
IT GOES SIDEWAYS IN THE CITY
COVER THE SHADES AND ERASE THE DAY
THIS COULD BE ANY EVENING IN ANY PLACE
THE BLIZZARD BLOWS FROM LEFT TO RIGHT
WHICH IS FUNNY 'CAUSE THE PIANO'S PLAYING SUMMERTIME FROM 1935
SO SOUNDS THE ALARM OF RAGTIME
IT'S RAGTIME KEEPING TIME
BRAVE TO THE WAVES OF ITS RESIDUE
IT'S LAUGHTER FROM A MARBLED ROOM
WHITE CROWNED SOUNDS OF POSSIBLE SOUND THAT LURES ME
THAT SAYS "DON'T YOU HURRY, DON'T YOU WORRY KID
WE'LL BE SEEING YOU, WE'LL SEE YOU WHEN YOU'RE READY"
BA-BA-BA-BA, BA-BA-BA DA-DA-DA, BA-BA-BA
RAGTIME TURNING OUT THE SUN AND MOON
ITS GRAVITY IS SOOTHING
IT WINDS ME IN A SLEEP COCOON
REVEAL MYSELF WHEN I'M READY
I'LL REVEAL MYSELF INVINCIBLE SOON
BUSH ADMINISTRATION BUSH ADMINISTRATION
BA-BA-BA-BA-BA-BA BA-BA-
I AM ONE AND THE SAME
I AM USEFUL AND STRANGE
I AM ONE AND THE SAME
I AM USEFUL AND STRANGE
THERE'S A WISDOM THAT'S WOE AND A WOE THAT IS MADNESS
THERE'S A WISDOM THAT'S WOE AND 
BA-BA-BA-BA, BA-BA-BA DA-DA-DA, 
BA.
[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
CONAN: I LOVE THAT SONG.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
THAT WAS GREAT!
