There's a side of you, could bring on homicide
But livin' in a cell changes my view
Maybe your automobile could lose its right front wheel
It happens every day, it could be you
Look back over your shoulder, when you think you're alone, you're not
Each noise, every shadow, look out!
Accidents can happen, it's always in the news
Accidents can happen to you
You read it in the paper, you see it on the tube
Accidents can happen
A little Haitian doll, that looks a lot like you do
A little powdered poison in your tea
Electricity, invisible to see, I'd like to introduce you to Mr. E
A malfunction, who would notice, machines and things get hot
A permanent vacation can be bought
chorus - look out!
Accidents can happen, accidents can happen, accidents can happen to you
chorus - accidents can happen, accidents can happen - look out!
