Live 24 Sep 1999 version

[Spoken:] Give me the band!
Here we go! Key of G!
One, two, three, four!

Hey bus driver, keep the change, bless your children, write them names
Don't trust men who walk with canes
Drink this and you'll grow wings on your feet
Broadway Mary, Joan Fontaine, advertiser on a downtown train
Christmas crier bustin' cane, he's in love again

Where dock worker's dreams mix with panther schemes to someday own the rodeo
Tainted women in VistaVision perform for out-of-state kids at the late show

Wizard imps and sweat sock pimps, interstellar mongrel nymphs
Rex said that lady left him limp
L-love's like that
And Queen of Diamonds, Ace of Spades, newly discovered lovers of the Everglades
Take out a full page ad in the trades to announce their arrival

Oh and Mary Lou found out how to cope, she rides to heaven on a gyroscope
Daily News asks her for the dope
She says,
[Crowd:] "Man, the dope's that there's still hope"

Senorita, Spanish rose, wipes her eyes and blows her nose
Uptown in Harlem she throws a rose, to some lucky young matador
Come on, C!

Come on, talk!
