you’re gonna
meet death
out there

you could die
in a place where
someone else has pissed
or where no one
has ever died

tra-la-la & boom

man going by
on his bicycle
piano in his apartment
he plays at night
all the way to dawn sometimes

tra-la-la & boom
tra-la-la & fade

a man & his missus
in the apartment below
throw dice on an enamel top table
the clatter & rattle going off
into eternity

Sunken ships--the rats calling the place home didn't make it out either--the oldest daughter didn't like me to begin with and Momma didn't know what to do with my love in the corral--I decided not to wait around for the movie and headed for Arizona where I met Jaci--she liked me pretty much and was into history--I told her I would meet her in the Indian ruins that night for love in the dust--

she said, "oooooooooo that makes me so wet!"

How did I do, Jay? Is this what you were looking for?
