In the streets where you have grown
someone robbed you of a precious thing you owned
and left you there, breathing still
tell me Jane, what did you see?
you were busking underneath a yellow tree
hopeless smile, lonesome tears
darker times were out of reach
now they’ve found us with a nightmarish twist
don’t be scared
in my dreams I try to hide
from a monster bereft of any pride
is it me?
is it you?

and all those loco people making up a sad refrain
they have to sing it slowly, in keeping with their empty heads
so prematurely, we forget the things that matter the most
tell me child, what do you seek?
have you found the yellow purple willow tree?
easy now
those crowded streets, like buzzing flies
you set the tone gazing at the velvet skies
haunted rhymes, long goodbyes

all those lonesome people making up a sad refrain
they have to sing it quietly, in keeping with their empty heads
and you come shouting loudly, creeping down this empty road
“I am left with nothing, but I shall try to save my soul”

and all those loco people making up a sad refrain
they have to sing it slowly, in keeping with their empty heads
so prematurely, we disguise ourselves as faceless, silent lambs

In the tower, the lover sighs
“Good sir knight, please take my eyes — I’ve used them”
“Doctor, Doctor, I’m on fire!”
“Oh, I’m sad to hear that, squire — we’re closing”
She snuffs you out like silk
And pours you out like milk
But just before the dawn appears, stealing all the blue away
And just before all your perspectives change
Isn’t it strange?

On the black Fellini sails
Tattered rags that hangs on nails reminds me
You, the mistress of your chair
I, the sergeant of your hair — you blind me
You turn me on like light
A silver liquid light
That emanates inside of you, decorates the room around you
Just before the curtains part for dawn
And everything’s gone

She had one long pair of eyes
She had one long pair of eyes between her
One long pair or eyes
So she could see you

Oh.

On the lone Norwegian shore
Lovers weep for evermore in evening
With the clouds above their heads
Go back to their lonesome beds and leave them
She falls on you like rain
When will she fall again?
Oh just before the dawn appears, draining all the blue away
And just before all your perspectives change
Isn’t that strange?

She had one long pair of eyes
She had one long pair of eyes between her
One long pair of eyes
She had one long pair of eyes between her
One long pair of eyes
Oh, she had one long pair of eyes between her
One long pair of eyes
So she could see you

Oh, oh, oh, oh.

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid, no I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand now by me, stand by me, stand by me-e, yeah

And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh, stand now by me, stand by me, stand by me-e, yeah

Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me

Slowly slowly, with hesitating steps,
Alone he travels with a shattered mind
Back to the old well trodden places
To find the sun in a sunken world

From the beginning, in an unsuspecting age
Without a sound he crawls behind old forms
Then a voice comes to guide him sweetly
To forever lost familiar ports

The birds departed into the night
Carrying love on their wings
Their dreams, like lost stars,
Were scattered forever in the south

So young and with an eager face
Finds the primal rhythm through his games
While music, like a secret flame,
Spreads a sea of color in his eyes

Slowly slowly, with hesitating steps
Finds love makes him so bewildered
And keeps returning to the depths
To find the sun in a sunken world

The birds departed into the night
Carrying love on their wings
Their dreams, like lost stars,
Were scattered forever in the south

Tick, tock, go the death watch beetles in él presidente’s swill
Pop, pop, goes the Cliquot magnum at the reading of the will
Hiss, hiss, goes the snakeskin wallet stuffed with Cruziero bills

Here we come, the jet set junta
Here we come, the jet set junta

Broom, broom, goes the armoured Cadillac through Montevideo
Rat-a-tat goes the sub-machine gun to restore the status quo
Snip, snip, go the tailor’s scissors on the suit in Saville Row

Here we come, the jet set junta
Here we come, the jet set junta

Thud, thud, goes the rubber truncheon on the Indian peon’s heel
Buzz, buzz, go the brass electrodes as the flesh begins to peel
Rattle, rattle, goes the bullet round and round the roulette wheel

Here we come, the jet set junta
Here we come, the jet set junta
