Текст песни:

Come now honey I may be just a fool, but I’ve got my principles I’m unlucky You may be alive but you’re not invincible It’s just blindness Kicking up a fuss and it’s not for the first time Oh your highness Someone musta told ya you once were a friend of mine I’ve never been shy but I’ve kept my head down Oh oh oh Knowing about enough to get by this old ghost town Oh oh oh Put on your best dress I’ll take you dancing under the street lights Oh you’re charmless You ain’t too pretty but I’ve seen ya tonight It’s just kindness I was brought up well and I won’t leave you crying Oh your highness You ain’t too bright but as long as you’re trying I’ll do my best to keep my head down Oh oh oh Putting my brains to the test in this old ghost town Oh oh oh I’ve never been shy but I’ve kept my head down Oh oh oh Knowing about enough to get by this old ghost town Oh oh oh I’ll do my best to keep my head down Oh oh oh Putting my brains to the test this in old ghost town Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh

  • Well I don't know who you are Я не знаю, кто ты, And I don't care where you've been Мне все равно, где ты была, Please just take this deadbeat soul Просто прошу тебя: поручись за эту бестолковую душу, Let him keep the hearts he stole Сохрани все сердца, которые он разбил. And all those little lies Эта бесконечная ложь They told ya in disguise Была так хорошо замаскирована, They got you through those lonely hours Что помогла тебе справиться с одиночеством, Made you think the world was ours И ты даже верила, что весь мир принадлежит нам. I'm the man who shot the moon and cried Я из тех, кто целит в луну и плачет оттого, что не может попасть, Let those thieves and bastards all collide Так что пусть все эти подлецы и воры уничтожат друг друга. Take these words and burn them if you don't mind Пожалуйста, забудь все мои слова — сожги их. Oh sweetheart these nights were made for me Милая, такие ночи, как эта, просто созданы для меня, Still so far from where I long to be Но все равно это совсем не то, что мне нужно. You said it from the start Но ты же знала это с самого начала: Rock 'n' roll will break your heart Рок-н-ролл разобьет тебе сердце. There's a holy roller sign Мне как будто въяве показали, что будет дальше, And a chance she won't be mine И, вероятно, мы больше никогда не будем вместе: There's no teenage dreams to fill Не осталось уже подростковых фантазий - Break my heart I know you will Ты разобьешь мне сердце, даже если не хочешь этого. And we'll tumble down the street И мы будем шататься по улицам, Sleep alone in my back seat Спать на заднем сидении моей машины, Oh all that jealous talk we made А все наши ссоры из-за ревности Strung out in the soul parade Выстроятся, как на параде, чтобы мучить нас. I'm the man who shot the moon and cried Я из тех, кто целит в луну и плачет оттого, что не может попасть, Let those thieves and bastards all collide Так что пусть все эти подлецы и воры уничтожат друг друга. Take these words and burn them if you don't mind Пожалуйста, забудь все мои слова — сожги их.

  • Well she came round here and nobody could speak her name And she talked in circles like she needed someone else to blame And everybody prayed she would go back from where she came The sun didn’t shine and for forty days all it did was rain Well the lights burned out, and the circus they got out of town And the priest’s last rites were the only words that could be found The loverboys couldn’t tell the time ’cause the phones were down The poets couldn’t find the words to describe the sound Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Came, she saw, she made them cry Lost their hearts but don’t know why Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Spoke the words and begged to die Sold her dream for you and I Well the good girls danced with the devil in the open yard (Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie) But the blood from their thighs was the only thing that made him hard (Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie) She couldn’t read the signs on the wall where they had her scarred She was the one time lover of a victim of the avant-garde Well it was said she was raised by the praise of a furious man (Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie) But she couldn’t tell you how or when that it all began (Jeannie, Jeannie, oh Jeannie, Jeannie) A woman has to feel alive any way she can She don’t plead dumb or pretend that she don’t understand Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Came, she saw, she made them cry Lost their hearts but don’t know why Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Spoke the words and begged to die Sold her dream for you and I Well she came round here and nobody could speak her name And she talked in circles like she needed someone else to blame And everybody prayed she would go back from where she came The sun didn’t shine and for forty days all it did was rain Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Came, she saw, she made them cry Lost their hearts but don’t know why Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie Nitro Spoke the words and begged to die Sold her dream for you and I
  • Well the room was pink and the signs were serious Paperback dolls being slammed delirious Feeling like a joke in the bar underneath And it was Saturday night in the year of the good thief Well I tumbled up the stairs the wrong way ’round I hit my head on the ceiling when my feet hit the ground And then the big dumb blonde in the gold fish bowl Cried Ella’s in the band but she’s got no soul! My friend John was a serious one Buttoned up the back and a job half done Lazy old boy when the good girls turn His teeth get itchy and his rubber soles burn When will he ever learn? Well the night was spent and my money was young And then I had to get home before my neck was wrung And everybody danced in the same old way And if I’m feeling old and desperate I’ll be back some day My friend John was a serious one Buttoned up the back and a job half done Lazy old boy when the good girls turn His teeth get itchy and his rubber soles burn When will he ever learn?
  • Well you got it so good You live for the action Used to be a has been Now you got yourself some satisfaction A dog in a bag and a bone But you’re lost in the rain 21 million miles from home You got brand new shoes A healthy fixation Atomic heart And a two for one education You’re breaking my heart all the way With your dog in a bag I need your badness just to get through the day It’s a million o’clock, too hot to sleep A rotten taste in my mouth and my eyes are deep There’s nothing much really going on up here I’m holding on for dear life and one more beer I guess you could say it’s a sick little show A bottle of troubles and a bed full of woe It’s easy to see without looking too far You’d have to be a saint to be as sick as you are Half the world’s asleep The rest of them are dreaming God forbid if you forget to close the door as you’re leaving I hate to see you in a bind With your dog in a bag Sleeping next to your ridiculous mind With a dog in a bag Sleeping next to your ridiculous mind With a dog in a bag Sleeping next to your ridiculous mind
  • [Verse 1] Well it's a big, big city and it's always the same Can never be too pretty, tell me your name Is it out of line if I were simply bold and say "Would you be mine?" Because I may be a beggar and you may be the queen I know I may be on a downer, I'm still ready to dream Though it's three o'clock, the time is just the time it takes for you to talk [Hook] So if you're lonely Why'd you say you're not lonely? Oh you're a silly girl, I know I heard it so It's just like you to come and go And know me, no you don't even know me You're so sweet to try, oh my, you caught my eye A girl like you is just irresistible [Verse 2] Well it's a big, big city and the lights are all out But it's as much as I can do you know to figure you out And I must confess My heart's in broken pieces and my head's a mess And it's 4 in the morning and I'm walking along Beside the ghost of every drinker here who's ever done wrong And it's you, woo-hoo, that's got me going crazy for the things you do [Hook] So if you're crazy, I don't care, you amaze me But you're a stupid girl, oh me, oh my, you talk I die, you smile, you laugh, I cry And only, a girl like you could be lonely And it's a crying shame, if you would think the same A boy like me is just irresistible [Outro] So if you're lonely, why'd you say you're not lonely Oh you're a silly girl, I know I heard it so It's just like you to come and go And know me, no you don't even know me You're so sweet to try, oh my, you caught my eye A girl like you is just irresistible
