Текст песни:

[Verse 1: Jon Fratelli]
Pull me up a chair and keep your money, there's no guarantees
Won’t you please forgive me but you know cold blooded women make me sneeze
And I’ll kick you out the door if for just one minute you lie
And they’ll come crashing through the wall and leave you crawling til’ the minute you die
Pour yourself a drink or three and maybe we’ll think clearer for a while
You may be an embarrassment but I love the way your clothes are never in style
Livings much too easy, dying would be some kind of bore
Well, you swear that you’re original but I know I’ve seen those jealous eyes before

[Chorus]
So steal the watch from off my wrist
Oh, and shake me by the hand
We could disappear for days
And they wouldn’t understand
Gypsy blood will get you far
And will not miss you when you go
[Verse 2]
Tear another hole in my brown shoes and we can all sleep for a while
Well I told you once before, I love your braces and your hesitant smile
But please don’t get me wrong, it's only right that you can stamp on my heart
Well I’ve seen you and your friends some place, you know I just can’t tell you apart

[Refrain]
And though they'll hunt you like a dog they won’t take you alive
'Cause you made them piles of money stacked up, twenty stories high
And the boys in every bar, they will not miss you when you go

[Chorus]
So steal the watch from off my wrist
Oh, and shake me by the hand
We could disappear for days, and they wouldn’t understand
Gypsy blood will get you far, though it’s far away from me
Look me up when you get home and maybe then we'll see

[Outro]
Though they’ll hunt you like a dog, they won’t take you alive
'Cause you made them piles of money
Stacked up twenty stories high
And the boys from every bar
Well, they’ll miss you when you’re gone
You can tell a heady tale
And we'll all keep screaming on
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la-la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la-la

  • Well you’ve been scratching around in the basement Looking for somewhere to hide Making your own entertainment Trying hard to salvage some pride Well you’re the last of the original orphans And baby you’re a wonderful friend I love the way you say I’m forgiven And that I don’t have to pretend I’m no squeeze Well I’m no Monday’s child Tell me please Half a made up story Of syncopated glory Of when you and the kid ran wild And I know your kind You’ve got a dirty mind You think that half the world’s gone blind Well don’t ya And I can’t get on While you should be just good as gone When everything you say sounds wrong Oh yes it does Oh baby why don’t ya Well you say you only want to amuse me Just flash me that toothless smile You tie me up in words that confuse me And terrorize me all the while Aw you’re so twee And you’re so very dim Every time we meet You tell me of the time When you wish that you was mine And now it hurts you when you try to begin And I know your kind You’ve got a filthy mind You think that half the world’s gone blind Well don’t ya And I can’t get on While you should be just good as gone When everything you say sounds wrong Oh yes it does Oh baby why don’t ya Oh baby why don’t ya Oh I know your kind You’ve got a filthy mind You think that half the world’s gone blind Don’t ya And I can’t get on While you should be just good as gone When everything you say sounds wrong Oh yes it does Oh baby why don’t ya Oh baby why don’t ya Oh baby why don’t ya Oh baby why don’t ya
  • See that girl walking out amongst the fireflies In competition with no vision running clockwise Watch her glide through the panic of the headlights In conversation she’s salvation for the right price Krakatoa Eiffel Tower See how she gets busy in the magic hour Wall of China Frankenstein A miracle of science but a pantomime She’s ambition She’s striptease When she calls your name you fall to your knees She’s indelible Haute couture You’re the malady of which she’s the cure She’s indestructible See that girl making money from the get go Inside the bubble she’s the double of her ego Watch her slide through the panic of the headlights In conversation she’s salvation for the right price Prince of Darkness Chairman Mao Even though you’re dead to her she’ll show you anyhow Queen of England Helen of Troy She doesn’t even mind if you’re a girl or a boy She’s ambition She’s strip tease When she calls your name you fall to your knees She’s indelible Haute couture You’re the malady of which she’s the cure She’s indestructible She’s ambition She’s strip tease When she calls your name you fall to your knees She’s indelible Haute couture You’re the malady of which she’s the cure She’s indestructible She’s indestructible She’s indestructible She’s indestructible She’s indestructible
  • Well I hide like sunshine, see how I climb Howl like a devil til it’s safe enough for me to come home I’ll come home I’ll be there with bells on waiting for relief And I know I can get there, feel everywhere E equals mc squared til it’s safe to come home I’ll come home I’ll be there when you make it worth my while Imagine the scene Us lost in between The north and the south East and west of the strange and obscene I pick you a rose And everything slows I fall to my knees in a squeeze Oh I guess I suppose Ha ha take your sister to the river Don’t forget to give her best wishes from me This life is a complicated business Can I get a witness to my own history Well I feel like nothing, everybody bluffing Sleep til my bones unwind and I’ll dare to come home I’ll come home I’ll be there with my dress hitched up, no joke Imagine the scene Us lost in between The north and the south East and west of the strange and obscene I pick you a rose And everything slows I fall to my knees in a squeeze Oh I guess I suppose Ha ha take your sister to the river Don’t forget to give her best wishes from me This life is a complicated business Can I get a witness to my own history Slow days are too much for me to handle Burning out the candle is the perfect reply Your face has the makings of a scandal From a viper to a vandal wave your troubles goodbye Ha ha take a stroll out of the city Why does only pretty rhyme with city, what a pity Come down from your high horse Mary I don’t mean to be contrary but when was the last time You saw your reflection in the water Don’t you think you ought to check your eyesight sometime You’ll see a reprieve and a repose How long God only knows I guess I suppose Ha ha Ha ha
  • Well I never thought of myself as a subtle kind of man I dreamed I was alive one time before the world began And every time I walk the street my troubles drag my heels I could not pretend that I wasn’t lost in how it feels I’m gonna be your Elvis I’m gonna be your Steve McQueen I was dead long before I was born, my mother did proclaim Send him back to Jesus, tell him I was not to blame Well well well tell me how can I refuse When every angel left in heaven bet that I would lose The sound of frozen bells and horns was all that I could hear And every word that I ignored was ringing in my ear I could not pretend that I was even half amused When all they ever told me left me shaken and confused I’m gonna be your Elvis I’m gonna be your Steve McQueen I’m gonna be the man you could not dream Well I shaked out right on down the road til no one knew my name The future came and went so fast I almost bet the same I slept a guilty sleep for seven years I was a ghost Of everyone I ever loved I loved myself the most When everyone was breaking up I was breaking down I kept myself amused in high heeled shoes and sequin gowns Those voices on the radio, they all just made me numb So I covered up my ears with bandages and bubble gum And I boarded up the windows and I denied that I was me I sold my brains for science and my soul for security Now I’m a walking shadow of the fool I used to be I heard they held my funeral and there was no one there but me I’m gonna be your Elvis I’m gonna be your Steve McQueen I’m gonna be your terrorist I’m gonna be your Steve McQueen I’m gonna be the man you could not dream The man you could not dream The man you could not dream The man you could not dream The man you could not dream
  • [Verse 1] Well, once I was persuaded to open up my head I told them how it was and went and got it wrong instead I said, would you believe me if you only knew I'd been stealing everything, this conversation's through [Pre-Chorus] And the boy cried, hang him at three I saw him on the front page, laughing at me He worked in a fairground in a tall hat He's a liar, he's a liar, a good one at that [Chorus] Say what you wanna, say what you will Write your number on my telephone bill Walk like a monkey, kick like a mule I could be a beggar, but I'd rather be just as cruel [Verse 2] So I told them all I could about what could they expect But I lost my sense of smell and I gained my self-respect They told me I was curious, I told them they were slow And they asked me where I get this stuff, I told them I don't know [Pre-Chorus] And the boy cried whopie-deedee There's a women with a mustache who won't let me be Though she was born on a Monday, she's a hundred and four She's a liar, she's a liar, a little bit more [Chorus] Say what you wanna, say what you will Writes her number on my telephone bill Walk like a monkey, kick like a mule I could be a beggar, but I'd rather be just as cruel [Guitar solo]
