Текст песни:

Well let me tell you something
Let me tell you so
This could be the one thing
That you really need to know
You gotta stop once in a while
And shake off that face of yours

Cause nothing comes easy
Oh it just comes free
You could sing it better
If you sing for me, oh sister

Well I cannot claim
This advice as my own
I learnt it in the gutter
One night crawling home
She said don't you look rediculous
I checked her out meticulously

And I would've stopped to argue
But my teeth were broke
I said I'd love to condradict you
But my life's a joke, oh sister

And she said I'm no genius and I've lost myself
The books are on the table, and the secret's on the shelf
And it's a one time, keep it slow
Wind 'em up and here we go
Get it right today
And you may still be here tomorrow
Some said she was saintly
Some she was a swinger
Me, I only knew her as the Acid Jazz Singer, come on

Well I'm a lucky man
But maybe so is she
And maybe this is just the way it has to be
It's all based on speculation
It's a crazy my occupation to me
And though I didn't much believe her
I was bound to call
I really didn't wanna miss a single thing at all
Oh sister

And she said I'm no genius and I've lost myself
The books are on the table, and the secret's on the shelf
And it's a one time, keep it slow
Wind 'em up and here we go
Get it right today
And you may still be here tomorrow

Some said she was saintly
Some she was a swinger
Me, I only knew her as the Acid Jazz Singer, come on

And she said I'm no genius and I've lost myself
The books are on the table, and the secret's on the shelf
And it's a one time, keep it slow
Wind 'em up and here we go
Get a ride today
And you may be here tomorrow
Some said she was saintly
Some she was a swinger
Me, I only knew her as the Acid Jazz Singer, come on

I haven't seen her lately
Well, I'll have to ring her
Put your hands together for the Acid Jazz Singer, come on

  • Everybody knows when tell me again Fatten up the pig and baby let’s pretend That I could see the joke At the beginning or the end Let me know the secret honey then I’ll be your best friend Alakazam, Kalakazoo, Salaam Meet me in the jungle where they never give a damn If your clothes don’t fit or if your marriage is a sham They never weigh a woman By the kilo or the gram If you go to make it baby make it real Get up of your knees and tell me how do you feel? Nothing untrue can ever be revealed Cover my eyes this is getting surreal Written in the stars is a great big lie That you’ll never get to see Until the minute that you die And by the time you get to heaven Your a whole another guy It’s maybe just as well that you never had a third eye Little pig little pig lock your door Take the gun from the wall And then even up the score I don’t even know who the sun shines for And I don’t believe what I believe any more If you got to make it baby make it real Get up off your knees and tell me how do you feel? Nothing untrue can ever be revealed Cover my eyes this is getting surreal Hollywood death smile flash me a grin Laughing gas don’t cut it when you’re rotten within Nothing untrue can ever be revealed Cover my eyes this is getting surreal Well it’s hotdog logic in a grapefruit time Flutter your eyelids and honey you’ll be fine Throw me your sins and I’ll keep them with mine You got a headful of stone and that’s something divine Get a little head rush, swallow a fly Cut off your memories and hang them out to dry It was a beautiful noise but now it’s tumbling by I was never here there was no you and I If you got to make it baby make it real Get up off your knees and tell me how do you feel? Nothing untrue can ever be revealed Cover my eyes this is getting surreal Hollywood death smile flash me a grin Laughing gas don’t cut it when you’re rotten within Nothing untrue can ever be revealed Cover my eyes this is getting surreal
  • 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 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
  • There’s a snakeskin bedroom Bang in the middle Of a funny little place called Hell, oh well Everybody there’s got trouble by the dozen It’s a lonely little place to dwell Hope I don’t make the trip through the floor You told me once «I want it but you wanted it more» I know kung fu you know nothing But together we can make it real, good deal Kicking our own way out of every prison With my brains and your high heels Love your myth coupled with your vast ocean Take my eyes as the prize for your devotion Oh take me to El Ray I got this real need to pray Come find me where the vampires All keep their heads on display I’m a new man living in a old skin I’ve been dead to you ever since Berlin Oh teacher I’m restless just say the word And I’ll be blameless Make me a saint I’ll be the voice of restraint I’ll take their bullwhips and stones Without a hint of complaint I met God in Dogtown Isn’t it a funny thing to know you’ve died? Dove’s cried Angels wept just as if I was a brother And sang the blues for my bride I’ve been keeping time in a skeleton soul band Don’t it make your heart just bleed? Indeed Keeping my nose clean hoping I can crash land Back where I’ve got mouths to feed I’ll be home once I’ve paid for my confusion You’ll see me in the fires Of your own disillusion
  • She said "I'm Rosie" Она сказала: "Я Рози". - I said "I thought you were Lucy" "А я думал, ты Люси". — She said "No Rosie, I told you so" "Да нет же, я Рози, я же тебе говорила! Was here with your sister Я была здесь с твоей сестрой, But she's going out the back Но она уже ушла". I wanna dance and have fun y'know Да мне все равно, я просто хочу потанцевать и повеселиться. Of all the shitty little places Забавно, что из всех мерзких мест, где я бываю, I meet you it's here Я встретил тебя именно здесь And I'm freaking out Да еще и веду себя донельзя странно. I heard you got a brand new name Слышал, ты тут неплохо известна, Selling Es in the dark Продаешь тайком колеса. But hey it's nothing to shout about Хотя, да, об этом лучше помалкивать. Don't just say yes to tease me Не соглашайся только для того, чтобы подразнить меня, Do your up most to please me Лучше постарайся мне угодить. I don't mean to be sleazy Я не говорю, что ты должна делать что-то непристойное — Being you can't be easy Понимаю, тебе и так нелегко, When you're creepin' up the backstairs Когда ты тихонько пробираешься по черной лестнице, Mother's nightmares Не можешь нормально войти в дом, Falling in the front door Потому что тебя караулит мать — My my Кошмар! Climbing in the window Давай, лезь в окно, Get dressed, let's go Одевайся по-быстрому, Take your brother's car keys Прихвати ключи от машины брата Bye bye И поедем. Well I see your yellow fingers Ну да, я вижу твои желтые пальцы, And your crucifix bones Твои кости — такие, будто тебя распяли All covered in cellophane И все покрытые какой-то пленкой. Was there when your best friend said И я слышал, как твой лучший друг сказал: "Sweetheart, I'm just here to get drunk again" "Милая, я пришел сюда только для того, чтобы снова напиться". I wouldn't move if I was you Знаешь, на твоем месте я бы остался, I wouldn't wanna caught when the lights go out Хотя не хотелось бы, чтобы меня схватили, как только стемнеет. She said "You think you're so special" Она сказала: "Думаешь, ты особенный?" — I said "Sunshine I'm just just bored "Да нет, солнышко, просто мне очень скучно, I'm just checkin' out" и я зашел сюда, посмотреть, что тут делается". Don't just say yes to tease me Не соглашайся только для того, чтобы подразнить меня, Do your up most to please me Лучше постарайся мне угодить. I don't mean to be sleazy Я не говорю, что ты должна делать что-то непристойное — Being you can't be easy Понимаю, тебе и так нелегко, When you're creepin' up the backstairs Когда ты тихонько пробираешься по черной лестнице, Mother's nightmares Не можешь нормально войти в дом, Falling in the front door Потому что тебя караулит мать — My my Кошмар! Climbing in the window Давай, лезь в окно, Get dressed, let's go Одевайся по-быстрому, Take your brother's car keys Прихвати ключи от машины брата Bye bye И поедем.
