Five Years

Pushing throught the market square,
So many mothers sighing
News had just come over,
We had five years left to cry in
News guy wept and told us,
He said earth was really dying
Cried so much his face was wet,
Then I knew he was not lying

I heard telephones, opera house,
Favourite melodies
There were boys, toys,
Electric irons and t.v.’s
My brain hurt like a warehouse,
It had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things
To store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people,
And all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people,
And all the somebody people
I never thought I’d need
So many people

A girl my age went off her head
Hit some tiny children
If the black hadn’t a-pulled her off
I think she would have killed them
A soldier with a broken arm
Fixed his stare to the wheels of a cadillac
A cop knelt
And kissed the feet of a priest
And a queer threw up at the sight of that

Well think I saw you
In an ice-cream parlour
Drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and
Looking so fine,
Don’t think you knew
You were in this song
And it was cold and it rained
So I felt like an actor
And I thought of Ma
And I wanted to get back there
Your face, your race,
The way that you talk
I miss you, you’re beautiful...

We’ve got five years,
Stuck on my eyes
Five years, what a surprise
We’ve got five years,
My brain hurts a lot
Five years, that’s all we’ve got
We’ve got five years...
