MODERN TIMES


Cinderella, she seems so easy
"It takes one to know one," she smiles
And puts her hands in her back pockets
Bette Davis style
And in comes Romeo, he's moaning
"You Belong to Me I Believe"
And someone says," You're in the wrong place, my friend
You better leave"
And the only sound that's left
After the ambulances go
Is Cinderella sweeping up
On Desolation Row

You gotta work every night, baby
stand still
and
strange
in a corner of the avenue
cold and hot
in or out
You, too, do not belong here...
Get your money
pack your bag
and leave...
Return to your Pernambuco village..,
while the sun is still shining
over the sea
...
