Leopardskin Limousines

Text písně Leopardskin Limousines

Noontime the lunch stand tilts 
It's you baby walking in with your stilts 
You don't have to eat here no more 
Cos the sauerkraut's been on the dog-bowl floor 
They made an old film of this 
It shows in Hindu out on Air Pacif 
Shoulda seen it coming 'bout a mile away 
Especially when you don't hear no harmonica play 


What you can see is something you saw 
When you were a little girl 
Some picture passed by the Hays Commission 
About a prairie and a Kansas whirl 
It's true I didn't have a part in it 
I was working out at Disneyworld 
Dressing like a duck, not giving a fuck 
Baby you can dream it's a pearl 


People gonna wanna Xerox you baby 
It's a good thing you ain't a Chickasaw 
Or your soul would take the overnight train 
To Pittsburgh calling Baltimore 
People gonna wanna Xerox you baby 
What will it do to your mind? 
Hang gliding off the Grand Canyon 
In a Coney Island for the blind 


With me, it'd be Charlie Parker, Chevys 
And late night barroom brawls 
With real or imaginary friends and enemies 
Who strike their heads when they fall 
On the chassis of a classic Bull Nose special 
That adorned our living room wall 
Nobody'd be disappointed, if you're the one they wanted 
Blazing out across the waterfall 


People gonna wanna Xerox you baby 
They got a quota to fill 
Got some cat named Juliean 
And a Jap in a pad on the top of the ??? 
People gonna wanna Xerox you baby 
It's a good thing you ain't a Chickasaw 
Or your soul would take the overnight train 
To Pittsburgh calling Baltimore 


Suppose I should drag my stuff on out 
But I don't like the memories 
Found a pint of brandy on top of the fridge 
And it's working like an antifreeze 
So California is running short of water, oh 
The magazine turns in the breeze 
It's the bargain of a lifetime dreaming of gold 
Baby look in the trees 


It's your Chinese year of the animal 
And it must be one that preens 
Those firecrackers going down the hill 
Signify the end of our dreams 


It's gonna be so beautiful 
In those Leopardskin Limousines 
When they spread you out in white 
All over Harpers and Queens
