Hey let's party, let's get down, let's turn the radio on 
This is the meltdown 
Get out the camera, take a picture 
The drag queens and freaks are all out on the town 

And Cowboy Jane's in bed 
Nursing a swollen head 
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov 
Don't like the scene anyhow 

I dropped acid on a Saturday night just to see what the fuss was about 
Now there goes the neighborhood 
The photo chick made to look sickly is standing in her panties, in the shower 
She plays guitar in the bathroom while the police dust her mother's plastic flowers 

And Schoolboy John's in jail 
Making a killing through the U.S. Mail 
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov 
Don't like the scene anyhow 

I dropped acid on a Saturday night just to see what the fuss was about 
Now there goes the neighborhood 
Neighborhood
Now there goes the neighborhood 

This is the movie of the screenplay of the book about a girl who meets a junkie 
The messenger gets shot down just for carrying the messages to a flunky 
We can't be certain who the villains are 'cause everyone's so pretty 
But the after party's sure to be a wing-ding as it moves into your city, oh 

Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov 
Don't like the scene anyhow 
I dropped acid on a Saturday night just to see what the stink was about 

Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov 
Don't like the scene anyhow 
I dropped acid on a Saturday night just to see what the fuss was about 
There goes the neighborhood 

Oh, 
Now there goes the neighborhood
