De Chirico Street
I was followed home by a weighing machine On DeChirico Street It said, "What do you know?" I said, "What do you mean?" On DeChirico Street And the numbers turned to fingers 5 And the fingers turned to flies And they buzzed around your portrait I was followed home by a seventy-three On DeChirico Street It was advertising you and me 10 On DeChirico Street In the photograph, we kissed The conductor's name was Milo As the bus went past, he hissed, "Fleshhead!" 15 A hyena sprang, she was on all fours On DeChirico Street And her outline showed through a strip of gauze On DeChirico Street If you meet me by the clock 20 I can kiss you through the window 'Cause you love that sudden shock Don't moralize Get on with it You can go 25 Now you've discharged all your responsibilities N-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-now now now On DeChirico Street Ah, ah As the sundial fell, it was oh so black 30 On DeChirico Street And the lizard's tail slithered in the crack On DeChirico Street And the pale yellow globes Flickered softly through the window 35 As you paced the night with strobes It's the darkest dream in the whole wide world On DeChirico Street It's a bat, it's a bat, it's a bat, it's a girl On DeChirico Street 40 In my pocket, nightmares dress I said, "Jasper, this one's evil" But I love my lioness... My lioness! Ah, ah. Mmm. Mmm. 45 Ah.
