Letra Five Years


Pushing thru' 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, favorite mel odies
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 peop le
I never thought i'd need so many pe ople

Girl my age went off her head
Hit some tiny children
If the black had not pulled her off
I think she would have killed them


A soldier with a broken arm
Used to stare into the wheels of a cadillac
A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
And a queer threw up at at the sight of that


Think i saw you in an ice cream parlor
Drinking milkshakes 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 a ctor
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 got five years stuck on my eyes
Five years what a surprise we got
We got five years my brain hurts a lot
Five years that's all we got we've got
We go t five years
