There was a bright light, a shattering of shop windows, the bomb in the baby carriage was wired to the radio
When I think back on all the crap I learned in high school, it’s a wonder I can think at all
How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man?
Take me on a trip upon your magic swirlin' ship
You used to be so amused at Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you
The guilty undertaker sighs, the lonesome organ grinder cries, the silver saxophones say I should refuse you
And she aches just like a woman but she breaks just like a little girl
And she says, “Your debutante just knows what you need, but I know what you want”
You say you're lookin' for someone who's never weak but always strong, to protect you and defend you whether you are right or wrong
She said, “It’s really not my habit to intrude, furthermore I hope my meaning won’t be lost or misconstrued”
I’d rather be a hammer than a nail
She said the man in the gabardine suit was a spy, I said, “Be careful his bowtie is really a camera”

Who’ll be my role model now that my role model is gone, gone? He ducked back down the alley with some roly-poly little bat-faced girl
When you’re weary, feeling small, when tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all
Come mothers and fathers throughout the land, and don't criticize what you can't understand
The mama pajama rolled out of bed and she ran to the police station
And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they'd made
They’ll stone ya when you’re at the breakfast table, they’ll stone ya when you are young and able
The wounded man looks up through his one dyin’ eye, says “Wha’d you bring him in here for? He ain’t the guy”
You see me on the street, you always act surprised, you say, 'How are you?' 'Good luck,' but you don't mean it
May God bless and keep you always, may your wishes all come true, may you always do for others, and let others do for you
