    Lyrics

    Getting near the end, now I knew the time was right for a breakdown
    Megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown
    Shot you full of rock and roll, couldn't make your soul
    Didn't burn you to the bone

    Do what the man says
    Take the money and run

    But, I never saw the splendor
    In stealing all your gold
    Taking all your silver
    And doing what I'm told

    I never saw the tears but I knew you cried for rhythm and blues
    Screaming like a wildcat I knew that I had nothing to lose
    Shot you full of rock and roll, couldn't make your soul
    Didn't burn you to the bone

    Do what the man says
    Take the money and run

    But, I never saw the splendor
    In stealing all your gold
    Taking all your silver
    And doing what I'm told

    It's just a breakdown
    Breakdown
    Breakdown
    Breakdown
    Oh, look out

    Shaking like a leaf in the wind see me blowing away
    Never see me fall on the ground till I've had my say
    Shot you full of rock and roll, couldn't make your soul
    Didn't burn you to the bone

    Do what the man says
    Take the money and run

    But, I never saw the splendor
    In stealing all your gold
    Taking all your silver
    And doing what I'm told

    It's just a breakdown
    Breakdown
    Breakdown
    It's just a breakdown
    Oh, look out

    [Incomprehensible]

    Getting near the end, now I knew the time was right for a breakdown
    Megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown
    Shot you full of rock and roll, couldn't make your soul
    Didn't burn you to the bone

    Do what the man says
    Take the money and run

    But, I never saw the splendor
    In stealing all your gold
    Taking all your silver
    And doing what I'm told

    It's just a breakdown
    Breakdown
    Breakdown
    Breakdown
    Oh, look out
