    "Five Years" Lyrics


    Pushing through 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
    Earth she was really dying
    Cried so much his face was wet
    Well, I knew he wasn't lying

    I heard telephones, opera house, favorite melodies
    I saw boys and toys, electric irons, TVs

    My brain felt 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 people
    Christ, I never thought I'd need so many people

    Girl my age went off her head
    She hit some tiny children
    And if the black hadn't pulled her off
    Then I think I know she would have killed them

    I saw a soldier with a broken arm
    Staring to the wheels of a Cadillac
    A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
    And a queer well he threw up at the sight of that

    I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlor
    Drinking milk shakes cold and long
    Smiling and waving and looking so fine
    I don't think you knew you were in this song

    And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
    And I thought of ma and I wanted to get back there
    Your face, your ace, the way that you talk
    Well, I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk

    We got five years, stuck on my eyes
    Five years, what a surprise
    Five years, my brain hurts a lot
    We got five years, that's all we've got

    Five years, that's all we've got
    Five years

    Five years
    Five years

    Five years
    Five years
    Five years
    Five years

    Five years
    Five years
    Five years
    Five years

    Five years
    Five years
    Five years
    Five years

    Five years
