    Lyrics

    I see a million walk the city mile
    The ticker tape kings and the juveniles
    Will anybody tell me which way to go?
    Will anybody come back on the C.B radio?

    And I'm counting the stars, and the telegraph poles
    And each one represents the hope of a soul
    You'd think that god wouldn't be so hard
    When you see all the little children running,
    Running in the backyard

    On a Mississippi gourd, with a Sub-Sahra song
    Somebody is wailing in the financial district sun
    Can anybody feel the distance to the Nile?
    I wanna live, and I wanna dance awhile

    Gonna make like Eddie on my rockabilly train
    Gonna beat out the blues on my ball and chain
    Oh you cant pull a hold-up with a Be-Bop gun
    There's People living now, who ain't got no heart,
    And ain't never had none

    Down on the border they crawl all the way
    To get a clip of living with a clean-all spray
    Can anybody feel the distance to the Nile?
    I wanna live, I wanna dance awhile

    You cant pull a hold-up with a Be-Bop gun
    There's People living now, who ain't got no heart,
    And ain't never had none

    I hear a payphone ringing out on murder mile
    And the sucker who picks up, gets his number dialed
    And all the sparkling waters that ever flowed
    Could never wash down this town
    So clean that it glowed
    And I need to see in an X-Ray style
    I need some rock art that don't come in phial
    Can anybody feel the distance to the Nile?
    I wanna dance, I wanna dance awhile
