    Lyrics

    By the bumper cars
    In the pretty twining light
    I may have gone too far
    I may have gone too much, too long.
    I'm a dull and witless boy

    In the after-bars
    Think I was sullied by a dream
    In the killing jar
    you and me at war, at arms, all falling in embrace

    Tell me why you lied, and what it is you do to keep your eyes all shiny

    A tawny gypsy girl
    sleeping blanketed by stars
    Beneath the tilt-a-whirl
    where we were coyly caught alone
    all fumbling with your blouse

    Tell me why you lied, and what it is you do to keep your eyes all shiny

    In the rollercoaster din
    By the parachutes in saddle shoes you break your shin
    But i have never seen two eyes so shiny

    And the sullen beery swine,
    try to tangle you in sullen beery balls of twine
    Have they ever seen two eyes so shiny?

    The boys in demin vests
    smoking cigarettes between
    their bootblack fingertips
    sweetly tipsy be the half-light
    the light and the half-light

    Tell me why you lied and what it is you do to keep your eyes all shiny
