    Pushing through the market square
    So many mothers sighing
    News had just come over
    We had five years left to sigh in

    News guy wept and squarely told us
    Earth was really dying
    Cried so much his face was wet
    Then I knew he was not lying

    I heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies
    I saw boys, toys, electric irons and TVs
    My brain hurt like a warehouse, had no room to spare
    I had to cram so much everything in there

    All the fat-skinny people
    And all the tall-short people
    And all the nobody people
    And all the somebody people
    Never thought I'd need so many people

    A girl my age went off her head
    Hit some tiny children
    If the black hadn't a-pulled her off
    I think she would have killed them

    A soldier with a broken arm
    Fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
    A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
    And a queer threw up at the sight of that

    And I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour
    Drinking milk shakes, cold and long
    Smiling and waving and looking so fine
    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 race, the way that you talk
    I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk

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

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

    We've got five years
    Five years, stuck on my eyes
    Five years
    Five years
