In the corner
Of my eye
I saw you in Rudy's
You were very high

You were high
It was a cryin' disgrace
They saw your face

On the counter
By your keys
Was a book of numbers
And your remedies

One of these
Surely will screen out of sorrow
But where are you tomorrow

I can't cry anymore
While you run around
Break away
Just when it seems so clear
That it's over now
Drink your big black cow
And get out of here

Down to green street
There you go
Lookin' so outrageous
And they tell you so

You should know
How all the pros play the game?
Then you change your name

Like a gangster
On the run
You will stagger homeward
To your precious one

I'm the one
Who must make everything right
Talk it out till daylight

I don't care anymore
Why you run around
Break away
Just when it seems so clear
That it's over now
Drink your big black cow
And get out of here

I can't cry anymore
While you run around
Break away
Just when it seems so clear
That it's over now
Drink your big black cow
And get out of here

So outrageous...
So outrageous...
So outrageous... (fade out)
