I live out on the island
And I got problems
My Mom don't like me
'Cause she says I know Sultan [unverified]

Sitting in the car park
In my old Buick Skylark
Getting high, getting high
Getting high on the eight track

Oh, listen to the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track

Oh, it ain't easy
When you gotta survive
Keep on giving death
Just to survive

Oh, get out into the car park
Sitting in my own Buick Skylark
In the dark

Oh, 'n I'll listen to the eight track
Oh, I'll listen to the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track

Yeah, can't wind it back
Listen to the eight track
In between the seats, in the cracks
Listen to the eight track

Oh, sometimes I get a woman in here
And I put on Bruce Springsteen's
New double album

And then just when everything's getting hot
I start turning the volume right down low
Baby, let me snuggle right next to you

You turned to me sweetly
You know what she said
She said, turn up the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track

Oh, listen to the eight track
Ain't no winding it back
Listen to the eight track
Listen to the eight track
Listen to the eight track

There must have been
About a million stories
In New York City
The naked city
And this has been one of them
