Listen to my heartbeat
Yeah, all fall down
Someone help me off of the ground
Listen to my heartbeat
Yeah, all fall down
Someone help me off of the ground

Nelson and Starr
He's got ten grandkids, she's the third missus
He grooves around intensive care
Strutting his stuff

He's got the perfect mullet hanging down his back
And Starr walks in, gives a little wiggle
Makes old Nelson grin
He tucks me in, touches my feet
"Hey buddy, you know you got a slow heartbeat"

Listen to my heartbeat
Yeah, listen to my heartbeat
And the marching band plays along
Plays the morphine song on charity ward
Yeah, the marching band plays its song

Yeah, all fall down
Someone help me off of the ground
Yeah, all fall down
Someone help me off of the ground

And opposite me Brenda the alkie coughs so deep
It's the drugs and the drink, it could happen to anyone
Sure makes me think
And the bed beside her is full of cables and leaves
Nobody visits, nobody grieves

Listen to my heartbeat
Yeah, listen to my heartbeat

Nelson and Starr
He's got ten grandkids, she's the third missus
Starr takes some blood out of my arm
Rolls me over just like that

Listen to my heartbeat, slow but clean
While Brenda the alkie looks so mean
They wheel her out, she starts to cry
"If I don't get better, I'm gonna die
I'll go cold turkey till I'm clean
I'll go to jail but you get the morphine"

Listen to my heartbeat
Yeah, listen to my heartbeat
And the marching band song
Plays in the morgue at the charity ward
Yeah, the marching band plays its song

Yeah, all fall down
Someone help me off of the ground
Listen to my heartbeat
Yeah, all fall down
Someone help me off of the ground
