Just Because... Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

Cant drink the water
Cant breathe the air
Cant hide down in the sewer
'Cause theres crocodiles down there

My hovel needs a barricade
My pants need an alarm
Need some non-alcoholic whiskey
And some giuliani charm

Just because youre paranoid
Dont mean theyre not out to get ya
Just because youre paranoid
Dont mean theyre not out to get ya

Dont look at me on the subway
And I wont look at you
Dont touch me with your greasy gloves
And syphilitic flu

Brain cancer causes cell phones
Brain damage causes drugs
Im staying off the streets cause
Gang war causes thugs

Just because youre paranoid
Dont mean theyre not out to get ya
Just because youre paranoid
Dont mean theyre not out to get ya

Just because youre paranoid
Dont mean theyre not out to get ya
Just because youre paranoid
Dont mean theyre not out to get ya
