Blondie – Rapture lyrics


to toe Dancing... very close Body.
breathing Almost... comatose Wall.
to wall People... hypnotized And.
they're step-ping lightly Hang.
each night in rapture Back.

to back Sacroiliac... Spineless.
movement And... a wild attack Face.
to face Sightless... solitude And.
it's fin-ger pop-ping Twenty.
four hour shopping in rapture Fab.

Five Freddy told me everybody's fly D.
J. Spinning. I, said "My, My, ".Flash
is fast flash, is cool François.
c'est, pas flashe non due And.
you don't stop Sure... shot Go.
out to the parking lot And.
you get in your car and drive real far And.
you drive all night and then you see a light And.
it comes right down and it lands on the ground And.
out comes the man from Mars And.
you try to run but he's got a gun And.
he shoots you dead and he eats your head And.
then you're in the man from Mars You.
go out at night Eatin'... cars You.
eat Cadillacs Lincolns, too Mercurys.
and Subaru And.
you don't stop You.
keep on eatin' cars Then.
when there's no more cars you go out at night And
eat up bars where the people meet Face.
to face Dance.
cheek to cheek One.
to one Man.
to man Dance.
toe to toe Don't.
move too slow Cause
the man from Mars Is
through with cars He's.
eating bars Yeah.
wall, to wall Door.
to door Hall.
to hall He's.
gonna eat 'em all Rap-ture.
pure Take.
a tour Through... the sewer Don't.
strain your brain Paint.
a train You'll.
be singing In... the rain Said.
don't stop Do... the punk rock (Break). Well

now you see what you wanna be Just.
have your party on T V. Cause.
the man from Mars won't eat up bars Where
the T V's. on Now.
he's gone back up to space Where
he won't have a hassle with the human race Say.
you hip hop And.
you don't stop Just.
blast off sure, shot Cause.
the man from Mars stopped eatin' cars And
eatin' bars And
now he only eats guitars Get.
