Carly Simon – Safe And Sound lyrics

(Carly Simon/Jacob Brackman)

Strange times in Portland, Maine
Lobsters dancing on the dock
Switzerland's been wierd since they unplugged the clocks
Man and a woman living in Brooklyn Heights
Each convinced that the other is in the wrong
Last year the divorce rate trippled in Hong Kong
If through all the madness
We can stick together
We're safe and sound
The world's just insode out and upside down

Flash from Mexico... the TOREADORS have all turned gay
Roman whores have quit to seek a better way
Dope has undermined the morale of the Buckingham Palace guards
Motorcycle gangs ride naked down Hollywood Boulevard
If through all the madness
We can stick together
We're safe and sound
The whole world's just turned inside out and upside down

Marahaj wants you to lead a pilgrimage to Tibet
New York women want me sounding off like a Suffragette
I know that each of us is alone in the end
But the trip still feels less dangerous when you've got a friend
If we stick together
You and me forever
We're safe and sound
The world's just turned inside out and upside down
The world's just turned inside out and upside down
