Joe Jackson – Just Because... lyrics

Can't drink the water
Can't breathe the air
Can't hide down in the sewer
'cause there's crocodiles down there
My hovel needs a barricade
My pants need an alarm
Need some non-alcoholic whiskey
And some giuliani charm

Just because you're paranoid
Don't mean they're not out to get ya

Don't look at me on the subway
And I won't look at you
Don't touch me with your greasy gloves
And syphilitic flu

Brain cancer causes cell phones
Brain damage causes drugs
I'm staying off the streets 'cause
Gangwar causes thugs

Just because you're paranoid
Don't mean they're not out to get ya
