Neil Young – Bad News Beat lyrics

Have you heard the news
I lost my baby to another man
I got a bulletin of news
Late breaking story
That I don't understand
Should I call her up late
Should I ask her
How she really feels
Should I try to make a date
For a time when we can touch
And feel.

She' so on fire
She's my desire.

I've got the bad news beat
And my reception
Is loud and clear
I've got a
Man in the street
Telling me what
I don't want to hear
I've got an eye in the sky
Taking pictures that
I don't want to see
She's got a brand new guy
Looks like she's
Never coming back
To me.

She' so on fire
She's my desire.

I've got an
Eye in the sky
I've got a
Man in the street
I've got
The bad news beat
I've got
The bad news beat
