(jagger/richards)Here’s father, his heart screwed onYes, here he’s got it I’m sure’cause he lost his life in an accidentFound his heart in the man next doorWhat exactly’s gonna happenWhen they do transplant the brainWill my borrowed brain still compute the sameOr will my daughter suffer so much moreHere comes the girl, she’s got her head screwed onBut it ain’t screwed on rightHer ambition is to be a prostituteBut the breaks just weren’t rightWhat exactly’s gonna happen, tell meWhen her father finds outThat his virgin daughter has bordello dreamsAnd that he’s the one she wants to try outYeahThere’s ma, she’s living dangerouslyIt’s a cinch she’ll try it anything twiceShe thinks she can run right to the whirlpool’s edgeAnd stop herself just in timeWhat exactly’s gonna happenWhen she finally fizzles outThe lovers will just be sucked intoTo see what the colours of death are all aboutHere’s the son, has his legs a-screwed onYeah, they’re screwed on pretty tightBut his brain is loose and it ain’t no useHe’s already lost the fightWhat exactly’s gonna happenWhen he’s finally realizedThat he can’t play his guitar like e.g. jimOr write st. augustine if he triedThat’s what happensWhen a family finds outThat they’ve been in orbit now for a thousand yearsAnd need a thousand more to climb out
