Bam Salute and all the right and reason now are out of reach
They ran away with beauty baby - out to Bop-A-Re-Bop beach
Bam Salute and when the work is over what can baby do
But undermine and overthrow the cheatin' of the chosen few

Bop-A-Re-Bop beach now baby

Oh first and foremost - ooh you gotta get close
To the money and the madness that are mine - at any time
And last but not least - in the heart of the beast
There's a beauty that was once upon a time - and long ago

Bam Salute and all the just and proper you've been waiting for
Sailed away with virtue baby - out to Bop-A-Re-Bop shore
Bam Salute and now the judge and jury - you can lock away
And all your world's abandoned to - the wages for a working day

Bop-A-Re-Bop shore now baby

Oh first and foremost - ooh you gotta get close
To the money and the madness that are mine - at any time
And last but not least - in the heart of the beast
There's a beauty that was once upon a time - and long ago

Oh the one thing I know - is that wherever you go
You won't find the peace of mind you're looking for - not any more
And since that's the case - put a smile on your face
You can love me - we can live above the law

Oh first and foremost - ooh you gotta get close
To the money and the madness that are mine - at any time
And last but not least - in the heart of the beast
There's a beauty that was once upon a time - and long ago
