She's been told she's very bold
She takes dares seriously
Her face burns bright on our screens tonight
Till we fall asleep deliriously

She does a high kick for a live psychic
She puts her secrets on the line
I love you baby, I love you crazy
I love you till the end of time

If I had my way, if I had my way
I would tear this building down
If I had my way, if I had my way
I would tear this building down

She must be dreaming, the wires are teeming
She leers a smoky sideways glance
I love this town in its evening gown
I love it at ten cents a dance

So I'd turn it white with dynamite
Set the fuse then strike a match
Watch it fall 'neath the wrecking ball
Start over again from scratch

If I had my way, if I had my way
I would tear this building down
If I had my way, if I had my way
I would tear this building down
I would tear this building down

If I had my way, if I had my way
I would tear this building down
If I had my way, if I had my way
I would tear this building down
I would tear this building down
I would tear this building down
