In the moonlight
Fighting with the night
It's a rip-off
Kissing all the slain
I'm bleeding in the rain
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
Rocking in the nude
I'm feeling such a dude
It's a rip-off

Dancing in the dark
With the tramps in the park
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
See your baby's stud
Sliding in the mud
It's a rip-off

Bleached on the beach
I want to tickle your peach
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
See the girl dance
In her man-skin pants
It's a rip-off

Terraplane Tommy
Wants to bang your gong
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
Gypsy girl's good
People treat her like a fool
It's a rip-off
The President's weird
He's got a burgundy beard
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
I'm the King of the highway
I'm the Queen of the hop
You should see me
At the Governors ball
Doing the rip-off bop
I'm a social person
I'm the creature in disguise
There's a man with a whip
On his silver lip
Living inside my eyes
I'm the cat from the alley
I'm the fleetfoot vodoo man
There's very little that's ever said
All of which I understand
Caught like a skunk
In space and time
It's a rip-off
If it's her's
Well it must be mine
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off

    "rips off" suggests that everything we experience is an irresistible omnipresent illusion and that somehow marc is above it all, with some kind of supernatural powers.
