Was (not Was) – You! You! You! lyrics

747 and an F-14 dogfight
At that line between heaven and earth
Two hundred tourists sucking Bloody Marys
Stewardess smile fades into terror
Charlie Businessman thinks about his dollars
Doubting priests re-arrange their collars
Infants cry but they always do
And all I see is you, all I see is you
You! You! You!

Cockroach pillows in a midnight storm
Yesterday's papers to keep me warm
Streetlight moon with the bulb burnt out
Trashcan rattle and a frozen shout
I'm about to shatter but I never do
'Cause all I see is you
You! You! You!

Let bygones be bygones
In a minute or two I'll be through
I'll be mercury droplets in a poison stew
I'll carry the dawn in a lead-lined quiver
And shoot bolts of lightning in a boiling river
It's you, I see you, you, you!
