Hurray For The Riff Raff – The Body Electric lyrics

Said you gonna shoot me down,
Put my body in my river.
Shoot me down,
Put my body in my river
While the whole world sings,
Sing it like a song
The whole world sings
Like there's nothing going wrong!
He shot her down, he put her body in the river
He covered her up, but I went to get her
And I said, 'my girl what happened to you now? '
I said, 'my girl, we gotta stop it somehow! '
Uh, uh, uh, uh

Chorus:
Oh, and tell me what's the man with a rifle in his hand
Gonna do for a world that's some sick and sad?
Tell me what's the man with a rifle in his hand
Gonna do for a world that's gone mad?

He's gonna shoot me down, put my body in the river
Cover me up with the leaves of September
Like an old sad song, you heard it all before
Well, Delia's gone, but I'm setting the score.
Uh, uh, uh, uh

Chorus:
Oh, and tell me what's the man with a rifle in his hand
Gonna do for a world that's some sick and sad?
Tell me what's the man with a rifle in his hand
Gonna do for a world that's gone mad?
