Laurie Anderson – Sharkey's Night lyrics

Sun's going down.
Like a big bald head.
Disappearing behind the boulevard.
(oooeee.) it's sharkey's night.
Yeah. It's sharkey's night tonight.
And the manager says: sharkey?
He's not at his desk
T now.
(oh yeah.) could I take a message?
And sharkey says: hey, kemosabe!
Long time no see.
He says: hey sport.
You connect the dots.
You pick up the pieces.
He says: you know, I can see two ti
Ctures of myself and there's one in each of you eyes.
And they're doin' everything I do.
Every time I light a cigarette, they light up theirs.
I take a drink and I look in and they're drinkin' t
T's drivin' me crazy.
It's drivin' me nuts.
And sharkey says: deep in the heart of darkest america.
Home of the brave.
He says: listen to my heart beat.
Paging mr. Sharkey.
