Sparks – An American Trilogy lyrics
Zoo time is she and you time
The mammals are your fav'right type
You'd better want her tonight.
Heart beat
Increasing heart beat
You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos
Elephants and tacky tigers.
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave.
Flying
Domestic flying
And when the stewlrdess is near
Do not show any fear.
Heart beat
Increasing heart beat
You are a khaki-coloured bombadier
It's Hiroshima that you're nearing.
This town ain't big enough for the both of us

Daily except for Sunday
You dawdle into the cafe
Where you meet her each day.
Heart beat
Increasing heart beat
As twenty cannibals have hold of you
They need their protein just like you do.
This town ain't big enough for the both of us

Shower
Another shower
You've got to look your best for her
And be clean ev'rywhere.
Heart beat
Increasing heart beat
The rain is pouring on the foreign town
The bullets cannot cut you down.
This town ain't big enough for the both of us

Census
The latest census
There'll be more girls who live in town
Though not enough to go round.
Heart beat
Increasing heart beat
You know that:
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
I ain't gonna leave
