Pushing through the market square,
News had just come over,

Earth was really dying
Then I knew he was not lying
I heard telephones, opera house, favorite melodies
My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
I never thought I'd need so many people
A girl my age went off her head,
If the black hadn't a-pulled her off,

Fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
And a queer threw up at the sight of that
I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlor,
Smiling and waving and looking so fine,

And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk
We've got five years, stuck on my eyes
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot

Five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, that's all we've got
We've got five years, stuck on my eyes
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot

Five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, that's all we've got
Five years
Five years
