In the moonlight
Fighting with the night
It's a rip-off
Kissing all the slain
I'm bleeding in the rain

It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
Rocking in the nude
I'm feeling such a dude

It's a rip-off
Dancing in the dark
With the tramps in the park

It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
See your baby's stud

Sliding in the mud
It's a rip-off
Bleached on the beach
I want to tickle your peach

It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
See the girl dance
In her man-skin pants

It's a rip-off
Terraplane Tommy
Wants to bang your gong

It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
Gypsy girl's good
People treat her like a fool

It's a rip-off
The President's weird
He's got a burgundy beard

It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
I'm the King of the highway

I'm the Queen of the hop
You should see me
At the Governors ball
Doing the rip-off bop
I'm a social person

I'm the creature in disguise
There's a man with a whip

On his silver lip
Living inside my eyes
I'm the cat from the alley
I'm the fleetfoot vodoo man
There's very little that's ever said

All of which I understand
Caught like a skunk
In space and time
It's a rip-off
If it's her's

Well it must be mine
It's a rip-off
Such a rip-off
