You have to do it running
'Cause you don't mind seeing yourself in a picture

Showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters
You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
Under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights

Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch
Into the un-magnificent lives of adults
Make up something to believe in your heart of hearts
So you swear, you just saw a feathery woman

Showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters
You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
Under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights

Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch
Into the un-magnificent lives of adults
You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
Under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights

Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch
Into the un-magnificent lives of adultsYou have to do it running
'Cause you don't mind seeing yourself in a picture

Showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters
You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
Under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights

Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch
Into the un-magnificent lives of adults
Make up something to believe in your heart of hearts
So you swear, you just saw a feathery woman

Showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters
You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
Under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights

Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch
Into the un-magnificent lives of adults
You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
Under the silvery, silvery Citibank lights

Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wanna watch
Into the un-magnificent lives of adults
