Do You

Performances (12)

Hey you say you like the way 
The cowboys tip their hats and say 
"How's it goin', ma'am?" 
But you're never quite clear 
If their glares are sincere 
Or really only just second hand 
To you it's all roses 
It's a lavender haze 
The man is a marvel 
It's a shame about his brains 
But that's okay you say, 
"He's got straight teeth 
And it's good sex"

You look to the sky 
You look to the man 
You claim innocence 
And not to understand 
Or do you? 
Do you?

There's a big man wearing a white suit 
And patent leather shoes 
He wants to take his monkeys 
To see the kids at the zoo 
Cause the gypsy on the corner said, 
"Hey, mister, you can't lose" 
And it's your first day at the track 
You feel that heat on your back 
We all want to find a way 
To beat the system 
Find some rhythm in the madness

Get down on your knees and pray 
Say, "I'll do whatever you want, God 
Just let me have my way" 
Well will you? 
Will you?

Come on all you merry men 
Rally your cry 
Dance with the devil 
For tomorrow we'll surely 
Hey, hey, blow the men down

You with all your cigarettes 
And cool stares 
Filled with blank glares 
And loaded regrets 
Just like the girls today 
With nothing to say 
No more pigtails and pony rides 
They're sophisticated 
They sip on lattes and have their eyes 
On a bigger prize

We shake our fists and say 
"Well, good golly we're mad 
That God kills children 
With our very own hands" 
We claim innocence 
And not to understand 
Or do we? 
Do we?

Come on all you merry men 
Rally your cry 
Dance with the devil 
For tomorrow we'll surely 
Hey, hey, blow the men down 
Blow the men down 
Hey, hey

Do You
