Phoebe Snow Electra Lyrics

Last updated:

She loved a man who was sweet and lean
With a Madison Avenue scar
And wherever he went to get away
He took their luxury car
Where can you run
When the old house shakes
And it's too hot to make any plans
The sidewalks crack, and the whole world quakes
'Cause you know that you chose the wrong man


Chorus:
Electra, the spirits tease
High up a bluff
And down on her knees
She's looking down
At kingdom come
Come back Electra
Don't jump, don't jump!

With a camera, he caught the mood
When a pen he caught what she thought
And everything worth having he mistook
For something you bought
Where can you run
When the old house shakes
And it's too hot to make any plans
The sidewalks crack, and the whole world quakes
'Cause you know that you chose the wrong man


Repeat Chorus:
