  • He's just a local boy
    Modeling for magazines
    Things are never quite as they seem

    He's got throwing stars, he's got silver tops
    Mama's grabbed her jewelery
    Hidden in the bathroom
    Calling the cops

    Give me somewhere to go
    Don't give me train rides
    When the shops are all closed
    Don't give me train rides

    Never gave anyone the slightest notion
    Never showed us that the call was cast
    Mama don't want you, daddy don't want you
    Your motor's running way too fast

    Now the Mall way's shuttered
    Hanging in the afternoon
    Drink a little Vodka, picking up the old man
    Rolling him 'round in her room
