The moon (hook) hung like a shadow on a rung over Shanghai
The soldier boys (firemen) were returning home screaming Banzai
And the kids are still playing their games
(And the reindeeers played games)
Getting hustled and rustled out in the rain
(And got hurt in the rain)
As I sat inside listening to the broadcast
Oh save my soul sweet rock 'n' roll (Now blow me down, Tokyo)
Cause I'm sinkin' fast

And then the band played, out of nowhere, it was alright

Well now the legendary chaplin of the fightin' 51st
Was gettin' ready to go
I said: "Padre, do you know a cheap virgin who likes to tango ?"
He said "You can try Linda Lee (Rosalie), around the corner and across the sea
Oh word is out, word is out she's fast "
Oh blow me down now Linda (bust me down now Rosie)
Cause I'm sinkin' fast

Yes and them cats are sure gettin' fat down in the train yard
And the Sandman brings 'em dreams to ship out in boxcars
The union says hold, break out the dice, (and) break the gold
It's lunchtime at last
And old Big (Stage) Mama said : "George Raft's tonight on the late show"
She sits straddlin' a kitchen chair, really gung-ho
She shivers with chills, wet with her slot-card thrills
Hypnotically lost in the glass
And we all sigh with the sunrise
(And the sun rises and we all sigh)
And we watch the credits pass
And the little blue dot went away

And then the morning cloak fell down like a hoax over Sleepytown
Them garbage truck vigilantes were out making their last rounds
The inheritor he sipped his beer and poked fun at the queer
And the bell rings
A horn blows
And he's outside pumpin' gas

But things were moving so slow tonight
So the kid goes back inside the station
And turns on his radio
To his local AM station

And the band played, on the radio, it was alright

Songs to Orphans (Part 1, 2)
