Union Maid:

The game's been jaded
This town's receded
The people-faced phantom is fading
And Romeo is bleeding

She brushes a comb through her hair
And he kicks back a nightcap
Romeo leans in and in a prothetic voice
Says "Hey, can I get a hit off that..?" and...

As these changes pass as a minstrel
He's walking down below the window
In the streetlight he poses as a carrier
For the daily news

He sings, "Extra, extra, read all about it!"
There's a harshness, it resounds
All it gets is a quarter in his case
And maybe a ride downtown

Delapidated Dillingers are no problem
Cruising down the street
For both of them it is that brief excursion
From that dreaded trotted week

Oh, those pretty lights
Shining down like heaven's eyes
Oh, those pretty lights
Yet another uneventful night

The game's been jaded
This town's receded
The people-faced phantom is fading
And Romeo is bleeding

She brushes a comb through her hair
And he kicks back a nightcap
Romeo leans in and in a prothetic voice
Says "Hey, can I get a hit off that..?" and...

As these changes pass as a minstrel
He's walking down below the window
In the streetlight he poses as a carrier
For the daily news

He sings, "Extra, extra, read all about it!"
There's a harshness, it resounds
All it gets is a quarter in his case
And maybe a ride downtown

Dilapidated Dillingers are no problem
Cruising down the street
For both of them it is that brief excursion
From that dreaded trotted week

Oh, those pretty lights
Shining down like heaven's eyes
Oh, those pretty lights
Yet another uneventful night
