PAINTED RAIN

CHEE CHEE, BEGGED ME
WHICH WAY TO GO...?
LEFT TURN? RIGHT TURN?
OR STRAIGHT DOWN THE ROAD?

I SAY, I FLY BY BLUE RADIO
JUST FOLLOW MY FINGERS
GO WHERE THE BEAT GOES

LET'S POP A CHEATER
SHAG UP SOME JAZZBO
WE'LL STAY UP TALKING ALL NIGHT LONG

CAUSE WHEN STUPID CITY'S PAINTED RAIN
EVEN THE BLACKTOP CRACKS A SMILE AGAIN
AND EVERYTHING JINGLE JANG
GOES SHA LA LA LA...

NOW HOLD, ON BUSTER
THAT DON'T CONNECT
CHEE CHEE CAN SNAP, BUT
YOUR LIP DON'T MAKE SENSE

I JUST, MAKE IT, UP AS I GO
MY LEFT HAND IS LIGHTNING
MY RIGHT'S A TORNADO

WE'RE TALKING TIGER
COLD AS A CLINIC
STRIPPING AND STRIPING
ALL NIGHT LONG

CAUSE WHEN STUPID CITY'S PAINTED RAIN...

        THIS DIRTY OLD COAT OF A TOWN'S GOT SECRET POCKETS
        DEEP DOWN WHERE THE SPEED WIRE
        SIZZLES YOUR SOCKETS
        ANYBODY FOR SIDEWALK ROULETTE?
        ANYBODY HUNGRY?
        WATCH CHEE CHEE AND WHAT'S-HIS-FACE
        DO ONE DUMB THING TOO MANY...
