Tearing Up The Town

Noel Brazil
A shimmer or a shudder, a sentence or a shriek What other languages do we speak? I don't know what the answer is, but fair dues to you A local lack of wisdom never stopped your being true A drummer in the basement A rhythm - roll at each hand's turn Finding one thing you can believe in Could seem like so much work You've heard the cry before Up and away we shall go Tearing up the town Tearing up the town Hurry to dinner, son, the heat is on Your daddy's in the oven and your mamma, she's gone She went down to the clinic, but the news was not good They told her it was nothing much, but she'd had quite enough The ruins of a household, a loverboy who sits and stares "No, No" she cried, "I can't take it, I'm gonna go out somewhere" You've heard the cry before Up and away she goes She's tearing up the town Tearing up the town Tearing up the town Now we're really with it, comrades, now we're set Ben Dolan's right behind us with the castanets It took a lot of pleading, but he came here after all And Ben's the very boy to take us right to where we want Hey, look at them couples linking through the rainy streets Someplace to be in love, the best there'll ever be Oh sister sadness, get yourself behind me Oh brother badness, why must you deny me? It doesn't matter where I've gone I'm on the run like everyone Tearing up the town Tearing up the town We're tearing up the town
