Five Years

Duran Duran

Pushing through the market square
So many mothers sighing
News had just come over
We had five years left to cry in

News guy wept and told us
Earth was really dying
Cried so much his face was wet
Then I knew he wasn't lying

I heard telephones, opera house
Favourite melodies
I saw boys, toys, electric irons
And TVs

My brain hurt like a warehouse
It had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things
To store everything in there

All the fat, skinny peoplе
And all the tall, short people
And all thе nobody people
And all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

A girl my age went off her head
Hit some tiny children
And if the black guy hadn't have pulled her off
I sware she would have killed them

A soldier with a broken arm
Fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
While the Queen threw up at the sight of that

I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour
Drinking milk-shakes cold and long
Smiling-and-waving-and looking so fine
I don't think you knew you were in this song

And it was cold and it rained
So I felt like an actor
And I thought of Ma
And I wanted to get back there

Your face, your race
The way that you talk
I kiss you, you're beautiful
I want you to walk

Five years
Five years
Five years
Five years

That's all we've got
We've got five years
Stuck on my eye
Five years
What a surprise
We've got five years
My brain hurts a lot
Five years
That's all we've got

We've got five years
What a surprise
Five years
Stuck on my eyes
Five years
My brain hurts a lot
Five years
That's all we've got

We've got five years
Stuck on my eyes
Five years
What a surprise!
Five years
What a surprise!

Five years
Five years
Five years
Five years
