"Things X" as written by and John Davies Cale....
Elsewhere in the temple the llamas are gearing up
To assault a tiger mountain when the sun comes up

Deconstructing Hollywood into the sand
Putting it back together with a rubber band
Legendary failures of the silver screen
Mimicking the software they end up in

You'd be doing it (doing the thing)
Doing it (doing the thing)
The thing you do in Denver when you're dead

A month is a Saturday, Wednesday's a week
I saw the way you looked at her Charlie Brown good grief
She pulled you into the shadows and taught you how to love
Patted you on the head and gave you a shove

And you were doing it (doing the thing)
Doing it (doing the thing)
The thing you do in Denver when you're
Dead, dead

Sat around whispering in the candle light
Getting a game plan for the night
Telling the difference between the north and the south
Keep a gun in your pocket and your tongue in your mouth

While you were doing it (doing the thing)
Doing it (doing the thing)
The thing you do in Denver when you're dead

The sexual exuberance of a concubine checks my carburetors
One more time
With the passion of a thorough-bread and the sensitivity of a

moose
I rarely make a move unless I've got some proof

That you'll be doing it (doing the thing)
Doing it (doing the thing)
The thing you do in Denver when you're dead

You live in Paris, I live in France
Things are expensive when you live first class
I learnt Latin, you learnt Greek
When you've got a minute let's meet in Crete

We'll be doing it (doing the thing)
Doing it (doing the thing)
The thing you do in Denver when you're dead

Doing it in Denver when you're dead
