[Dance On A Volcano]

Holy Mother of God
You've got to go faster than that to get to the top
Dirty old mountain all covered in smoke
She can turn you to stone
You better start doing it right
Yes you better start doing it right
All right

You're halfway up and you're halfway down
The pack on your back keeps turning you around
Throw it away, you won't need it up there, and remember
You don't look back whatever you do
Yes you better start doing it right.
All right
Yes you better start doing it right

[The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway]

And the lamb lies down, down, down, down on broadway

Early morning Manhattan
Ocean winds blow in off the land
Movie-Palace is now undone
The all-night watchmen have had their fun
Sleeping cheaply on the midnight show
It's the same old ending - it’s time to go
Get out!
It seems they cannot leave their dream
There is something moving in the sidewalk steam
And the lamb it lies down, down, down, down on Broadway

Night time flyers feel their pain
Drugstore takes down it’s chains
Metal motion comes in bursts
But the gas station can quench that thirst
Suspension cracked on an unmade road
The trucker's eyes they read 'Overload'
And out on the subway
Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid
He Exits in the daylight, his spray gun hid
And the lamb it lies down, down, down, down on Broadway
On broadway
On broadway
On broadway

They say the lights are always bright on broadway
They say there’s always magic in the air
Tonight, tonight, tonight

They say the lights are always bright on broadway
They say there’s always magic in the air

[The Musical Box (Closing Section)]

She's a lady, she's got time
Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your face
She's a lady, she is mine
Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your flesh
(Just let me look)

I've been waiting here for so long
And all this time passed me by
It hardly seems to matter now, not now
You stand there with your fixed expression
Just casting doubt on all I have to say
Well why don't you touch me, touch me
Why don't you touch me, touch me
Touch me now, now, now, now, now
Now, now, now, now, now
Now, now, now, na, ha now
Now, now, now, now, now
Now, now, now, na, ha now

[I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)]

It's one o'clock and it’s time for lunch
Bum de dum de dum, dum, dum
When the sun beats down and I lie on me bench
I can always hear them talk

Ah there's always been Ethel
Jacob wake up, you've got to tidy your room now
And then Mister Lewis
Well isn't it time that he was out on his own?
Over the garden wall, two little lovebirds - cuckoo to you!
Keep a them a mowing blades sharp

And I know what I like, and I like what I know
Ya know it’s getting better in your wardrobe
Stepping one beyond your show ooh show, show you show, show

I know, yes I know what I like, and I like I like what I know
It’s getting better in your wardrobe
Stepping one beyond your show
Your show, you know that it’s your show
It’s your show, know that’s it’s your show
Know that it’s your show (I like)

When the sun beats down and I lie on me bench
I can always hear them talk
Me, I'm just a lawnmower
You can tell me by the way I walk, walk!

[That’s All]

Well I thought it was going all right
I found out I’m wrong when I thought I was right
It’s always the same it’s just a shame that’s all

And I could say day, and you'd say night
And tell it's black when I know that it's white
It’s always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

[Illegal Alien]

No, no, no it’s no fun being an illegal alien
No, no it’s no fun being an illegal alien
It’s no fun being an illegal alien
No, no, no, no, no it’s no fun being an illegal alien

[You Have Your Own Special Way]

You have your own special way

[Follow You Follow Me]

And I will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year

I will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year there will be

[I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe) Reprise]

Ye, ye, ye, ye, yes I know well I know what I like
And I like well I like what I know, I know, I know
It’s getting better in your wardrobe
Stepping one beyond your show
Your show you know it’s your show
