had a notion
To drive this bomb to the ocean
My dad, he always said "you make your own luck"
So I'm going to apply some forward motion
Here's my insurance scam
I've got a bag of needles and a petrol can
Gonna make a fire down Brighton Main
Hitchhike home and stake my claim

Because Ramona, Ramona, you stole my heart
and stashed it behind your lounge
So I need a little dough from GIO
To break your assistance down
I want to tear your dressing gown

You looked set to devastate
Punching in the code to your security gate
With your Angelina lips, your sweet fake tan
I stood on the corner with a spade in my hand

Thinking, oh girl! You've surrounded my heart
My land's girt by your sea!
And my mind started racing to the finish line
Would you go for a guy like me?
So I'm here in the dark, it's a beach carpark
and I'm splashing the fuel around
Because I need a little dough from GIO
to break your assistance down
I want to tear your dressing gown

Ooooohh to tear your dressing gown
From the neck to the ground
All the way down, down, down...

I had a notion
Your love's going to cure me like a potion
Soothe my heart, salve my wounds
Set me free on a wave of pure emotion

But I got...

Trapped in the moonlight
Pinned down by a flashlight
Park rangers to the left
Cops to the right
(I should have checked my stars tonight!)
I got trapped in the moonlight
One thought running through my head
Guess I should have stayed in bed
I really should have stayed in bed
Instead I got...
Trapped in the moonlight

And for a moment Ramona I could hear my heart
beating like a Detroit bass
I looked up in the sky
Past the torches and the cries
and I swear I could see your face

Now I'm down for a spell in a ten foot cell
But Ramona I'm not so down
If the good lord's willing
and the creeks don't rise
I will roll back through your town
to tear your dressing gown
