I saw her at the zoo today, what can I say? She's off the drugs now, said to say hey
And did you still play bass in that Paperback Writer-style?
She's looking good, she's got Marianne Faithfull's smile
And we laughed about the old days, how we had so much fun
We were like Baader-Meinhof but without the guns
We were like Baader-Meinhof but without the guns

She said, "Life pans out like a bitch, it's just so unfair"
I said "Yeah, but you still got that Mohican pubic hair, I bet you do"
'Cause she worked for a spell in this upmarket hostess-bar
All these alpha-males come from close and from afar
So she's sitting there in some statesman's face
Thinking about home, dreaming about the old place
Thinking about home, dreaming about the old place

She was married for a while to one of those sensitive men
Liked to watch Thelma & Louise over and over and over again
'Til he caught her naked with a jazz man, caused so much razzamatazz
It wasn't the sex, though, he just hated jazz
So she's allergic to love now, may Eros rot in Hell
You get too close you get two sharp shakes of her leper's bell
You get too close you get two sharp shakes of her leper's bell

And the sky grew dark and the sun grew cold
And the sky grew dark and the sun grew cold
It's like some demon's inside her, some kind of lynch-mob in her soul
So they fill her full of medication, lock her up in a hole
'Til you're sick and confused and you don't know just where you are
But you're a fucking long way from Shangri-La
But you're a fucking long way from Shangri-La
When the shit-missile strikes it's always the same
First you're Lazarus reborn then you're Lazarus in flames
First you're Lazarus back from the dead then you're Lazarus up in flames
