I met Lucy at the mission
She was talking too loud
She said, "praise his name, I've just been saved
Now I could use a ride downtown"
I said, "I got a little money
And I'm looking for a friend"
She chipped off a chunk of that ten-dollar junk
Let her eyes roll back in her head
And said, "wake me up if anything happens
I'm a sucker for a little romance
And I can't wait to catch that spark
So wake me up as soon as it starts"

Saw the boys out on the corner
Screaming at the wind
Singing the blues in well-heeled shoes
And raising their fists
Ain't this a dapper revolution
Tell me, what you gonna change?
You won't get far throwing rocks at cars
And running inside when it rains
So wake me up if anything happens
I'd hate to miss the action
And I'm just dying to do my part
So wake me up as soon as it starts

I dropped Lucy at the graveyard
Headed down to the club
Saw some friends of mine trading schoolboy lines
In the back of a bus
They said, "we're blowing this shit town
We got a little band
There ain't nothing to it, man, all you gotta do
Is put an x on the back of your hand"
I said, "wake me up if anything happens
I'd be a fool to miss my chance
At broken bottles and busted hearts
So wake me up as soon as it starts"
