"When the Sky Comes Tumblin' Down [Single Edit]" as written by and Brian Robert Setzer....
I used to search for the ideal girl
The perfect little prettyness
I used to search for the ideal world
But frankly think it don't exist
So many times I get so afraid
So many ways I felt so betrayed
We get together on a Saturday night
And watch the whole world cave in

Little girl I want to know
What you look for in a man
Is he tall, tough and handsome
With a continental teint

I just want to be around
When the big world hits the ground
I don't want to make a sound
When the sky comes tumblin'
Sky comes tumblin' down

I used to worry about the job that I had
I barely made enough to survive
Oh man I'm worried about the life that I live
Sometimes I barely made it home alive
But now I don't need to worry
There's no need to rush there's no need to hurry
You don't need a new job you don't need a new wife
You don't need to go far in your life

Little girl I want to know
What you look for in a man
Does he have a lot of money
Even more than you can spend

I just want to be around
When the big world hits the ground
I don't want to make a sound
When the sky comes tumblin'
Sky comes tumblin' down

I used to play in a dead end band
I always ended up on my own
But now I play in a skeleton band
Nothing but skin and bones

Oh no I don't need sedation
I got my daily dose of radiation
We get together on a Saturday night
And watch each other's hair fall out

Little girl I want to know
What you look for in a man
Does he sell a lot of records
With his Californian band

I just want to be around
When the big world hits the ground
I don't want to make a sound
When the sky comes tumblin'
Sky comes tumblin' down
