"View From Above" as written by and Mccaughey....
Narrator: Yes Patriece, Washington is a good sound stage for whistling.
In fact, from Bellingham to Vancouver, you can stroll along busy water-fronts
and let the whistles transform you into Captain Walter Mitty. Pacing the
bridge of a big freighter bound for Hong Kong, Stockholm or Calcutta.

?Though the whistle blew? her fingers like a blow-dryer
I roll up the windows climbing up a little higher
They say so high ????
Oh baby it's not something I'm saying just for fun
But I'm getting tired and the mattress is done

You're so sophisticated with your cathedral moves
I can smell from here the rows of old pews
And the altar adorned with the robes of the Lord
Oh baby it's not just something I'm saying to be mean
But I'm getting bored and the dashboard is clean

Now my armpit stings from a bout with the cross
In the rearview mirror you ?look right across?
The broken antenna's bent between your knees
Oh baby it's not something I'm saying just for laughs
You can bring back the breeze if I give you the shaft

Now that ?blue dress bothers the? auto workshop men
It's much better from here, up on the top
If I ?write on this? stomach you got to read it out loud
Oh baby it's not something I'm just saying for kicks
You're just part of the crowd with a nickname that sticks

The greatest sights of all time
Freaks of nature
????
The long necked women of Burma
The leopard man
The elephant ????
The alligator-skin man
And Barnum's famous ?zip?
The ???? who had a head that came to a point like an ice cream cone
He had no more brains than a monkey
The strangest sights of all times
Come in now and see
Reproductions of the famous freaks of all times
Freaks of nature
