Tell me, mama
How you're going to sleep tonight
The city is so bright
And tell me, papa
How you plan to stay alive
They're sucking you so dry

Did you ever think of looking for a new life?
Or wonder what it's like to see the blue sky
No, my love
You mustn't stand out in the rain
Did you ever think of looking for the bright side
Or blacking out until you see a white light
Oh, my love
You mustn't play their little games

Tell me, darling
When you plan to smile for me
It's been such a long time
And, oh, my darling
When you open up your eyes you'll see
The future is so big

Did you ever think of looking for a new life?
Or wonder what it's like to see the blue sky
No, my love
You mustn't stand out in the rain
Did you ever think of looking for the bright side
Or blacking out until you see a white light
Oh, my love
You mustn't play their little games

Did you ever think of looking for a new life?
Or wonder what it's like to see the blue sky
No, my love
You mustn't stand out in the rain
Did you ever think of looking for a bright side
Or blacking out until you see a white light
Oh, my love
You mustn't play their little games
