We walked over the bridge in Milwaukee
Past the statues of Fonz and the duck
With the wind kicking in
and the sparrows all running amok
And that woman, your friend
who was pregnant
Put your hand on her belly for luck
And I laughed 'cause its you and I
knew that you knew your were stuck

You can tell
By the laugh in the dark
at the sound of the bell
You can tell
It's the nucleus burning
inside of the cell
It's the nucleus burning
inside of the cell

We got over that bridge and
went walking
Back to a table with cards to be dealt
And a show where the whole front row
was taking picture of itself
And then, man, your old friend turned
the night on its end
Like your time was a bottomless well
But you grabbed me and said, "come
on back from the ledge for a spell"

You can tell
By the laugh in the dark
at the sound of the bell
You can tell
It's the nucleus burning
inside of the cell
It's the nucleus burning
inside of the cell
