She's almost seventeen
She breathes in gasoline
And when she falls asleep
She's got these crazy dreams.

Pirates take young girls away (she went out into the green sea)
and burn down everything.

She likes blue macaws
cos they know how to talk
and she sees islands in the street
between the cars which are like waves on the beach.

She's sick of gasoline (rising off the concrete)
she's sick of waiting.

For Barbarossa (to come home through the sun)
Barbarossa (he's coming home alone)
Barbarossa.

She gets into his pick-up truck
He takes her to Africa.

He drops her off in a parking lot
and she dreams of pearls and coconuts.

She's sick of gasoline (rising off the concrete)
she's sick of waiting (for the line to chain).

For Barbarossa (to come home through the sun)
Barbarossa (he's coming home alone)
Barbarossa.

Bar...barossa.
Bar...barossa.
Bar...barossa...
Barbarossa, Barbarossa, Barbarossa....
