If you want to know the truth.
They got girls that will come right up to
your windows.
They got guys that will sell you tickets
to a car crash.
If you want to tell the truth.

I used to cruise.
I used to walk around with rubies
in my shoes.
Dude, they used to call me Jewels.
It’s not so hard to sparkle when
you’re blowing up.
Sometimes it’s enough just showing up.

She can’t even talk about the drinking
without smoking.
She can’t even see with all the smoke
up in her eyes.
She’s suggesting we could maybe
take a shortcut.
‘Cause we’ve been down this avenue
like fifty million times.

Trapper Avenue

Down that avenue
They got girls that will wipe you off
the windows.
They got kids that will tr y to kill you at
the car wash.
Coming down with blades up in their boots.
They’ll cut your fingers off your gun before
you shoot.

All this dancing’s going to lead to
heavy breathing.
All these pills are going to show up
in your eyes.
Since we turned the corner I haven’t
seen you smile.
We’ve been walking down this avenue at
least a couple miles.

And they’re waving from the windows.
And they’re singing songs we both like.
I think they dig our for ward progress.
It’s like they never left us.

The salesmen couldn’t ser ve us.
But the doctors kept their promise.
The chemist gave his blessing.
But the nurses wouldn’t let us.

Wouldn’t let us step out of our get ups
It sort of seems like one big set up.
When they were waving through
the windows.
When they were waving from the windows.
When they were waving from the windows.
And singing songs we both like.

When they were waving from the windows.
And singing songs we both like.

They’ll come right up to your windows.
Down on Trapper Avenue.
