"Stranger In Town" as written by and Jeffrey T Porcaro David F Paich....
I remember it was late one night
In the middle of a dream
Woke up in a pool of sweat
Thought I heard a scream
Ran over to the window sill
Stuck my head out for a peek
Dressed in black was a man I didn't recognise
Running down my back street
My heart skipped a beat

[Chorus x2]
You better watch out, there's a stranger in town
You better watch out when he comes around
Don't make a sound

The morning paper and the head-lines read:Danger to the queen
Buckingham Palace better tighten things up
The son of a bitch is mean.
Vendors on the corner just doin' their job
Acting like nothing's new
Scotland Yard's still looking for him
But he doesn't leave
A single clue

[Chorus x2]

You better watch out

Who's this man who fell out of the sky?
What's he done and where's he live?
How can a man who's a criminal be a hero to the kids?
The old couple swear that the Riper's back
They say it's him all right.
The young girl says it's Jesus and he won't be back again
I wonder who's right ?


You better watch out

    General CommentThis was a strange song about some mysterious drifter that was either a murderer or the messiah. The video told the story better, like when the murder victim's chalk outline gets up and describes what happened to him.
