ELLIOTT MURPHY


Put It Down Lyrics

I.
You can lie like a television baby flying innocent like
a blue eyed dove
You can stand by a foutain with your landlord pitching
coins but it ain't gonna bring you luck
Cause I will know where you are and why and how and
whatever that behavior well it really sucks
But the time we were young - was the time when my
passion was on the run
And the time we were young - oh well now our love seems
to be all eaten up
Put it down

II.
The elite troopers of the harmonica commandos - they
were marching to the John Sousa band
And I knew we was somewhere to the west of never never
never never never never neverland
I saw no snow on the mountains but I knew the iceman he
was coming anyway
But that's another story for a rainy day
That's another set of rules for another game I'm gonna
play
Put it down

III.
Well I was resting and I picked up a magazine in the
restroom and I opened it to the page
it was opened to before
There was a pcture of a crying Spanish painter he was
standing in a barroom full of whores
But his model she was nowhere to be seen cause she died
just a year before drinking absinthe
on the quai with an African named Louis Amour
drinking absinthe on the quai D'Orsay with an African
named Louis Amour - that's right

IV.
So I rode into the galleria and I went to my favorite
toy-shop
And I loaded up my BB gun so when I saw that lamppost I
could give it a good shot
You know I missed by a mile or three -
Although the truth was I wouldn't have broken it if I
could
The truth was my heart was already cracked although no
one could see
Yeah the truth was my bulb was burned out and there was
absolutely no life,
no light left inside me Hmmmmm.

V.
So I went down by the frontier watching the troops in
black silk skate past
I was sipping ginger ale
and a near beer at the Martinez and knew these good
times couldn't last
There was some kinda demonstration going on down o the
Midem market place of sounds
Ah but man I was so out of it I didn't know if it was
laughter
or if somebody was about to drown
Yeah I was so completely out of it and my consciousness
had just left town

VI.
So once again I sipped across the old border when the
guards were looking the other way
At a parade of retired revolutionaries - We all raised
our hands and said hip hip hooray
And than came the dirty general and his staft - And man
they were as infected as can be
When they tried to shake my hand - I said please don't
touch me
So they all put their dress gloves on and said now
we're gonna do it to you for free -
That's right

VII
So I found a shoe that i was comfortable in - it was
back - it was soft - it was suede
And I'm gonna walk a thousand miles to your house - if
I could just get out of the Lincoln brigade
See I had misplaced ideals - they were lost in the
sixties or before
And the present was changing so rapidly and the future
was already a bore
Yeah things were changing so fast but even Bill Gates
couldn't tell me what for
That's right

VIII
So you better change your eyeglasses you better change
your underwear
But I won't change my mind
Because now I'm trying to be nice to you but you're
gonna wait till the very next time
When I'm gonna tell you what I really think - I'm a
gonna pull no punches at oil
And like the true sportsman that I've always been I'm
gonna say I'm gonna pass the ball
And the stadium will rise in a grand unison and we're
gonna watch you take a fall
Ah that's all.. .that's all

IX
Now can you tell me why they make the telephone books
yellow - Why they make the toilettes white
Can you tell me whose been screeching tires around my
corner when its the middle of the night
And why I am alone again - But why am I at peace Is it
just that lonesome Hurricane weather
ah but the season is so brief
When the barometric pressure it allows my good pants to
finally keep a crease -
Oh mama..

X
You know I've stayed in this motel before perhaps in
this very some room I think we slept together
in this queen sized bed together under the silver
golden anniversary moon
And there was still some kinda mystery back then - Ah
that's what I liked about you
Back when I was a detective - you were my own best clue
But the case it was never really solved - Because you
alibi so guicky fell through
That's right fell through

XI
Now that's eleven verses - Its after midnight and I
gotta go I gotta pack my bags tonight -
Couse tomorrow the morning comes so brigbt and early
and so bright -
And I wonder who am I singing to -
When there's just me and the carpet and the wall its
the rainy season of my memory -
I hear drops of recollections leaking down the hall
And a memory you gotto put it down so gently cause it
will drop if you let it foil
Ah its the rainy seson ot my memory and I'm just gonna
let it all tall
Put it down put it down put it down put it down put it
down put it down put it down put it down
Petit down put it down put it down put it down put it
down put it down put it down put it down
