MISFITS


up in that new space station living Kennedy's dream
there was an automatic camera shooting elephantine
well the crew was relaxing before the video screen
watching old reruns of Mohammed Ali
the voice of Houston calling brought them back to the scene
except the sky is falling • do you know what that means?

out on that Texas sidewalk through the hotel mezzanine
there walked a see-thru' hooker to a suite with two TVs
but by the elevator she began to sneeze
with an attack so uncontrolled it brought her to her knees
and then the hotel doctor with nurse and stethoscope
announced the worst is over but for her there is no hope

way down in South Dakota on the Needles Highway
there's a lone red rider on the road today
and though his war is over he's fighting on anyway
although he's seldom sober • he's drinking whisky all day
down in that old box canyon where only misfits can go
he rides with no companion but saloon and rodeo

up in that new space station living Kennedy's dream
there's an automatic camera shooting elephantine
well the crew is relaxing before the video screen
watching old reruns of Mohammed Ali
the voice of Houston calling brought them back to the scene
except the sky is falling • do you know what that means?
