the bloody cops are bloody keen
 to bloody keep it bloody clean
 the bloody chief's a bloody swine
 who bloody draws a bloody line
 at bloody fun and bloody games
 the bloody kids he bloody blames
 are nowehere to be bloody found
 anywhere in chicken town
 
 the bloody scene is bloody sad
 the bloody news is bloody bad
 the bloody weed is bloody turf
 the bloody speed is bloody surf
 the bloody folks are bloody daft
 don't make me bloody laugh
 it bloody hurts to look around
 everywhere in chicken town
 the bloody train is bloody late
 you bloody wait you bloody wait
 you're bloody lost and bloody found
 stuck in f****** chicken town
 
 the bloody view is bloody vile
 for bloody miles and bloody miles
 the bloody babies bloody cry
 the bloody flowers bloody die
 the bloody food is bloody muck
 the bloody drains are bloody f*****
 the colour scheme is bloody brown
 everywhere in chicken town
 
 the bloody pubs are bloody dull
 the bloody clubs are bloody full
 of bloody girls and bloody guys
 with bloody murder in their eyes
 a bloody bloke is bloody stabbed
 waiting for a bloody cab
 you bloody stay at bloody home
 the bloody neighbors bloody moan
 keep the bloody racket down
 this is bloody chicken town
 
 the bloody pies are bloody old
 the bloody chips are bloody cold
 the bloody beer is bloody flat
 the bloody flats have bloody rats
 the bloody clocks are bloody wrong
 the bloody days are bloody long
 it bloody gets you bloody down
 evidently chicken town
 the bloody train is bloody late
 you bloody wait you bloody wait
 you're bloody lost and bloody found
 stuck in f****** chicken town

I'm intrigued - whose song is this?

I gotta keep my eyes open
so I can see my Lord
I'm gonna search the horizon
for a brand-new Ford
I can hear him rollin' on down the lane
I said, "Hollywood be thy name"
'cause Jesus gonna be here
he's gonna be here soon

Out on the road today
I saw a deadhead sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said,
"Don't look back. You can never look back."
I thought I knew what love was,
what did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but

I can see you
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that
radio on baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
after the boys of summer have gone

You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave.

And this little duet.

Hey Willie, you in there?
Yeah.
You still sleepin'?
No.
You lazy!
I ain't lazy. I ain't talking to you no more.
Awww c'mon Willie, give mamma a smile.
You took the smile, wiped it right off my face,
when you took my thing and put it in your place,
I mean put it in your place.
You accusing me of a crime?
I ain't accusin' you of a crime, I'm accusin' you of lots of crimes!
Listen, you said you wouldn't mind a cockatoo to keep you entertained
Yeah that's right.
When I found out what you were talking about, girl I knew you was insane.
You took my frill neck lizard and put him in a crack.
Yeah, then it went all floppy.
And you wouldn't give him back.
Oh I love that frill neck lizard, he was my good old friend.
All you ever done with him was send him round the bend.
I'm gonna call the cops, I know I've got a case.
Talking bout you took my thing and put it in your place,
I mean put it in your place.
Oh Willie, you such a sookie baby!
Go on.
Yeah, you ought to just keep on cryin'.
Oh I ain't gonna cry no more.
You took my long neck turtle and stretched him til he blue,
And waved him round like he was some kind of a joke.
Oh yeah your goanna ain't come up since I ran him down that hole.
Yeah, and my ant eater won't eat nothin' now but sweet jelly roll!
Oh Willie, that ant eater got a tongue, never was in the book.
The Law going to throw the book at you, I'm gonna call the cops,
I got a solid case, talking about you took my thing and put it in your place,
I mean put it in your place.

Old Reilly stole a stallion
But they caught him and they brought him back
And they laid him down on the jailhouse ground
With an iron chain around his neck

Old Reilly’s daughter got a message
That her father was goin’ to hang
She rode by night and came by morning
With gold and silver in her hand

When the judge he saw Reilly’s daughter
His old eyes deepened in his head
Sayin’, “Gold will never free your father
The price, my dear, is you instead”

“Oh I’m as good as dead,” cried Reilly
“It’s only you that he does crave
And my skin will surely crawl if he touches you at all
Get on your horse and ride away”

“Oh father you will surely die
If I don’t take the chance to try
And pay the price and not take your advice
For that reason I will have to stay”

The gallows shadows shook the evening
In the night a hound dog bayed
In the night the grounds were groanin’
In the night the price was paid

The next mornin’ she had awoken
To know that the judge had never spoken
She saw that hangin’ branch a-bendin’
She saw her father’s body broken

These be seven curses on a judge so cruel:
That one doctor will not save him
That two healers will not heal him
That three eyes will not see him

That four ears will not hear him
That five walls will not hide him
That six diggers will not bury him
And that seven deaths shall never kill him

Oh, no cannonballs did fly, no rifles cut us down
 No bombs fell from the sky, no blood soaked the ground
 No powder flash blinded the eye, no deathly thunder sound
 But just as sure as the hand of God, they brought death to my hometown
 They brought death to my hometown
 
No shells ripped the evening sky, no cities burning down
 No armies stormed the shores for which we'd die
 No dictators were crowned
 I awoke from a quite night, I never heard a sound
 Marauders raided in the dark and brought death to my hometown, boys
 Death to my hometown
 
They destroyed our families' factories and they took our homes
 They left our bodies on the plains, the vultures picked our bones
 
So listen up, my sonny boy, be ready for when they come
 For they'll be returning sure as the rising sun
 Now get yourself a song to sing and sing it 'til you're done
 Yeah, sing it hard and sing it well
 Send the robber barons straight to hell
 The greedy thieves who came around
 And ate the flesh of everything they found
 Whose crimes have gone unpunished now
 Who walk the streets as free men now
 
Ah, they brought death to our hometown, boys
 Death to our hometown, boys
 Death to our hometown, boys
 Death to our hometown, whoa!

Good taste!  My favorite movie is "The Graduate," so imagine my joy when that song plays 3 times!

Now when all this steel and these stories
They drift away to rust
And all our youth and beauty
Has been given to the dust
When your game has been decided
And you're burning down the clock
And all our little victories and glories
Have turned into parking lots
When your best hope and desires
Are scattered to the wind
And hard times come
And hard times go
And hard times come
And hard times go
And hard times come
And hard times go
And hard times come
And hard times go
Yeah, just to come again
Bring on your Wrecking Ball

If Bono wrote that, people would be bitching: "he's not the lyricist he used to be."  Or words to that effect.

If Bono wrote 'Stay' today, people would be bitching that he isn't the lyricist he used to be. I'm used to it. ;)
