Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun,
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky,
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze.

Come on you target for faraway laughter,
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine.

Come on and shine (shine), shine like a star
Shining so bright like the star that you are
Oh oh oh oh shine (shine) into the future
Spreading your light wherever you are

Little May was kinda 'fraid of darkness
So she says "I guess I'll go."
Boy began to sigh, looked up to the sky
Told the sky his little tale of woe
So shine on
Shine on harvest moon
Up in the sky

Baby's so high that she's skying,
Yes she's flying, afraid to fall.
I'll tell you why baby's crying,
'Cause she's dying, aren't we all?

Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane
So choose your last words, this is the last time
'Cause you and I, we were born to die

Holly came from Miami F.L.A.
Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side,
Said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side.


Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Now, where is this love to be found?
Won't someone tell me 'cause life (sweet life)
Must be somewhere (sweet life) to be found (somewhere, somewhere for me)
Instead of a concrete jungle
Where the living is harder (in a concrete)
Concrete jungle (jungle)

Let's bungle in the jungle,
Well, that's all right by me.
I'm a tiger when I want love,
But I'm a snake if we disagree.

I am the eye in the sky,
Looking at you,
I can read your mind.

I am the maker of rules,
Dealing with fools,
I can cheat you blind.

And I don't need to see any more,
To know that,
I can read your mind, I can read your mind.

I dug my key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights
I slashed a hole in all four tires
Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats

I ride my bike, I roller skate, don't drive no car
Don't go so fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don't drive, I've been all around the world
Some people say I've done all right for a girl

Lee-ife's a carousel fee-ar as I can tell
And I'm ridin' for free
(I've got a pocketful of miracles)
But if I had to pick a miracle
My favourite miracle of all is you
And me

Riding along on a carousel, trying to catch up to you
Riding along on a carousel, will I catch up to you?
Horses chasing 'cause they're racing
So they ain't so far
On a carousel
On a carousel

Like the pine trees linin' the windin' road,
I've got a name, I've got a name.
Like the singin' bird and the croakin' toad,
I've got a name, I've got a name.
And I carry it with me like my daddy did,
But I'm living the dream that he kept hid.

Now I don't blame him 'cause he run and hid
But the meanest thing he ever did
Was before he left, he went and named me Sue...

Pretty woman I don't believe you, you're not the truth,

There she was just a-walkin' down the street,

Snappin' her fingers and shufflin' her feet,
singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"

Did I tell you 'bout the place called Doo-wah-diddy
It ain't no town and it ain't no city
It's just awful small, but awful pretty
That's Doo-wah-diddy

Ooh wah, ooh wah cool, cool kitty
Tell us about the boy from New York City

He's kind of tall
He's really fine
Some day I hope to make him mine, all mine

You grew up ridin' the subways, running with people,
Up in Harlem, down on Broadway.
You're no tramp, but you're no lady,
Talkin' that street talk,
You're the heart and soul of New York City.

Two floors above the butcher
First door on the right
Life filled to the brim
As I stood by my window
And looked out on those
Brooklyn Roads

They held a concert out in Brooklyn
To watch the island bridges blow
They turned our power down
And drove us underground
But we went right on with the show

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one inbetween
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other ah-ha
From one lover to another ah-ha

I'm sailing away,
Set an open course for the virgin sea.
I've got to be free,
Free to face the life that's ahead of me.
On board I'm the captain, so climb aboard,
We'll search for tomorrow, on every shore.
And I'll try--oh Lord I'll try--to carry on....

Down at the bottom of that dirty ol' river
Down where the reeds and the catfish play
There lies a dream as soft as the water
There lies a bluebird that's flown away

For just a skyline pigeon,
Dreaming of the open,
Waiting for the day--
That he can spread his wings,
And fly away again.

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, and the first thing that I heard,
Was a song outside my window, and the traffic wrote the words.
It came a-reeling up like Christmas bells and rapping up like pipes and drums--

Oh, won't you stay,
We'll put on the day,
And we'll wear it 'till the night comes.

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
You were famous, your heart was a legend
You told me again, you preferred handsome men
But for me you would make an exception

And clenching your fist for the ones like us
Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty
You fixed yourself, you said "Well never mind
We are ugly but we have the music"

I heat up (I heat up)
I cool down (I cool down)
When something gets in my way I go round it.
Don't let life get me down
Gonna take life the way that I found it.
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me

Oh, my music makes you dance
And gives your spirit to take a chance
And I wrote some rock 'n' roll so you can move
Music fills your heart, well, that's a real fine place to start
It's from me, it's for you
It's from you, it's from me
It's a worldwide symphony

He's everybody's token, on everybody's wall
Blessing all the papers, thanking one and all
Hugging all the babies, kissing all the ladies
Knowing all that you think about from writing on the wall
He's so divine, his soul shines
Breaks the night, sleep tight
His ever loving face smiles on the whole human race
He says, I'm somebody
He's got his eye on your soul, his hand on your heart
