The Friends Of Mr Cairo

That Saturday night dark masquerade
Had filled his friend with lead, the same, sweetheart
 
But then, as nothing happens quite the same
Investigation is the game
He had to check her story right away-he dead
Sam Spade his buddy Archer first to go he got it-he dead
She spelt it out, how could they know the 'Fatman' got it -he dead
Her sister didn't really live at all-confusion-he dead
His chase led to the Fatman, to face the friends of Mr. Cairo
 
That night, the double crosser got it right
Pretending he was really dim
He slipped to Sam a double gin (Mickey Finn)
 
He woke, the boys had gone, but not his gun
They'd left a note to lead him on
The chase to find the Maltese Falcon-you bet-
 
Early thirties gangster movies
Set to spellbind population
 
From Chicago to Hong Kong
Via Istanbul the Talking Tong
 
Dirty rats thru' prohibition
Money flowed thru gangsterism
 
Acting out this fantasy
In Hollywood's vicinity
 
The best part for the best rendition
Al Capone he sent to prison
 
Citizen Kane came fast and quickly
Conquerin' ol' New York City
Poking fun at superstition
Media became television
 
One on one to talk to you
Like film stars they get close to you
You've mirrored his appeal
He wants you so, he wants to be beside you
Then you pass by giving him the other side of you
Like the mystics do
So that every time he moves, he moves for you
 
Soul and light can always see
The meeting of true love and she
This silent night and I,
I guess a lonely mind might see
 
I've seen love on the screen
I've seen a screen goddess and me-oh
How often this, how often, this the power of you
And so, I must confess
Whatever I see
I'm meant to be there with you
With you with you
 
Silent golden movies, talkies, technicolour, long ago
My younger ways stand clearer, clearer than my footprints
Stardom greats I've followed closely
 
Give me Cagney any day
Or Jimmy Stewart for President
 
Or Edward 'G' and all those guys
Who always shoot between the eyes
Between the eyes
Between the eyes
 
Father love do you work, do you work for Mother
Chances could call, and accept that, be no other
Science as it might, disappear correspond with colour
Chance is the fruit, will outlive, what is now the brother
Call for total wealth to distribute like a picture
In black and white, give it joy, give it, let it hit you
 
Spoil our existence by extreme gift to population
Father love do you work, do you work for Mother
Tell me straight be the Godfather be no other
Media Kings give us now give us total movie
Straight right now, give it clear, give us total movie
Now being here, being now, being here believing
