I've known a lot of girls who look a lot like you,
the same old things are happening to them
As are happenning to me and you.
The world says be still now,
Be silent and thrill now,
As they try to ram it
Smack into something inanimate.
Sure there's lots of people talk a lot like we do
Look the finest chalice forms at at their lips
Let's put their cup to our lips.
Ev'ry one wants to get hit.
Come with me and we'll get hit.
They'll hit us, little darling,
It's the Big Casino for us, little darling.
sure, a lot of people fight as brave as we do.
They pass thru' the same old crises as we do,
and they die the same deaths as we do.
Our little goats' crusade goes on and on,
Onwards to Babylon,
The great whore in her mayhem
awaits each brilliant, perfect, glt'tring gem.
I've known a lot of people look a lot like we do.
I've known a lot of people fight as brave as we do.
known a lot of people walk a lot like us
Known a lot of people talk a lot like us
known a lot of people fuck a lot like we do
It's the Big Casino for them too.
