Song Lyrics

There must be some way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief

Businessmen they drink my wine
Plowshares dig my earth
There’s not one of them
That knows what any of it is worth

No reason to get excited
The thief he softly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is just a joke

But you and I, we’ve been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk softly now
For the hour is getting late

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too

Outside in the distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
The wind begins to howl…

There must be some way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There’s too much confusion
I can’t get no relief

Businessmen they drink my wine
Plowshares dig my earth
There ain’t one of them along the line
Who knows what any of it is worth

No reason to get excited
The thief he softly spoke
Cuz there’re many here among us
Feel that life is but a joke

But you and I, we’ve been through that

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants, too

Outside in the distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
The wind began to howl…
