Michael Penn — Bucket Brigade lyrics

It's a kind of parade
It's a bucket brigade
Who got it off the wire
That you'd set it and left
Just to cover the theft
That would topple and empire
But you wanted the world
And it was only the heart...
Only the heart of a girl

For everyone in the know
He's going to put on a show
Death defying feats of daring
And for the riff and the raff
He's gonna mimeograph
A statement he's preparing
That he wanted the world
And it was only a heart...
Only the heart of a girl

Here we are
Handing over all we know
Either that or
Start to blow 'til we've
Run out of breath

It's a kind of parade
It's a bucket brigade
Who read it off the wire
That you lost your whole world
And it was all over
The heart of a girl
Only the heart of a girl
Here we are
Handing over all we know
Either that or
Start to blow 'til we've
Run out of breath
