Pablo’s Place

Josephine shoots dice across Las Vegas

She’s never thrown a snake eyes in her life

Both are red with lucky kissing lipstick

She’s doing all she can to get it right


(And she says)

I think I got this

Tonight’s the night


Pablo squeezes red out of his inkgun

Drips upon his boots like claret wine

It always looks so pretty on the pigskin

Today’s the day he starts on humankind


(And he says)

I think I got this

Tonight’s the night

Don’t waste your breath cos I’m not listening

Everything is gonna be alright


So come get your snakes, your roses

Come get Guevara’s face

Come get a whole new skin now

Down at Pablo’s place

Ivan’s been ten years in the circus

Annie is the new girl on the wheel

He’s got the best throwing knives in the business

But nothing’s ever gonna bring back Jill


(And he says)

I think I got this

Tonight’s the night

Don’t waste your breath cos I’m not listening

Everything is gonna be alright
