lyrics

Nicky's on the deck
looking for the rain.
He's been to the Loft
and he's trying to get off.
On West 22nd,
later Mercer Street.
Grace Jones and Loleatta
Put the fire to the feet.
Don't hang the art
in the Gallery,
don't hang the artist
in the Studio. (bridge)
We know how to chase the rabbits
it is something that we learned in school.
We know how to make it rain so you never wanna forget.
We know how to chain the jungle
and chase the drums into the storm.
We know how to catch your eye
so you never will forget you
You're gonna tell me to get down.
You are gonna tell me to get over it.
You are gonna help me to get off,
all the way, all the way.
You're gonna tell me to get down.
You are gonna tell me to get over it.
You are gonna help me to get off
all the way, all the way .
Work don't pay the bills
and all they are is cost.
You can park in paradise
and you can leave the lights on.
Getting through to you
is Getting into you.
Getting inside you
is the surest shot.
Don't hang the art
in the Gallery.
Don't hang the artist
in the Studio.
We know how to chase the rabbits
it is something that we learned in school.
We know how to make it rain so you never wanna forget.
We know how to chain the jungle
and chase the drums into the storm.
We know how to catch your eye
so you never will forget you
You're gonna tell me to get down.
You are gonna tell me to get over it.
You are gonna help me to get off,
all the way, all the way.
You're gonna tell me to get down.
You are gonna tell me to get over it.
You are gonna help me to get off
all the way, all the way .

Work don't pay the bills
and all they are is cost
you can park in paradise
and you can leave the lights on
Getting through to you
is... Getting into you.
Getting inside you is the surest shot.
Don't hang the art
in the Gallery,
don't hang the artist
in the Studio.
We know how to chase the rabbits
it is something that we learned in school.
We know how to make it rain so you never wanna forget.
We know how to chain the jungle
and chase the drums into the storm.
We know how to catch your eye
so you never will forget you
You're gonna tell me to get down.
You are gonna tell me to get over it.
You are gonna help me to get off,
all the way, all the way.
You're gonna tell me to get down.
You are gonna tell me to get over it.
You are gonna help me to get off
all the way, all the way
down.
