lyrics

Heavy Weight Champion of the World

Crashed the Chrysler
heading down to the bay
none the wiser
there'd be more wrecks today
blinded by the wonder
of the days of steam and coal
when the face of a lover
was good as gold
searching for Sinatra
come fly come fly with me
strike up the orchestra
blue eyed symphony
radio dial numbers
give away no clues
static sounds like thunder
nothing's cutting through
Chorus:
Hold on to nothing new
I'm the undefeated, Heavyweight Champion of the World
Hold on to nothing new
I'm the undisputed, Heavyweight Champion of the world
Californ I A
your letter came in the post
i love your shy way
but i don't care for the coast
No natural disaster
would bring you home
whatever your after, I don't know if you know
