Time To End This Masquerade

  Gerry Goffin: "Back Room Blood" sessions, NYC - winter 1995  

Hey what's your name, hey what's your game
If you put me down I'll do the same
Send horror shows to friends you know
Cause that's the way things often tend to go
I'm at a loss to entertain you see the cells are paralyzed inside my brain
I bid adieu to all of you
I think it's time to end this masquerade.

Now life was sweet till they called the heat
The county jail has just reserved a two room suite
How do they get to be such drags
I just can't figure out what's behind their bags
One thing I know without fail white man's justice will prevail
Buona Notta, Aufwiedersehen
I think it's time to end this masquerade.

I forgot to milk the cow but I don't wanna do it now
Like to sleep for a hunder years till' this old world just disappears
And so to end this grand affair I hear the the commander in chief was even there
He worked so hard he broke his back but Ronald Reagan was sleepin' in his sack
The Hard-ons are in with nothin' to win
It's the same old show Buenos Dias, Auroueit it's a rodeo
I think it's time to end this masquerade.
