Reached back for the bottle
Rubbed against the lamp
Genie came out smiling like some Eastern tramp
He said, Hey boy what's happening
What is going on
You can have three wishes if you don't take too long
If you don't take too long

I said, I wish they were all happy in the Lebanon
Wish somebody'd help me write this song
And I wish when I was young my old man had not been goneGenie said consider it done

There's something in the air and you don't know what it is
You see someone through a window who you've just learned to miss
And the road leads on to glory but you've used up your last wish, your last wish
And you want her to come home
Bring her home...

Genie said I'm sorry, that 's the way it goes
Where the hell's the lamp sucker
It's time for me togo
Bye

There's something in the air and you don't know what it is
You see someone through a window who you've just learned to miss
And the road leads on to glory but you've used up your last wish, your last wish
And you want her to come home
Doctor, doctor, what is wrong with me
This supermarket life is getting long
What is the heart life of a colour TV
What is the shelf lifeof a teenage queen

Ooh, Western woman
Ooh, Western girl

News hound sniffs the air when Jessica Hahn goes down
He latches on to that symbol of detatchment
Attracted by the peeling away of feeling
The celebrity of the abused shell, the belle

Ooh, Western woman
Ooh, Western girl

Ooh, Western woman
Ooh, Western girl

And the children on Melrose strut their stuff
Isabsolute zero cold enough
And out in the valley warm and clean
The little ones sit by their TV screens
No thoughts to think, no tears to cry
All sucked dry
Down to the very last breath
Bartender, what is wrong with me
Why am I so out of breath
The captain said, Excuse me ma'am,
This species has amused itself to death
Amused itself to death
Amused itself to death

We watchedthe tragedy unfold
We did as we were told, we bought and sold
It was the greatest show on earth.. but then it was over
We oohed and aahed, we drove our racing cars
We ate our last few jars of caviar
And somewhere out there in the stars, a keen eyed lookout spied a flickering light
Our last hurrah
And when they found our shadows grouped 'round the TV sets
They ran down every lead,they repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every reason for our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death

No tears to cry, no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death....
Miraculous you call it babe, youain't seen nothing yet
They've got Pepsi in the Andes, they've got McDonalds in Tibet
Yosemite's been turned into a golf course for the Japs
And the Dead Sea is alive with rap
Between the Tigris and Euphrates there's a leisure centre now
They've got all kinds of sports, they've got Bermuda shorts
They had sex in Pennsylvania
A Brazilian grew a tree
A doctor in Manhattan saved a dyingman for free
It's a miracle, another miracle
By the grace of God Almighty and the pressures of the marketplace
The human race has civilised itself
It's a miracle

We've got warehouses of butter, we've got oceans of wine
We've got famine when we need it, got designer crime
We've got Mercedes, we've got Porsche
Ferrari and Rolls Royce
Yeah, we've got choice
She said meet me inthe garden of Gethsemene my dear
The Lord said Peter I can see your house from here
An honest man finally reaped what he had sown
And a farmer in Ohio has just repaid a loan
It's a miracle, another miracle
By the grace of God Almighty and the pressures of the marketplace
The human race has civilised itself
It's a miracle

We cower in our shelters with our hands over our ears...
