lyrics

“In which a young couple takes desperate measures to dodge the WWII draft.”

The Voice of America
Whispers in our ears
“All tough boys
Go pack your bags”

A message in a grimmish tone
We, for now, ignore
I light another Chesterfield
Look to the skies, and we relax

Yes
I wish that time stood still
Dear
Go gather our bags

All we need is a little bit of luck
A Cadillac
And a small amount of bucks
We’ll stay at the Last Frontier
Mexico’s close

Yes we’ll roam the Strip
On the down low for a while
Play Caribbean stud
While you flirt and wink and smile
In the evening we’ll be free
Gone to Merida

We hide in a damp motel
Lit by neonlight
Close the door
And catch our breath

We’d fight if there’d be time for that
Instead we hug and sigh
I light my final Chesterfield
Stare at the door, and we relax

Yes
I wish that time stood still
Dear
Grab all that is left

All we need is a little bit of luck
A Hillman Minx
And a small amount of bucks
We’ll drive to that last frontier
Mexico’s close

Yes we’ll drive on down
US highway 95
Entertain some men
I take pictures for their wives
In the morning we’ll be free
Gone to Merida
