I come from a long way away
And I know a fine thing when I see it, see it
For the same reason no one ever pointed a telescope at the sun
Talking about the Red Angels of N. Y. City

Who shot the shot?
Who got shot tonite?
Who shot the shot?
Who got shot tonite?

Not even five enforcement agencies can save their own
Never mind the people
Tonite it's raining on the Angels of the City (who got shot tonite?)
Did anyone prophesize these people?
Only Travis (who got shot tonite?)
Come in Travis

All the animals come out at night
Queens, fairies, dopers, junkies, sick venal (who got shot tonite?)
Some day a real rain will come and wash all the scum off the streets (who got shot tonite?)

Thank god for the rain to wash the trash off the sidewalk
Listen you screwheads
Here is a man who would not take it anymore
A man who stood up against the scum, the filth
Now I see clearly

Personally I know the alley
Where Jack feeds on the birds of night
Not even bubbies on bicycles
Can stop the blood and feathers flying

Who got shot tonite?
Who got shot tonite?
Who got shot tonite?

Waring overalls and for once and for all
What is the dream?
I'll tell it
To live like they do in the movies

San Juan you listening?
Yeah I bet you are
Hands up for Hollywood (Hooray)
I hear you

Snappy on the air
Hang in their
Wall to wall
You saved the world, what else?
You saved the girl
Chmpagne on ice
No stranger to Alcatraz to boot

Or strip it down
Chop it a little
Being reasonable
Just freedom to move, to live
For women to take a walk in the park at midnite (who got shot tonite?)
Hey, but this is serious (who got shot tonite?)
She can't even get back home (who got shot tonite?)

Who shot the shot that caught that cop that shot the cop that made him drop?

One of these days I'm gonna get myself off these islands
