liar liar with your pants
on fire, white spades hang-
in’ on the telephone wire,
gamblers reevaluate along
the dotted line, you’ll
never recognize yourself
on heartattack and vine.

doctor lawyer beggar
man thief, philly joe remark-
able looks on in disbelief,
if you want a taste of mad-
ness, you’ll have to wait in
line, you’ll probably see
someone you know on
heartattack and vine.

boney’s high on china
white, shorty found a punk,
don’t you know there ain’t
no devil, there’s just god
when he’s drunk, well this
stuff will probably kill
you, let’s do another line,
what you say you meet me
down on heartattack and

see that little jersey girl
in the see-through top,
with the peddle pushers
sucking on a soda pop, well
i bet she’s still a virgin but
it’s only twenty-five ’til
nine, you can see a million
of ’em on heartattack and

better off in iowa against
your scrambled eggs, than
crawling down cahuenga
on a broken pair of legs,
you’ll find your ignorance
is blissful every goddamn
time, you’re waitin’ for the
rtd on heartattack and vine.
