He Looks Like Spencer Tracy Now Lyrics

He Looks Like Spencer Tracy Now - Deacon Blue

There's a shadow on his

Photograph on Tinian '45

 

Smiling like a college boy

Who's glad to be alive

 

But now he owns a factory

 

And a store in Los Alamos

 

A wife called Beverly sells

Second hand Ford Motors

 

He may have taken pictures

 

Been caught in Albuquerque

 

Flown in great artiste

 

On a mushroom cloud

 

He may be a senator or

A general or a turn key

 

But I know he looks

Like Spencer Tracy now

 

And he cries all night

 

And he cries all night

 

And he cries all night

 

And he cries all night

 

And he may have been with Oppenheimer

 

Shaken Einstein's hand

 

Did we have to drop the bomb

 

You bet to save this land

 

He was only taking pictures

 

Around the critical mass

 

While the troops on Tinian island

 

Sang 'Follow the bouncing ball'

 

White Christmas

 

He may have been a nationalist

 

A physicist or a pacifist

 

But he's just taking pictures

 

And he'll do it anyhow

 

Well I have seen that movie

 

Of Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde

 

And I know he looks

Like Spencer Tracy Now

 

And he cries all night

 

And he cries all night

 

And he cries all night

 

And he cries all night

 

Tears falling down the streets

 

And he cries all night

 

And he cries all night

 

And he cries all night

 

And he cries all night

 

Oh he cries all night
