Shooting Shark Lyrics

Shooting Shark - Blue Oyster Cult

Well I bumped inside the magic man

 

And he laid some tricks on me

 

He said "You do need help my friend"

I whispered "Obviously"

 

He laid a spread of Jacks and Queens

 

And he bade me take my pick

 

But every face it had your face

I cried out "I am sick"

 

Sick of hauling your love around

Want to run my train alone

 

But the engine tracks straight through your heart

 

And weighs me like a stone

 

Oh it's a hard load to love you

 

It takes up all my time having you

 

So familiar

 

Like last life's

 

Nursery rhyme

 

So I gave away the pictures

 

And your golden ring

 

And the phone calls you sent me

 

And the silver birds that sing

 

Then the man he told me something

 

That really brought me down

 

Your things were thrown away it's true

 

But you were still in town

 

Sick of hauling your love around

 

Wanna run my train alone

 

But the engine tracks straight through your heart

 

And weighs me like a stone

 

Oh it's a hard load to love you

 

It takes up all my time having you

 

So familiar

Like last life's

 

Nursery rhyme

 

The magician let a message

 

It flashes when I hide

 

Accept the chains of loving

Accept or else remove yourself from her side

 

And do without her love

 

And I lay back with a steel chain

 

I keep it by my side

 

I could mail a letter to you but I still

 

Have my pride

 

Sick of hauling your love around

Wanna run my train alone

 

But the engine tracks straight through your heart

 

And weighs me like a stone

 

Three times I've sent you back from me

 

Three times my bones gone dry

 

And three times I've seen the shooting shark

 

Lighting up the sky

 

Oh it's a hard load to love you babe

It takes my breath away

 

The fourth time round

 

Is the last time round

 

There's nothing else to say
