John Cooper Clarke - The New Assassin



SKIP THE ROADBLOCK HERE SHE COMES

 GET A LOAD OF THE PRETTY BLUE GUN

ANY SLICK TRICK UNDER THE SUN

SHE'LL DO IT IF IT ISN'T DONE

SHE MADE ARRANGEMENTS SHE COULDN'T COME

SHE DRESSES LIKE A SECRETARY AND LIVES LIKE A NUN

YOUR CRIME IS THE RADIANT PASSION

IT'S TIME FOR THE NEW ASSASSIN


          COOL KILLER TOP OF THE CLASS
         
          THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SHATTERPROOF GLASS

          WORKS AS FAST AS THE CAMERAS FLASH

          WITH THE CYANIDE CIGARETTES AND THE CS GAS

          IT'S HER JOB - DOESN'T BAT AN EYELASH

          SHE'S WORKING FOR THE PERISHING MASS

          THE BREADLINE'S BACK IN FASHION

          IT'S TIME FOR THE NEW ASSASSIN


A MELODY PLAYED ON A HAND GRENADE

FROM THE RIFLE RANGE IN THE GREEN ARCADE

AS  THE RAIN  FELL DOWN ON THE BIG PARADE

 MESSED UP THE MOTORCADE - MUCKED UP THE MASQUERADE

SECRET WEAPONS BECOME DISPLAYED

 IN THE HANDS OF HALF A DOZEN AIDES

JUST FOUR MEN AND A COUPLE OF GAY BLADES

 SHANTUNG SUITS AND SHATTERPROOF SHADES

SHOOT UP ANYBODY WHO HAPPENS TO BE PASSING

EVERYBODY BUT THE NEW ASSASSIN


             ONE LINK IN THE HUMAN CHAIN
     
             IN THE CITY WHERE IT ALWAYS RAINS

             NO PROFIT OR PERSONAL GAIN

             ARE THE SILENT RULES IN A LONESOME GAME

             ONE FACE IN A PURPLE FRAME

             A BLACK BORDER ROUND THE NAME

             CHALK MARKS AROUND A BLOOD STAIN

             THIN BLUE LINE RED LIGHT FLASHING

             IT'S TIME FOR THE NEW ASSASSIN

             WHAT TIME DID YOU SEE IT HAPPEN

             IT'S TIME FOR THE NEW ASSASSIN
