All the late night bargains have been struck
Between the satin beaus and their belles
Prehistoric garbage trucks
Got the city to themselves

Echoes and whores, dinosaurs
They're all doing the monster mash
And taxis and the whore
Are only taking calls for cash

I don't know how it happened
It all took place so quick
All I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick

And now my door was standing open
Security were laid back and lax
Yeah, my heart had gotten broken
He must have had a pass key made out of wax

It was robbery with insolence
And I played the blues in twelve bars
Down the Lover's Lane
I never had the intelligence for to use
Twelve keys hanging off of my chain

I don't know how it happened
It all took place so quick
And all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick

It's past the last call for more alcohol
Past recall has been here and gone
Landlord, he finally paid us all
The satin jazzmen have put away their horns

And I'm standing outside of this wonderland
Bereaved and bereft
Finally come to understand
The bottle's empty, man, there's nothing left

Don't know how it happened
It was faster than the eye can flick
And all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick
