While the music played you worked by candlelight
Those San Francisco nights
You were the best in town

Just by chance, you crossed the diamond with the pearl
You turned it on the world
That's when you turned the world around

Did you feel like Jesus?
Did you realize?
That you were a champion in their eyes

On the hill the stuff was laced with kerosene
But yours was kitchen clean
Everyone stopped to stare at your Technicolor motor home

Every a-frame had your number on the wall
You must have had it all
You'd go to L.A. on a dare and you'd go it alone

Could you live forever?
Could you see the day?
Could you feel your whole world fall apart and fade away?

Get along, get along Kid Charlemagne
Get along Kid Charlemagne

Now your patrons have all left you in the red
Your low rent friends are dead
This life can be very strange

All those day glow freaks who used to paint the face
They've joined the human race
Some things will never change

Son you were mistaken
You are obsolete
Look at all the white men on the street

Get along, get along Kid Charlemagne
Get along Kid Charlemagne

Clean this mess up else, we'll all end up in jail
Those test tubes and the scale
Just get them all out of here

Is there gas in the car?
Yes, there's gas in the car
I think the people down the hall, know who you are

Careful what you carry
'Cause the man is wise
You are still an outlaw in their eyes

Get along, get along Kid Charlemagne
Get along Kid Charlemagne
