It's tough for a working man in Nineteen Thirty Two
You know what with this economy falling through
I look to the good book for some strength and fortitude
But it brung no work after you gotta shoot yer mule

Well standards won't buy these kids shoes
And see what happens to morals when your rent is due
Could you look your wife in the eye and bring home no food
So I took that job in the Glue Factory, making glue

Well five bucks a day was never so cruel
It ain't no fun driving a bulldozer through a zoo
Now I served in Europe and I thought they were some fucked up dudes
It weren't nothing till you smelled Hell's cauldron brew

But that night, President Hoover, in a dream, came to me
He said
"Put down that bottle son, and set yourself free
For it is the uncommon man in this world who stands true
So pick yourself up son, and start anew"

It's at this point that the song changed track
I want your imagination, if it could
To leave 1930s depression era America
And come with me on a journey, as I sail, through the wind
With it in my hair, on my speedboat, to you
Beautiful thing, hanging at the pier, in your high heel boots
I'm here, in the future, with you, where am I? where I am!
Miami, Magic City, Miami, A.D. 1980
Miami, 1980, Miami, 1980, Miami, 1980, Miami, 1980

I've seen you on the beach and I've seen you on TV
So come on girl, we're leaving for the Keys
As I take you in my arms, don't be scared
This cocaine really emphasises the fresh sea air
