Lyrics

My wife Ilene and I
My wife Ilene and I
We embarked on a trip to Florida
We were trying to save our marriage and a manatee
Well sometimes we wouldn't speak for a week
Their bloody bodies would wash up on the beach
We paddled out on anything that would float
We threw the rocks at the people in their white power boats
My girl, the sweet Lenore
My girl, the sweet Lenore
We embarked on a trip to Algeria
We thought it was for the cause
We planted bombs they wouldn't even see
We were trying to oust the dirty French army
We ran and ran and hid by a cross
We fell in love as the blasts went off
Then one day she said it was over
I said, "Please don't leave me, I need you girl
I need yr help to save this world."
Oh, I went to Kansas City with a lady friend
Yeah, I went to Kansas City with a lady friend
We were up in Des Moins from Round the Bend yeah
I went to Kansas City with a lady friend
We dug in crazy love, deep drit ground
An Elevator fell it didn't make a sound
Now it's heart of silver
came raining down
It was dark and gritty in Kansas City
Then one day she said it was over
But I didn't buy 'cos we weren't sober
I said, "Please don't leave me, I need you girl
I need yr help to save this world."
