  • Passport, past life, a drifter's demons
    Alone, lost, and fast running out of reasons
    For not falling in with the Foreign Legion
    (Sha na na na, sha na na na na)

    Cold, kicking the can around town one evening
    Streets all abandoned, bars barely breathing
    A whirlwind, a woman, and a famous feeling
    (Sha na na na, sha na na na na)

    A cool, hard beauty, christened with composure
    Boots, skirt, blouse, shawl over her shoulders
    Skin soft, lips colored crimson clover
    (Sha na na na, sha na na na na)

    A slow-burning sermon to have and hold her
    But ever since she started sleeping over
    Oh, Lord, I'm living like a Holy Roller
    (Sha na na na, sha na na na na)

    A red ammo romance in the summer heat
    In parks, on patios, and in the streets
    Our mission, making moments into memories
    (Sha na na na, sha na na na na)

    And when winter's off the leash and on the loose
    We ward off the weather with a witch's brew
    Of dominoes and prose and Delta blues
    (Sha na na na, sha na na na na)
    (Sha na na na, sha na na na na)
    (Sha na na na, sha na na na na)
    (Sha na na na, sha na na na na)

    (Sha na na na, sha na na na na)
    And no known drink
    No known drug
    Could ever hold a candle to your love

    And no known drink
    No known drug
    Could ever hold a candle to your love

    And no known drink
    No known drug
    Could ever hold a candle to your love

    And no known drink
    No known drug
    Could ever hold a candle to your love Writer/s: Brian Andrew King, David Prowse
