Miami
by U2

  • Weather 'round here choppin' and changin'
    Surgery in the air
    Print shirts and southern accents
    Cigars and big hair
    We got the wheels and petrol is cheap
    Only went there for a week
    Got the sun got the sand
    Got the batteries in the handy cam
    Her eyes all swimming pool blue
    Dumb bells on a diving board
    Baby's always attracted to the things she's afraid of
    Big girl with the sweet tooth
    Watches the skinny girl in the photo shoot
    Freshmen squeaky clean
    She tastes of chlorine

    My mammy

    Love the movies, babe
    Love to walk those movie sets
    Get to shoot someone in the foot
    Get to smoke some cigarettes
    No big deal we know the score
    Just back from the video store
    Got the car and the car chase
    What's he got inside the case
    I want a close up of that face
    Here comes the car chase

    I bought two new suits
    Miami
    Pink and blue
    Miami
    I took a picture of you
    My mammy
    Getting hot in a photo booth
    Miami
    I said you looked like a madonna
    You said maybe
    Said I want to have your baby
    Baby
    Baby
    We could make something beautiful
    Something that wouldn't be a problem
    We could make something beautiful
    Something that wouldn't be a problem
    At least not in Miami
    You know, some places are like your auntie
    But there's no place like

    Miami
    Miami
    My mammy
