  • If coke
    Is a mystery
    Michael Jackson
    If beauty is truth
    And surgery the fountain of youth
    What am I to do
    Have I got the gifts to get me through
    The gates of that mansion
    If OJ is more than a drink
    And a Big Mac bigger than you think
    And perfume is an obsession
    And talk shows confession
    What have we got to lose
    Another push and maybe we'll be through
    The gates of that mansion

    I never bought a lotto ticket
    I never parked in anyone's space
    The banks they're like cathedrals
    I guess casinos took their place
    Love, come on down
    Don't wake her she'll come around

    Chance is a kind of religion
    Where you're damned for plain hard luck
    I never did see that movie
    I never did read that book
    Love, come on down
    Let my numbers come around

    Don't know if I can hold on
    Don't know if I'm that strong
    Don't know if I can wait that long
    'Till the colors come flashing
    And the lights go on

    Then will there be no time of sorrow
    Then will there be no time for shame
    And though I can't say why
    I know I've got to believe

    We'll go driving in that pool
    It's who you know that gets you through
    The gates of the Playboy mansion
    Playboy mansion
    The Playboy mansion

    Then will there be no time of sorrow
    Then will there be no time for shame
    Then will there be no time of sorrow
    Then will there be no time for shame Writer/s: Adam Clayton, David Evans, Laurence Mullen, Paul David Hewson
