The complete lyrics: (main riff) (Verse:) Welcome to this empty ministry of plenty As I'm sure you know We're clearly on display here To remind you should you stray from here Or decide to roam (Prechorus:) Dossers dream of gossamer And kssing with tongues Well, they're falling in love with anyone Races from all places and all under one sun, well it sure was no fun So I got up and ran, ran, ran from Mungo City (Chorus:) Mungo City- Where are you? You make us grey when skies are blue Mungo City, in the sky Keeps a watchful eye on you and I (Main riff) (Verse:) Don't think you're even thinking Even though you're thinking: keep it underground They're sending out distress codes And playing with your mind though You won't hear a sound (Prechorus:) Nazis in the Japanese cars from Japan Well, they're falling in love if onlythey can I'm telling you the tribesman wouldn't stand for this, man Well, it sure was no scam So I got up and ran, ran, ran from Mungo City (Chorus:) Mungo City- Where are you? You make us grey when skies are blue (and) Mungo City, in the sky Keeps a watchful eye on you tonight (Main riff) (Chorus with vocoder) (Chorus) (Main riff repeated with vocoder until fade out...)
