Testo broadway melody of 1974 - genesis

Echoes of the Broadway Everglades


With her mythical madonnas still walking in their shades:

Lenny Bruce
declares a truce and plays his other hand.

Marshall McLuhan
casual viewin'
head buried in the sand.

Sirens on the rooftops wailing
but there's no ship sailing.

Groucho
with his movies trailing
stands alone with his punchline failing.

Klu Klux Klan serve hot soul food and the band plays 'In the Mood'

The cheerleader waves her cyanide wand
there's a smell of

peach blossom and bitter almonde.

Caryl Chessman sniffs the air and leads the parade
he know in a scent


you can bottle all you made.

There's Howard Hughes in blue suede shoes
smiling at the majorettes

smoking Winston Cigarettes.

And as the song and dance begins
the children play at home

with needles; needles and pins
