National Spy

We both grew up

the wrong side of town

You the smart maverick

me the class clown

We'd sneak smokes

at the back of the bus

Pretend to be cool

watch the girls fuss


Now years later

no word of a lie

that everyday guy

is a wire-tapping spy


As time moves on

I wonder why

a fun-loving guy

would be a national spy


Beijing beckons

Berlin’s a brief stop

All top secret

an underground op

Who do you trust?

who do you feed lies?

High stakes poker

and somebody dies


Now years later

no word of a lie

that everyday guy

is a wire-tapping spy


As time moves on

I wonder why

a fun-loving guy

would be a national spy


Why did he park his car in the lane

then head to Manhattan by subway train?

Why did he walk around Central Park

talk on a phone until way after dark?

He'll wait, say hi, then pass you by

a national spy with a deceptive eye


Bureaucrat, diplomat

ear to the ground

Desert rat, cave bat

deadly fox hound

Idle chat, this and that

never a sound

Watch your back tom cat

so you stick around


Twenty-four seven

when you’re a mole

Dodging detection

sure takes its toll

Who’s CIA?

where’s KGB?

Retrace your steps

and don’t drink the tea


Now years later

no word of a lie

that everyday guy

is a wire-tapping spy


As time moves on

I wonder why

a fun-loving guy

would be a national spy


Who are you now?

and what is your name?

Do you sleep nights?

how ruthless the game?

Here is a secret

tell it to none

Declassify life

if you wanna have fun


Now years later

no word of a lie

that everyday guy

is a wire-tapping spy


As time moves on

I wonder why

a fun-loving guy

would be a national spy


Bureaucrat, diplomat

ear to the ground

Desert rat, cave bat

deadly fox hound

Idle chat, this and that

never a sound

Watch your back tom cat

so you stick around
