You can't have a cupboard  if there ain't no    wall.

You got to move, there's no time left to stall.

There's a fever on the freeway,  blacks out the night.

There's a slippin' on the stairway,  just don't feel right.

And there's a rumblin' in the bedroom     and a flashin' of light.

There's the old laughing lady,  everything is all right.
