"Shattered" lyrics

Shattered

Shattered
Shattered

Love and hope and sex and dreams
Are still surviving on the street
Look at me
I'm in tatters

I'm a shattered
Shattered

Friends are so alarming
And my lover's never charming
Life's just a cocktail party
On the street
Big Apple
People dressed in plastic bags
Directing traffic
Some kind of fashion

Shattered
Laughter, joy and loneliness
And sex, and sex, and sex, and sex
Look at me
I'm in tatters

I'm a shattered
Shattered

All this chitter-chatter
Chitter-chatter
Chitter-chatter about
Shmatta, shmatta, shmatta
I can't give it away on Seventh Avenue
This town's been wearing tatters

Shattered
Shattered
Work and work for love and sex
Ain't you hungry for success
Success, success, success
Does it matter?
Shattered
Does it matter?

I'm shattered
Shattered

Ahhh, look at me
I'm a shattered
I'm a shattered
Look at me
I'm a shattered
Yeah
Shattered

Pride and joy and greed and sex
That's what makes our town the best
Pride and joy and dirty dreams
And still surviving on the street
And look at me
I'm in tatters
Yeah
I've been battered
What does it matter?
Does it matter?
Uh-huh
Does it matter?
Uh-huh
I'm a shattered

Shadoobie
Shattered
Shadoobie
Shattered
Shadoobie
Shattered
Shadoobie
Shattered
Shadoobie
Shattered
Shattered, shattered

Don't you know the crime rate
Is going up, up, up, up, up
To live in this town
You must be tough, tough, tough, tough, tough
You got rats on the west side
Bed bugs uptown
What a mess
This town's in tatters
I've been shattered
My brain's been battered
Splattered all over Manhattan

Uh-huh
This town's full of money grabbers
Go ahead, bite the Big Apple
Don't mind the maggots, uh-huh

Shadoobie
My brain's been battered
My friends they come around they
Flatter, flatter, flatter
Flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter
Pile it up
Pile it high
On the platter
