LyricsEdit

Angel
New York City


Collins
Uh-huh


Angel
Center of the universe


Collins
Sing it girl


Angel
Times are shitty
But I'm pretty sure they can't get worse


Collins
I hear that


Angel
It's a comfort to know
When you're singing the hit the road blues
That anywhere else you could possibly go
After New York would be, a pleasure cruise


Collins
Now you're talking


Well, I'm thwarted by a metaphysic puzzle
And I'm sick of grading papers that I know
And I'm shouting in my sleep, I need a muzzle
All this misery pays no salary, so


Let's open up a restaurant in Santa Fe
Oh, sunny Santa Fe would be nice
Let's open up a restaurant in Santa Fe
And leave this to the roaches and mice


All
Oh oh oh


Angel
You teach?


Collins
Yeah, I teach, computer age philosophy
But my students would rather watch TV


Angel
America


All
America


Collins
You're a sensitive aesthete
Brush the sauce onto the meat
You can make the menu sparkle with rhyme
You can drum a gentle drum
I could seat guests as they come
Chatting not about Heidegger but wine


Let's open up a restaurant in Santa Fe
Our labors would reap financial gains
We'll open up a restaurant in Santa Fe
And save from devastation our brains


We'll pack up all our junk and fly so far away
Devote ourselves to projects that sell
We'll open up a restaurant in Santa Fe
Forget this cold Bohemian Hell


All
Oh oh oh


Collins
Do you know the way to Santa Fe?
You know, Tumbleweeds, prairie dogs


All 
Yeah
