Poem about Miami

29 06 2009

This is a song by U2 but it was written as a poem. I like it a lot.

Weather ’round here choppin’ and changin’
Surgery in the air
Print shirts and southern accents
Cigars and big hair
We got the wheels and petrol is cheap
Only went there for a week
Git the sun got the sand
Got the batteries in the handy cam
Her eyes all swimming pool blue
Dumb bells on a diving board
Baby’s always attracted to the things she’s afraid of
Big girl with the sweet tooth
Watches the skinny girl in the photo shoot
Freshmen squeaky clean
She tastes of chlorine

Miami

My mammy

Love the movies
Love to walk those movie sets
Get to shoot someone in the foot
Get to smoke some cigarettes
No big deal we know the score
Just back from the video store
Got the car and the car chase
What’s he got inside the case
I want a close up of that face
Here comes the car chase

Miami

My mammy

Miami

I bought two new suits
Miami
Pink and blue
Miami
I took a picture of you
My mammy
Getting hot in a photo booth
Miami
I said you looked like a madonna
You said maybe
Said I want to have your baby
Baby
Baby
We could make something beautiful
Something that wouldn’t be a problem
At least not in
Miami
Some places are like your auntie
But there`s no place like Miami

My mammy
