for my next trick i’ll need a volunteer lyrics – warren zevon

“for my next trick i’ll need a volunteer”

i can saw a woman in two
but you won’t want to look in the box when i do
i can make love disappear
for my next trick i’ll need a volunteer

i can pull a rabbit out of a hat
i can pull it out but i can’t put it back
i can make love disappear
for my next trick i’ll need a volunteer

it’s lonely up here
when the tricks have been played
and the spotlights have faded
and the plans that we made
have fallen apart
it’s lonely as h*ll
and there’s no magic spell
for a broken heart

you can put me in chains and i will escape
better not wait up ’cause i might be late
i can make love disappear
for my next trick i’ll need a volunteer
it’s lonely up here
when the tricks have been played
and the spotlights have faded
and the plans that we made
have fallen apart
it’s lonely as h*ll
and there’s no magic spell
for a broken heart

i can saw a woman in two
but you won’t want to look in the box when i do
i can make love disappear
for my next trick i’ll need a volunteer
