jimmy dean lyrics – icehouse

there’s a mist over broadway
breathing cool sheets of rain
lights his last cigarette
and turns his back to the wind

she says, baby, i don’t know
just how to explain
and i can’t see the sense
and i can’t play this game

but he’s not even listening
he stares at the ground
and she won’t ever know
what was on his mind

well, now he’s a rebel without a cause
hey c’mon, let’s make a deal
see your name in lights just like jimmy dean
live and die behind the wheel

opened out on the highway
leaving her far behind
there’s a star down on sunset
he says, yeah, this one’s mine

she says, baby, i don’t know
just how to explain
and i can’t see the sense
and i can’t play this game

but he’s not even listening
he stares at the ground
and she won’t ever know
what was on his mind

well, now he’s a rebel without a cause
hey c’mon, let’s make a deal
see your name in lights just like jimmy dean
live and die behind the wheel

well, now mr d whispered in his ear
hey c’mon, let’s make a deal
engine? s running hot singing jimmy dean
any time there’s time to kill

he drove like a demon
and he burned up the screen
but he never looked back no
she just wasted my time

well, now he’s a rebel without a cause
hey c’mon, let’s make a deal
see your name in lights just like jimmy dean
live and die behind the wheel

gonna let those horses loose again
hey c’mon, let’s make a deal
see them running wild just like jimmy dean
overdrive in chrome and steel

hey c’mon
hey c’mon, let’s make a deal
well, now he’s a rebel without a cause
live and die behind the wheel
