The Farallons: Here, the music

One Shot Deal

(The Farallons)
Words & Music by Tom Richardson

 

Gather round children and hear a tale

of when a man puts his soul up for sale.

Buyers are plenty and the price is dear,

And in the end one thing becomes clear

 

This is a one shot deal, and we better get it right

    Take care when you're dealing with gypsies in the night.

This is a one shot deal, and the cards are marked,

    So you better pay attention

    cause this is a one shot deal.

 

Look upward people into the night sky

And witness a star shooting by.

Sooner or later there will be one,

to come down and the judgment will be done.

 

This is a one shot deal, and we better get it right

    Take care when you're dealing with gypsies in the night.

This is a one shot deal, and the cards are marked,

    So you better pay attention

    cause this is a one shot deal.

 

As for the moral, as for the truth

I'm afraid that all comes down to you

Cause if we seek salvation

in a saint or a demagogue

We may as well pop the clutch

and put the peddle to the metal in the fog

 

This is a one shot deal, and we better get it right

    Take care when you're dealing with gypsies in the night.

This is a one shot deal, and the cards are marked,

    So you better pay attention

    cause this is a one shot deal.
