lyrics

I'll be waiting round (round back by the railroad tracks)
For the bombs to drop (round back by the railroad tracks)
My confidence is dissipating now (round back by the railroad tracks)
Feelin' south side flat (round back by the railroad tracks)

Will someone tell me what's going on?
We'll all be nuked into oblivion
But when you shoo wop shoo wop, you better dance with me
And pull me back from my insanity

Melancholia (melancholia)
Melancholia (melancholia)
Melancholia (melancholia)
Melancholia (melancholia)

Funiculi, funicula (round back by the railroad tracks)
To the top we'll go (round back by the railroad tracks)
We'll take an taxi or an ambulance there (round back by the railroad tracks)
To the south side flats (round back by the railroad tracks)

Will someone tell me what's going on? (I'll be waiting)
We'll all be nuked into oblivion (I'll be waiting)
But when you shoo wop shoo wop, you better dance with me
And pull me back from my insanity

I can't ease my mind
Ten years biding time
Live your dreams down south
But don't count me out
(Don't you count me out)

Melancholia
Melancholia
Melancholia
Melancholia

I coulda called ya (coulda called ya)
Shoulda warned ya (shoulda warned ya)
Coulda called ya, (shoulda warned ya)
Melancholia, (melancholia)

Will someone tell me what's going on? (I'll be waiting)
We'll all be nuked into oblivion (I'll be waiting)
But when you shoo wop shoo wop, you better dance with me
And pull me back from my insanity, woah-oh
