lyrics

Ed Ruscha

It’s a happy mess
A particular kind of heaven
Another Hollywood dream bubble popped
December sixteen nineteen thirty seven

Fat boy, Hot shot
Texas hairspray
Cold beer, beautiful girls
What else can I possibly say

I used to say Rhoos-ka
But it’s really Roo-shay
Petrol station on fire!
Country Cityscapes

Thirty four parking lots
Real estate opportunities
Babycakes with weights
Dysfunctional family

Utopian Slumps
A certain form of hell
Bliss bucket, Wall rockets
That was then this is now

I used to say Rhoos-ka
But it’s really Roo-shay
La Cienega on fire!
Damn traffic today…

Omaha, middle America
Get to the heart of matters
Standard Station, Amarillo
Nineteen sixty nine Crackers

Royal Road test
Honey I Twisted
I don’t want no
Goddamn retrospective

I used to say Rhoos-ka
But it’s really Roo-shay
Museum of art on fire!
Dance the night away…
