Nothing To Fear (But Fear Itself) lyrics

Hey neighbor let me give you some advice
The russians are about to pulverize us
In our sleep tonight
That is if the crazy arabs
Or the riots dont get us first
And the fire will rain down from the sky
The fire will rain down from the sky
People will die--people will die
People will die--people will die
But go ahead sleep tight in your beds
Remember what the wise man said

Chorus
Theres nothing to fear nothing to fear
Theres nothing to fear nothing to fear
Theres nothing to fear (but fear itself)
Theres nothing to fear (but fear itself)
And the temperatures starting to drop now
The temperatures starting to drop now
The temperatures starting to drop now . . .

Hey little girl wont you come this way
Wont you let me buy you candy or perhaps a chocolate shake
Or perhaps some nice cocaine or perhaps a little kiss
Or perhaps a ride in my big car
Perhaps a ride in my big car
Wont you make an old man happy
Wont you make an old man happy
Wont you let me show you paradise
(dont ask your mother for advice)

Chorus

If they dont turn you into a junkie or a zombie on the street
If they dont turn you into a yo-cat or a grinning jesus freak
If they dont take away your brains or turn your body inside out
If they dont take away your passion with a color tv set
Theyll take away your heart and soul
Theyll take away your heart and soul
Theyll take away your heart and soul
Dont let them take away your heart and soul
But remember what the wise man said

Chorus
