See-through Happiness

Lyrics by Burt LaFontaine

Downtown by the vanity show,
downtown by calamity row,
just to be, yeah we go.
And I watch with a prisoner's eye,
big things make a passionate guy
out of me, yeah they do.

And I profess my nonchalance
but Sally knows what Sally wants, more or less.
And we're practicing our see-through happiness.

Downtown by the vertical isles,
downtown, Dionysius smiles
on a few, every day.
Late night but the market awaits,
but we've got our priorities straight,
yeah we do, so we say.

High above the streetside bon vivants,
Sally knows what Sally wants, more or less.
And we're practicing our see-through happiness.

We understand each other now, we understand each other.
We've got our ticket in our heads,
hanging out above the ledge,
paying for the privilege of climbing up our golden wall.
Another Sisyphus is riding in his elevator, that's really all.

Downtown we're the popular ones,
downtown, baby, isn't it fun?
Honey, yeah, give me more.
Downtown and the legend prevails,
we've got our hot lips and apocryphal tales
of a life, never known.

10,000 breathless confidants,
Sally knows what Sally wants, more or less.
And we're showing off our see-through happiness.
