Black Jacket Rebel, White Coated Girl
He was a black jacket rebel with a chip on his shoulder
tattoos on his chest and looks to smoulder.
Met a white coated girls in a crowded bar
and within half an hour they went to his car.
As the windows steamed up they both made a plan
they said 'Let's get as far away as we possibly can.'
Her engine revved up, his heart shifted gear
and they rode off unknown without any fear.
Europe treated our fair couple ever so well
where they both fell under each other's spell.
He robbed her a necklace from gay Paris
she nicked him some shoes when they hit Italy.
They're kisses were tender at the tower of Pisa
she made him feel like a proper geezer.
T'was Viva Espagne from dawn until dusk
she would dance to get cash, he would go out and busk.
She had quarrels with bosses and heated debates
so then they decided to run for the states.
The cracks were already starting to show
as they went from New York to Idaho.
But they got their kicks on route 66
with his concealed weapon and her bag of tricks.
They weren't saying much when they reached L.A
and had to go hungry on thanksgiving day.
So they held up some diners and decided to go
way down south to Mexico.
But now they were arguing like it was war
he loved the excitement, she found it a bore.
They were drowning their sorrows in tequila and rum
which kept them both warm in their squalid old slum.
They flew to Morocco in a very strange mood
she followed the music, he hated the food.
He asked himself 'What am i doing here
just scraping the barrel for bottles of beer?'
She asked herself 'What am i doing with him?
He may be a rebel but he's pretty damn dim.'
By the time they reached China they just didn't care
a once loving look now a vacant stare.
Some once warm arms now a cold prison cell
the scent of red roses now a rubbish dump smell.
The airport was next on a flight that was cheap
right before take off the girl fell asleep.
She woke up to find herself without a man
on a one way ticket heading straight for Japan.
He had given her a kiss and left her a sonnet
the plane took off but he wasn't on it.
And that was a story from around the world
about a black jacket rebel and a white coated girl.
