HAPPYLAND Joe Jackson It was on a summer night, she says, a year ago today Packed, the place was packed The chicos lookin' for some play He wore a satin shirt and said a prayer to Yemayá And he was calm and handsome As they squeezed through to the bar The girls were in tight dresses, just like sweets in cellophane Everyone was there Sabrosón from Spanish Harlem And luz from Camaguey In her hand a single rose, and in her mouth a razorblade Hot, the place was hot Too many people to be safe Who cared It was our night Watch us seize the day And dance it all away... Bailamos, esa noche, bailamos In Happyland It was on a summer night, she says - yes, it was a year ago Hot, the place was hot but where else were they gonna go And then she heard the screams And saw the smoke come down And then it really turned into the hottest club in town She remembers all the firetrucks And that maldito TV crew And he, he didn't make it So, "mi amor, this song's for you" She's got red shoes on her feet A nd a red smile on her face And people say she's loca, to go back into that place Who cared This is my night Watch me seize the day And dance it all away... Bailaré, esta noche, bailaré In Happyland
