Devious Donna
as matter of honour
went to San Diego
to see the eclipse
two weeks later
She’d gone insane
with a bowl of tequila
and a jar of cocaine

That’s life in the land of the living

Luscious Liza
was an actor
São Paulo
Boca do Lixo
things went wrong
in front of the camera
and she became the face
of Cracolândia

That’s life in the land of the living

Honolulu Lulu
went cuckoo
crossing the Andes
on the back of a horse
she soon knew
it’s a stupid thing to do
she’d rather be in a Wakiki tiki

That’s life in the land of the living
