Well, they blew up the Chicken Man in Philly last night
And they blew up his house, too
Yeah, them boys on the boardwalk getting ready for a fight
Gonna see what them racket boys can do

And there's trouble that's coming in from out of state
And the D.A. can't get no relief
Yeah, there's gonna be a fight out on the promenade
And the gambling commission's hanging on by the skin of his teeth

And, baby, everything dies, that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
So put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty
And meet me tonight in Atlantic City
Meet me tonight in Atlantic City
Meet me tonight in Atlantic City

Well, I know a man who lives under his covers
Uh uh uh uh uh uh
Lost his mind from the TV, now he's playing God

And somebody told him that he was no good at
Uh uh uh uh uh uh
He's talking out of the left side of his mouth

He won't follow
These lines he's drawn for him
And he don't want to try
Seeing is believing
Lord knows what he sees here every night

Three little boys dress up in the morning
Uh uh uh uh uh uh
Come back home from the school yard talkin' bout love

But on this occasion the boys feel the same
Uh uh uh uh uh uh
Something's holding them back there, I bet it was their mom

And they won't follow
These lines he's drawn for them
They don't want to try
Seeing is believing
Lord knows what he sees here every night

We both know
That people change
When truth's not part of their lives
I've seen the love in their eyes
Don't say goodbye
Goodbye, yeah

I know a man who wakes up in the evening
Uh uh uh uh uh uh
Lost his mind from the TV, now he's blaming God

And somebody told him that he's good for nothing
Uh uh uh uh uh uh
Now he screen prints American tee shirts through the night

And he won't follow
These lines he's drawn for them
And he don't want to try
Seeing is believing
Lord knows what he sees here
Seeing is believing
Lord knows what he sees here
Seeing is believing
Lord knows what he sees here
Seeing is believing
Lord knows what he sees here
Seeing is believing
Lord knows what he sees here
Seeing is believing
Lord knows what he sees here
Seeing is believing
Lord knows what he sees here
Seeing is believing
Lord knows what he sees here
