Play It Safe

This song is by Iggy Pop and appears on the album Soldier (1980).

Say Ta
(Ta, ta, ta, ta, ta, ta, ta)

Eisenhower saw the thing (Oh)
He said this is sickening (Oh)
I swear I saw the very thing (Oh)
I saw it in America

Let's play safe
I never knew how
How to play safe
You told me how
How to play safe
A thousand times

I don't believe in fairies any more

Today I saw a very very thing
But that's another song
You're too simple minded
Let's play it safe

What do we have in common?
Play it safe
(It was a real thing)
What do we have in common?
Play it safe
(I'll tell you something safe)

I want to be a criminal
Play it safe
(Oh I wanna be a criminal)

I want to be a criminal
Play it safe
(And it's that real thing inside of a criminal mind)

What do we have in common
Play it safe
(That keeps me going, all the time)

What do we have in common
Play it safe
(That very very thing that I find so sublime)

I want to be a criminal
Play it safe
(And I wanna know)
(Oh, I wanna know)

I want to be a criminal
Play it safe
(And I wanna know)
(I wanna know, I wanna know)

What do we have in common
Play it safe
(Rockin' and reelin' like Al Capone)

What do we have in common
Play it safe
(Slippin' and slidin' like Joey Gallo)
(Movin' and groovin' with the Son of Sam)

I want to be a criminal
Play it safe
(Splish splash I was, Jim Jones)
