​The A-Bomb Woke Me Up

This song is by The Swimming Pool Q's and appears on the album The Deep End (1981).

A-Bomb woke me up
The only thing alarming was the noise
A bomb woke me up
The only thing alarming was the noise

Eighty foreign signals over the wire
Shortwaves crack, bottles of fire
Must be late; after One
Or, maybe some other number
A flash report, loud and clear
Penetrates my slumber

I don't care about cars
I don't care about Mars

A-Bomb woke me up
The only thing alarming was the noise
A bomb woke me up
The only thing alarming was the noise

Looked out the window, and, what I saw
Made me feel my age; little more
Let's go out for breakfast by the sea
A bamboo casting-rod
It descends into the sea
In the shadow of a hot pink god

I don't care about cars
I don't care about Mars

Is it just a trick of light?
A red carnation on Tuxedo Night?
A red carnation on Tuxedo Night?

A-Bomb woke me up
The only thing alarming was the noise
A bomb woke me up
The only thing alarming was the noise
Noise...
