      About "The Sins of Memphisto"

      Lyrics for John Prine - "The Sins of Memphisto"

      From the bells of St Mary
      To the Count of Monte Cristo
      Nothing can stop
      Nothing can stop
      Nothing can stop
      The sins of Memphisto

      Sally used to play with her hula hoops
      Now she tells her problems to therapy groups
      Grampa's on the front lawn staring at a rake
      Wondering if his marriage was a terrible mistake
      I'm sitting on the front steps drinking orange crush
      Wondering if it's possible if I could still blush
      Uh huh, oh yeah

      A boy on a bike with corduroy slacks
      Sleeps in the river by the railroad tracks
      He waits for the whistle on the train to scream
      So he can close his eyes and begin to dream
      Uh huh, oh yeah

      The hands on his watch spin slowly around
      With his mind on a bus that goes all over town
      Looking at the babies and the factories
      And listening to the music of Mister Squeeze
      As if by magic or remote control
      He finds a piece of a puzzle
      That he missed in his soul
      Uh huh, oh yeah

      Adam and Eve and Lucy and Ricky
      Bit the big apple and got a little sticky
      Esmeralda and the Hunchback of Notre Dame
      They humped each other like they had no shame
      They paused as they posed for a Polaroid photo
      She whispered in his ear "Exactly Odo Quasimoto"
