      About "Wild Bill Donovan"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "Wild Bill Donovan"

      In a time between two wars
      When a slip could get you killed
      A man appeared with a master plan
      And they called him Wild Bill

      He talked you 'round in circles
      When he was done, yeah, you knew less
      And he started up the company one
      From what was left of the O.S.S. two

      [Chorus:]
      Wild Bill, Wild Bill
      The secrets that he'd hold
      Wild Bill, Wild Bill
      He slept out in the cold

      Now he was there in '45
      When the good war had wound down
      The enemy had all been caught
      But some could not be found

      The price of information
      Sometimes takes a sacrifice
      A secret traded for a life
      But someone pays the price

      [Chorus]

      The world was on fire for Bill
      He had to take control
      The enemy was close at hand
      The tanks were told to hold

      But deep inside Bill's massive head
      A master plan did bloom
      Buy the information out
      By sellin' a brand new tune

      [Chorus]
