Pale Green Glow

To make a long tale short
There was a storm, there was a port
He said "do you have a lighthouse?"
She said "Do you mean a light?"
He said "I don't even smoke"
She said "You might after tonight"
High overhead the sky appeared red
In the pale green glow of the stereo

She wore something from a war
She found in an army surplus store
He said "Christian soldier or Christian Dior?"
She looked as if she'd never heard a joke before
He said "Excuse me if it sounds a little tacky
But let's make ca-ca, and not khaki
In the pale green glow of the stereo

The smokey all night D.J.
Was calling the play by play
They let Donna Summer do the talking
And say the things they could never bring themselves to say

He stared at her tattoo
A fuzzy dolphin in permanent blue
And like a drunken sailor
Lloyd Cole or Norman Mailor
He said that mammal saved me
And led me straight to you
She put back on her bra
It was the last time that he ever saw
Just the pale green glow of the stereo

High overhead the sky appeared red
In the pale green glow of the stereo
