Welcome to El Paso
The Safest City in America
Welcome to El Paso, Texas
The Safest City in America

There's not a whole lot that you can do here
but if you go across the border, there's not a whole lot that
you can do to keep yourself alive there
You might run into a red-bearded trick-skiing Swedish
drummer here
His name is Per Spett and he can appear out of
nowhere anywhere
even here in El Paso, Texas
The Safest City in America

You might run into a tall mysterious German author here
and if you do you can call him von Archimboldi
but he's a writer, so he's everywhere
even here in El Paso, Texas
The Safest City in America

You might see Daniel Day Lewis riding into town naked on a
horse here
without a single hair on his whole body
and when he dances, you'll have seen the Devil
right here in El Paso, Texas
The Safest City of its Size in All of America

You might hear Jesus playing on the radio here
on the saxophone on the smooth jazz station of all places
as the lights across the border become clear
right here in El Paso, Texas
The Safest City of its Size in All of America
