Yuppies In The Sky

текст песни Peter, Paul & Mary

As I went out one evenin' down Columbus Avenue
All the sushi bars were shuttered, dark cantinas too
And I stood there in the darkness,as an empty cab rolled by
Then all at once I heard the sound of yuppies in the sky

Then the herd came down Columbus, for as far as I could see
All the men were wearing Polo, and the women wore Esprit
Each yuppie had a walk-man and as each one passed me by
I saw their sad expressions and I heard their mournful cry

Chorus:
Condos for sale, condos to buy, yuppies in the sky

Each one was wearing running shoes upon the ghostly deck
And each one had a cotton sweater wrapped around the neck
They all held out their credit cards and tried in vain to buy
But not a store was open to the yuppies in the sky.

(Chorus)

(The yuppie-i-o)
I've seen them in commercials sailin' boats and playin' ball
Pourin' beer for one another cryin', ";Why not have it all?";
Now I saw the ghostly progress as the winds around me blew
Till I, I felt the urge to purchase a BMW

(Chorus)

All the salad bars were empty, all the Quiche Lorraine was gone
I heard the yuppies crying as they vanished in the dawn
