    \{Verse 2\} (1:20-)
    Every morning I'm out at dawn with the dwarfs and the tramp
    For a silent communion lit from above by the sodium lamps
    Everyone I meet out on the street acts as if I wasn't there
    But they're all going to know who I am 'cos I can go out on the air

    Don't you give me your steak-reared milkboys, milkboys
    Half alive on empty white noise, white noise
    I got power, I'm proud to be loud; my signal goes out clear,
    I want everybody to know that Mozo is here
