The Lyrics

I know it's in poor taste but I just couldn't help it. The words follow the original studio recording - not the inaccurate lyric pages on the net.
All the crowds have come
Here to urge him on
People don't cheer the leaper
Not from the roof, the cliff or the train
I can't be like they are
Come on people...Don't cheer the leaper
People understand...Don't cheer the leaper
They're unable to fly...Don't cheer the leaper
Maybe I'm the man.

Now the wine is done
Fear she wants me gone
Givin' up and jumpin' it
I declare it an emergency
Givin' up and jumpin' it
Forty cryin' men and women everyday...They're givin' up and jumpin' it
Forty cryin' men and women everyday...No distinct happiness
Another forty jumpers dyin' everyday...I could be like they are
Come on people...Don't cheer the leaper
People understand...Don't cheer the leaper
They're unable to fly...Don't cheer the leaper
Maybe I'm the man.

Love is through and done
Now my mind has gone
Came the last bout of madness
And it was clear I couldn't go on
Then the roar was awesome as the mob it cheered
The tension grew as the edge I cleared
The children spew as the brain appeared
Laying dented an' sprayed
Come on people...But I showed no fear
And they ran away...I was unable to fly
They looked up and said "It's high"...I had destroyed a cop car
They were clappin' their hands...I had destroyed a cop car
Come on people...Don't cheer the leaper.
