about

From the musical revue BOX OFFICE of the DAMNED

lyrics

SOMETIMES I GO TO CONCERTS,
SOMETIMES I GO TO GAMES,
I'M NUMBERED AMONG MANY,
I'VE HAD SO MANY NAMES.

NO ONE IS JUST LIKE ME,
I'VE A PLACE THAT'S ALL MY OWN,
IT'S FOR A FLEETING MOMENT
BUT THAT MOMENT IS MY OWN.

FOR PURE ANTICIPATION,
I AM ALL YOU'VE GOT TO CLUTCH,
WHEN YOU HOLD ME WITH A PURPOSE
I FOLD BENEATH YOUR TOUCH.


I'M A TICKET. . . HE’S A TICKET…
SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TICKET
I’M A TICKET… HE’S A TICKET…
SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TICKET


I'M BORN IN MANY COLORS,
I WORK IN SEVERAL SHADES,
AT LOCAL PENNY PARTIES
OR INAUGURAL PARADES.

I'M UNDERNEATH THE GARFIELD MAGNET
ON THE FREEZER DOOR,
OR THE POCKET OF AN OXFORD
LYING ON THE CLOSET FLOOR.

REGARDLESS WHERE I LIE IN WAIT
I WAIT YOUR GUARANTEE,
YOU WILL FINALLY SEE EXACTLY
WHAT YOU'VE PAID TO SEE


I'M A TICKET. . . HE’S A TICKET…
SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TICKET
I’M A TICKET… HE’S A TICKET…
SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TICKET


FOR A LITTLE PIECE OF PAPER
THAT EXCHANGES MANY HANDS,
I'M A STATIONERY PASSPORT
TO SO MANY LANDS.
BUT BEFORE YOU LEAVE TO SEE
THE WORLDS YOU YEARN SO MUCH TO SEE,
DON'T FORGET ME.
OH, PLEASE REMEMBER ME
DON'T FORGET YOUR TICKETS!

I'M A TICKET. . . HE’S A TICKET…
SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TICKET
I’M A TICKET… HE’S A TICKET…
SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TICKET

OCCASIONALLY A BOOKMARK
OR PRESSED WITH PHOTOGRAPHS,
ONE HALF OF ME IS BUSINESS
THE OTHER HALF IS LAUGHS.

ROMANTICS CONTEMPLATE
THE FATE I SOMETIMES TAG ALONG,
THE ADVENTURE IS ALL OVER
BUT THE FEELING STILL GOES STRONG.

SO WHETHER I AM RAFFLED OFF
TO KEEP FRESH WATERS CLEAR,
OR PURCHASED TO EXPERIENCE
A FALLING CHANDELIER,
FOREVER I'LL REMAIN A MEMORY
ALMOST OUT OF SIGHT,

'TIL YOU WHISPER WITH A SMILE
"HEY, I REMEMBER THAT NIGHT!
HERE'S MY TICKET!"

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TICKET.
HE’S A TICKET…
SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TICKET.

The other half.....Is yours.
