The word was a few years ago when U2 came out with their latest work "Pop," that they really had intended to name it "Miami," but the record company decided that the European reaction to that title would be disastrous.  Nancy, I've noted that that in response to some recent messages concerning a possible attack on Iraq, you signed yourself off as "distressed."  Girl, this is not 1967.  There is no Vietnam war.  No mean cops are killing kids at Kent State.  There are no domonstrations. The young men are too busy studying and playing soldiers on video games and the young women are too busy studying and playing Madonna at night clubs. Therefore, Nancy, instead of being all stressed out over a possible war that will maybe last a week, turn your eye to the Senate and hope next month that the Democrats hold onto it.

Miami, my mammy
Miami

I bought two new suits...Miami
Pink and blue...Miami
I took a picture of you...My mammy
Getting hot in a photo booth...Miami
I said you looked like a Madonna
You said...maybe...
Said I want to have your baby...baby
We could make something beautiful
Something that wouldn't be a problem
We could make something beautiful
Something that wouldn't be a problem
At least not in...Miami
