There’s a Mexican dead up on a power line
He’s deader than yesterday’s communion wine
He was trying to getting something he couldn’t afford for free
He was just a poor man stealing electricity
His heart went da da da da da da da
da da da da da da da

. . .

10,000 volts and now he’s gone
He’s hanging on a cross-tire above Babylon
Hey baby ain’t that just like you and me
Love is like stealing electricity
Two hearts go da da da da da da da
da da da da da da da

When the poverty of your spirit and the weakness of your flesh
Go dancing every night through other people’s trash
You don’t love yourself baby, what the hell you’re doing with me
You’re gonna burn baby burn stealing electricity
Two hearts go da da da da da da da, da da da da da da da

We all climb so high in search of the kindred soul
Till we grab hold to a live wire up on a highline pole
The laws of nature say you get nothing for free
Love is like stealing Electricity
Two hearts go da da da da da da da, da da da da da da da

. . .

There’s a Mexican dead up on a power line
He’s deader than yesterday’s communion wine
He was trying to getting something he couldn’t afford for free
He was just a poor man stealing electricity
His heart when da da da da da da da
da da da da da da da

His heart when da da da da da da da
da da da da da da da

Also found the lyrics for The Pugilist is 59 while I was looking, haven’t found Ash Wednesday this time, I’ll keep looking.
