We get some rules to follow
That and this, these and those
No one knows
We get these pills to swallow
How they stick in your throat
Taste like gold
Oh, what you do to me
No one knows

I realize you're mine
Indeed a fool am I
I realize you're mine
Indeed a fool am I

I journey through the desert
Of the mind with no hope
I follow
I drift along the ocean
Dead lifeboat in the sun
And come undone
Pleasantly caving in
I come undone

I realize you're mine
Indeed a fool am I
I realize you're mine
Indeed a fool am I

Heaven smiles above me
What a gift here below
But no one knows
Gift that you give to me
No one knows

Heart beats fast
Colours and promises
How to be brave ?
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall ?
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt
Suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window
I saw the flickering shadow of love on her blind
She was my woman
As she deceived me I watched and went out of my mind

My, my, my Delilah
Why, why, why Delilah
I could see, that girl was no good for me
But I was lost like a slave that no man could free

At break of day when that man drove away I was waiting
I crossed the street to her house and she opened the door
She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more

My, my, my Delilah
Why, why, why Delilah
So before they come to break down the door
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take anymore

She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more

My, my, my Delilah
Why, why, why Delilah
So before they come to break down the door
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take anymore
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn't take anymore

You wouldn't believe where I've been
The city and towns I been in
From Boston to Denver
And every town in between

The people they all look the same
Only the names have been changed
But now that I'm home again
I'll tell you what I believe

It's a miracle
A true blue spectacle
A miracle come true
We're together ,baby-I was goin' crazy
'till the miracle
Came through
Now you here,and my arms are around you
And baby, there'll be
Dancin in the streets
For the miracle
A true blue spectacle
The miracle is you

I never knew you look so good
I never knew any one could
I must have been crazy
To ever had gone away

I almost for got what it's like
Holdin' you near me at night
But now that I'm home again
You know that I'm home to stay

Cause' its a miracle
A true blue spectacle
A miracle come true
We're together baby-I was goin crazy
'till the miracle came through
Now you here and I'm feelin so good
And baby there'll be
Dancin in the streets
For the miracle
A true blue spectacle
The miracle is you

Now you here and my arm's are around you
And baby the'll be dancing in the street
There's going to be dancing in the street
Dancing in the street

Dancin, dancin, dancin, dancin
Dancin in the street
Dancin, dancin, dancin in the street
For the miracle
A true blue spectacle
The miracle is you
Hey the miracle is you
The miracle is you

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the colour of the evening sun
Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay

 

Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

 

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are

 

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are how fragile we are
How fragile we are how fragile we are

Oh, it came out of the sky, landed just a little South of Moline.
Jody fell out of his tractor, couldn't b'lieve what he seen.
Laid on the ground and shook fearin' for his life.
Then he ran all the way to town screamin' it came out of the sky.

 

Well, a crowd gathered round and a scientish said it was marsh gas.
Spiro came and made a speed about raising the Mars tax.
The Vatican said, woe, the Lord has come, Hollywood rushed out an epic film
And Ronnie the Popular said it was a communist plot.

 

Oh, the newspapers came and made Jody a national hero.
Walter and Eric said they'd put him on a network tv show.
The White House said, put the thing in the Blue Room, the Vatican said,
No, it belongs to Rome
And Jody said, it's mine and you can have it for seventeen million.

 

Oh, it came out of the sky, landed just a little South of Moline.
Jody fell out of his tractor, couldn't b'lieve what he seen.
Laid on the ground a shakin', fearin' for his life.
Oh, then he ran all the way to town screamin' it came out of the sky.

Leah
It's been a long, long time
You're such a sight
You're looking better than a body has a right to
Don't you know we're playing with the fire
But we can stop this burning desire
Leah
 
Ah! Leah!
Here we go again
Ah! Leah!
Is it ever gonna end?
Ah! Leah!
Here we go again
Ah! Leah!
 
I see your lips
And I wonder who's been kissing them
I never knew how badly I was missing them
We both know we're never going to make it
But when we touch
We never have to fake it
Leah
 
Ah! Leah!
Here we go again
Ah! Leah!
Is it ever gonna end?
Ah! Leah!
Here we go again
Ah! Leah!
We ain't learned our lesson yet
 
Baby, it's no good
We're just asking for trouble
I can touch you
But I don't know how to love you
 
It ain't no use
We're headed for disaster
Our minds said no
But our hearts were talking faster
Leah
 
Ah! Leah!
Here we go again
Ah! Leah!
Here we go again
Ah! Leah!
Leah, Leah, Leah
Ah! Leah!
Here we go again
 
Ah! Leah!
Leah
We're never, ever, ever gonna make it, yeah
Ah! Leah!
Here we go again
Ah! Leah!
We're never gonna make it
Ah! Leah!

There's no more little secrets we haven't yet disclosed
We bore the living daylights of anyone too close
And all our cards at Christmas are written to us both
Count them up who's got the most?

Said we'd be close
Said we'd work perfectly
Said that we'd toast
Beautiful company

Closer than a sister to her baby brother
Closer than a cat to the child that she'll smother
It's too close for a lover
It's too close for a lover
We are each other
We are each other

We've been through all positions and this one's definitely best
You move Middle East and I'll move Wild West
What happened to our friendship we could easily have guessed
Add it up we're self-possessed

Said we'd be true
Said we'd be so so proud
Just me an you
We'd shout it out aloud

Closer than a sister to her baby brother
Closer than a cat to the child that she'll smother
It's too close for a lover
It's too close for a lover
We are each other
We are each other

Remember we went shopping and we went by piggyback
I shaved all my legs and you grew hairs upon your back
Well no-one's ever been since to this lover's shack
It's a cul-de-sac

Said we'd be close
Said we'd work perfectly
Said that we'd toast
Beautiful company

Said we'd be true
Said we'd be so so proud
Just me an you
We'd shout it out aloud

Closer than a sister to her baby brother
Closer than a secret agent working under cover
It's too close for a lover
It's too close for a lover
We are each other
We are each other

Weeping widow, don't you cry
Dressed in black, I don't know why
All the time that you've been waiting
You should feel like celebrating
 
He'll make you free as a bird in the sky
Free as a bird in the sky
Look out stranger, here comes danger
Don't let it look you in the eye, boy
You better take care, you know you've got to beware
Don't let it look you in the eye, boy, weeping widow
 
Weeping widow, spend your leisure
In you castle full of pleasure
When his spirit comes to haunt you
In your chamber, he will taunt you
 
He'll make you free as a bird in the sky
Free as a bird in the sky
Look out stranger, here comes danger
Don't let it look you in the eye, boy
You better take care, you know you've got to beware
Don't let it look you in the eye, boy, weeping widow
 
Weeping widow, don't you cry
Dressed in black, I don't know why
All the time that you've been waiting
You should feel like celebrating
 
Weeping widow, you gotta run
Weeping widow, you better see what's in store
Weeping widow, you better run

In a town near Albuquerque
Lived a most concerned young boy
He said lately I have noticed
Folks don't live with peace and joy

With frowns and worry on their faces
They're lost and don't know where to go
He said I'll get the people straightened
By putting on a puppet show

The young New Mexican puppeteer
He saw the people all lived in fear
He thought that maybe they'd listen to
A puppet telling them what to do

You know he got some string and he got some wood
He did some carving and he was good
And folks came running so they could hear
The young New Mexican puppeteer

First he carved out young Abe Lincoln
Abe will teach 'em civil rights
Then a King named Martin Luther
So they'd recall his peaceful fight

Old Mark Twain, his wit and wisdom
Will surely show them life is fun
But he smiled with satisfaction
When the Prince of Peace was done

The young New Mexican puppeteer
He saw the people all lived in fear
He thought that maybe they'd listen to
A puppet telling them what to do

You know he got some string and he got some wood
He did some carving and he was good
And folks came running so they could hear
The young New Mexican puppeteer

Now his puppet shows were clever
And he made the people laugh
When he got across the message
To walk along life's open path

They built him his own puppet theatre
Decked out with spotlights yellow and red
And then they wrote him up in all the papers
And this is what the story said

It said...

The young New Mexican puppeteer
He saw the people all lived in fear
He thought that maybe they would listen to
A puppet telling them what to do

You know he got some string and he got some wood
He did some carving and he was good
And folks came running so they could hear
The young New Mexican puppeteer

 

The young New Mexican puppeteer
He saw the people all lived in fear
He thought that maybe they would listen to
A puppet telling them what to do

You know he got some string and he got some wood
He did some carving and he was good
And folks came running so they could hear
The young New Mexican puppeteer

Scorpions sting
I hear the mission bells ring
Another night of runnin'

Is another day I don't dance the hangman's swing

 

All roads lead back to Tucson
Pray, Maria I don't find the noose on
La Policia's askin' questions
Say you don't know nothin'

And you ain't seen a thing

 

Ave Maria!
I pray,
Ave Maria!
I pray!

 

They say the blood is on my hands
‘Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

 

Blue eyes

White lies
Straight teeth and a crooked soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
¡Americano!

 

Maria these things I do
Every night they cut me in two
It's in my blood to live for the kill
But God only knows that I want to stay and love you

 

Full moon is on the rise
Patron saint of love and lies
The payoffs and the alibis
Shotgun shells and four-wheel drives

 

Ave Maria!
I pray,
Ave Maria!
I pray!

 

They gonna find me guilty as a trigger man
‘Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

 

Blue eyes
White lies
Straight teeth and a crooked soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
¡Americano!

 

I can burn like a wildfire
Disappear like a ghost
A dagger in my cloak
I'm a rich and gracious host

 

Don't fear my ill repute
The sweetest fruit is stolen fruit
And if you're feelin' dirty, cruel or mean
Let a little more money make your conscience clean

 

Ave Maria!
I pray,
Ave Maria!
I pray!

 

They say the blood is on my hands
‘Cause I put down the money and I made up the plan

 

Blue eyes

White lies

Straight teeth and a ravenous soul
Let the red blood and the green dinero flow
¡Americano!

Here's that feeling once again
Across the room you turn and then
Smile - I've known that smile before
Yes we've been friends for sure
Dreams and memories so clear
Share the love that we once had
Let the music carry on
Keep on dancing

 

Summer nights - here on that shoreline
Meet again - and drink that wine
Days gone by - still thinking of you
Missing all the things you do

Here in the falling rain


Once again we play love's game
Keep on dancing

 

You cast that magic
Déjà-vu - it's in your stars
They reveal - you know the answer
They are true - so for a while

Let's renew all those lovers' ties
Summer lightning in your eyes
It keeps on dancing

 

I've always known love
Would return to lighten the darkest day
We will meet again
Further on in later lifetime
Past the skyline, I'll always be your friend
Send my love to you
There'll be no sad goodbyes

Love is in the air, everywhere I look around
Love is in the air, every sight and every sound
And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But is something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes

Love is in the air, in the whisper of the trees
Love is in the air, in the thunder of the sea
And I don't know if I'm just dreaming
Don't know if I feel sane
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when you call out my name

Love is in the air, love is in the air

Love is in the air, in the rising of the sun
Love is in the air, when the day is nearly done
And I don't know if you're illusion
Don't know if see it true
But you're something that I must believe in
And you're there when I reach out for you

Love is in the air, everywhere I look around
Love is in the air, every sight and every sound
And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes

Love is in the air, love is in the air
Love is in the air, love is in the air

The sun through the blinds awake my mind
In bed with someone I do not know
The walls of the room are strange
I don't recall my name
Seems like the night's been very long

 

Where are all the friends I used to know?
And all who came to see my show
The coldness of the winter is here
I'm frozen into fear
But this is all and all my fault
And what a cool man I am...

 

Thought I was flying like a dove
In thunder roaring sound
To raise my name high above
But never left the ground

 

I spread my wings like a dove
For you to come around
And I've been blessed by your love
Then I've let you down

 

I'm falling...

 

Now snow flakes fall to the ground
Gently falling down
The white wind came with no sound
To fade my platinum crown

 

I was the king of the crowd
The only one around
I've searched for years to be found
Now you let me down


I'm falling...

Two of hearts, lace and satin, something in the air
Feel like another crook
That's been captured by your stare
 
Uh-oh, uh-oh (falling in love, falling in love again)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (and I don't want it, no, no, no)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (falling in love, falling in love again
Uh-oh, uh-oh (falling, falling)
 
Jealous feelings reappearing
Such a wicked day
I'm just so damn confused
And I wonder, do you care?
 
Uh-oh, uh-oh (falling in love, falling in love again)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (and I don't want it, no, no, no)
Uh-oh, uh-oh (falling in love, falling in love again
Uh-oh, uh-oh (falling, falling)
 
Like walking in the park or dancing in the dark
Just wanna hold you through out the night
Prince of fire, smooth desire, with your devil may care
Release me from your spell, I don't want this, love ain't fair
 
I'm fallin' in love again
 
Uh-Oh, uh-oh (falling in love)
Uh-Oh, uh-oh (falling, falling)
Uh-Oh, uh-oh (falling in love, falling in love again)
Uh-Oh, uh-oh (falling in love, falling in love again)
Uh-Oh, uh-oh (falling in love, falling in love again)
Uh-Oh, uh-oh (and I don't want it, no, no, no)

I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
And the touch of a world that is older
Turn the switch and check the number
Leave it on when in bed I slumber
I hear the rhythms of the music
I buy the product and never use it
I hear the talking of the DJ
Can't understand just what does he say ?

I'm on a Mexican radio
I'm on a Mexican radio

I dial it in and tune the station
They talk about the U.S. inflation
I understand just a little
No comprende--it's a riddle

I'm on a Mexican radio
I'm on a Mexican radio

I wish I was in Tijuana
Eating barbequed iguana
I'd take requests on the telephone
I'm on a wavelength far from home
I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
I dial it in from south of the border
I hear the talking of the DJ
Can't understand just what does he say ?

Radio radio...

Time flies when you're having fun
I heard somebody say
But if all I've been is fun then baby let me go
Don't wanna be in your way
 
And I don't wanna be your second choice
Don't wanna be just your friend
You keep telling me that you're not in love
You wanna throw it all away
 
But I can't stay away from you
I don't wanna let you go
And though it's killing me, that's true
There's just some things I can't control
 
Your love is slipping through my hands
And though I've heard it all before
I know you're telling me the truth
I know it's just no use
But I can't stay away from you
 
Hold on to every bit of hope that's all I ever do
Hoping you might change
Your mind and call me up
To say how much you need me too
 
And though you're leaving me no other choice
Than to turn and walk away
Look over your shoulder, I'll be there
You can count on me to stay
 
'Cause I can't stay away from you
I don't wanna let you go
And though it's killing me, that's true
There's just some things I can't control
 
Your love slipping through my hands
And though I've heard it all before
I know you're telling me the truth
I know it's just no use
But I can't stay away from you
 
I know you're telling me the truth
I know it's just no use
But I can't stay away from you

I know you
I know you've seen her
She's a sad tomato
She's three miles of bad road
Walking down the street
Will I never meet her ?
She's a real woman-child
Oh my kiss breath turpentine

I am smitten
I'm the real thing (I'm the real thing)
Have you seen her come around ?
My crush with eyeliner

I'm in like
I'm infatuated
It's all too much pressure
She's all that I can take
What position should I wear ?
Cop an attitude ? (You faker)
How can I convince her ? (Faker)
That I'm invented, too, yeah

I am smitten
I'm the real thing (I'm the real thing)
We all invent ourselves
And you know me

She's a sad tomato
She's three miles of bad road
She's her own invention (She's her own invention)
That gets me in the throat
What can I make myself be ?
Life is strange, yeah (Life is strange)
What can I make myself be ? (Fake her)
To make her mine ?

I am smitten
I'll do anything (I'll do anything)
A kiss breath turpentine
My crush with eyeliner

I am smitten
You know me (Yeah, you know me)
I could be your Frankenstein
My crush with eyeliner

I am smitten
I'm the real thing (I'm the real thing)
Won't you be my valentine ?
My crush with eyeliner

It was way past midnight
And she still couldn't fall asleep.
 
This night the dream was leaving
She tried so hard to keep.
 
And with the new day's dawning
She felt it drift away.
Not only for a cruise
Not only for a day
 
Too long ago, too long apart
She couldn't wait another day for
The captain of her heart.
 
As the day came up, she made a stop.
She stopped waiting another day for
The captain of her heart.

There's the problem, feathers, iron
Bargain buildings, weights and pulleys
Feathers hit the ground
Before the weight can leave the air

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And tell the sky, and tell the sky
Don't fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
Fall on me (if it's there for long)
Fall on me (it's over, it's over me)

There's the progress
We have found a way to talk around the problem
Building towered
Foresight isn't anything at all

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And bleed the sky and tell the sky
Don't fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
Fall on me (if it's there for long)
Fall on me (it's over, it's over me)
Don't fall on me
(Well I would keep it above but then it wouldn't be sky any more)
(So if I send it to you you've got to promise to keep it home)

Buy the sky and sell the sky
And lift your arms up to the sky
And ask the sky, and ask the sky
Don't fall on me (what is it up in the air for)
Fall on me (if it's there for long)
Fall on me (it's over, it's over me)

Oh, the sand keeps fallin' through the hourglass
There's no way you're gonna slow it down
You say, "We gotta treasure each moment
Who knows how long we're gonna be around?"

 

Yeah, you keep on telling me life is short
And it's hard to disagree with what you say
But if time is so precious, why you wastin' mine?
'Cause I'm always reading, always deleting
Every useless piece of garbage that you send my way

 

Every stupid hoax, all those corny jokes
Stop forwarding that crap to me
Well, I don't need tons of cringe inducing puns
Stop forwarding that crap to me
No, it isn't okay if you brighten my day
With some cut and pasted, hackneyed Hallmark poetry
And I didn't request a personality test
Stop forwarding that crap to me

 

You're sending virus-laden, bandwidth-hogging attachments
To every single person you know
You're passin' 'round a link to some dumb thing on YouTube
That everybody else already saw 3 years ago

 

And wacky, badly photoshopped billboards

Were never that amusing to me
And I just can't believe you believe those urban legends
But I have high hopes someone'll point you towards Snopes
And debunk that crazy junk you're spewing constantly

 

No, I don't want a bowl of Chicken Soup for the Soul
Stop forwarding that crap to me
Send more top ten lists and I'll slash my wrists
Stop forwarding that crap to me
Well, I'm sorry I can't accept your paranoid rant
And I don't want the Neiman-Marcus cookie recipe
Won't you kindly refrain, 'cause it's hurting my brain
Stop forwarding that crap to me

 

Like glittery hearts and unicorns and pictures of somebody's cat
Now tell me
In what alternate reality would I care about something like that?
And by the way
Your quotes from George Carlin aren't really George Carlin
Mr. Rogers never fought the Viet Cong
And Bill Gates is never gonna give me something for nothing
And I highly doubt some dead girl's gonna
Kill me if I don't pass your letter along

 

Well, now I know you're wishin' I'll sign your petition
But stop forwarding that crap to me
And I don't wanna read your series of conspiracy theories
Just stop forwarding that crap to me
And your 2 million loser friends all have my address now
'Cause you never figured out the way to BCC

 

Now, I gotta insist
Take me off of your list
Stop forwarding that crap to me

 

Just stop it now (Stop forwarding that crap to me)
Oh, no, whoa (Stop forwarding that crap to me)
I can't take it (Stop forwarding that crap to me)
Ah, please (Stop forwarding that crap to me)
You gotta stop (Stop forwarding that crap to me)
Right now (Stop forwarding that crap to me)
I'm not kidding (Stop forwarding that crap to me)
At the risk of being slightly
Repetitious gonna ask you now to stop (Stop)
Sending me that (Crap)
I don't want it
Don't send it to me
Don't send it to me
Just stop (Stop forwarding that crap to me)
Oh, stop forwarding that crap to me
To me

Packaged like a rebel or a hero
Target mass appeal
To make an audience feel
He really means it

 

Package the illusion of persona
Careful to conceal
The fact that she's only too real
She's got to screen it

 

Hit you in a soft place
A melody so sweet
A strong and simple beat
That you can dance to

 

Watch his every move
Superconductor
Orchestrate illusions
Superconductor
Watch his every move
Superconductor
Hoping you'll believe
Designing to deceive, that's entertainment

 

He can put a target on the market
Bask in your applause
Reality withdraws
Now he believes it

 

The role becomes the actor
She's addicted to applause
The stage a world because
She never leaves it

 

Hit you in a soft place
With sentimental ease
They know the fantasies
That you romance to

 

Watch her every move
Superconductor
She can manipulate reactions
Superconductor
Watch her every move
Superconductor
Pin the donkeys on her tail
Fantasy for sale, that's entertainment

Hold your fire
Keep it burning bright
Hold the flame
'Til the dream ignites
A spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission

 

I hear their passionate music
Read the words that touch my heart
I gaze at their feverish pictures
The secrets that set them apart


When I feel the powerful visions
Their fire has made alive
I wish I had that instinct
I wish I had that drive

 

Spirits fly on dangerous missions
Imaginations on fire
Focused high on soaring ambitions
Consumed in a single desire
In the grip of a nameless possession
A slave to the drive of obsession
A spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission

 

I watch their images flicker
Bringing light to a lifeless screen
I walk through their beautiful buildings
And I wish I had their dreams

 

But dreams don't need to have motion
To keep their spark alive
Obsession has to have action
Pride turns on the drive


It's cold comfort
To the ones without it
To know how they struggled
How they suffered about it

 

If their lives were
Exotic and strange
They would likely have
Gladly exchanged them
For something a little more plain
Maybe something a little more sane

 

We each pay a fabulous price
For our visions of paradise
But a spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission

Women think I'm tasty
But they're always tryin' to waste me
Make me burn the candle right down
Baby, baby, don't need no jewels in my crown

'Cause all you women is low down gamblers
Cheatin' like I don't know how
Baby, I go crazy, there's fever in the funk house now

This low down bitchin'
Got my poor feet a-itchin'
You know you know the deuce is still wild
Baby, I can't stay, you got to roll me
And call me the tumblin' dice

Always in a hurry, I never stop to worry
Don't see the time flashin' by
Honey, got no money
I'm all sixes and sevens and nines

Say now, baby, I'm the rank outsider
You can be my partner in crime
Baby, I can't stay
You got to roll me and call me the tumblin'
Roll me and call me the tumblin' dice

Oh, my, my, my, I'm the lone crap shooter
Playin' the field every night
Baby, can't stay
You got to roll me and call me the tumblin' (dice)
Roll me and call me the tumblin'
(Got to roll me) dice

Got to roll me. Got to roll me
Got to roll me. Got to roll me
Got to roll me. Got to roll me
Keep on rolling
Got to roll me
Keep on rolling
Got to roll me

(Oh yeah, keep on rolling)
Got to roll me (Call me the tumbling dice)
Got to roll me (Yeah)
Got to roll me (Roll me, baby [?])
Got to roll me (Ah yeah)
Got to roll me (Oh my, my, my, my)
Got to roll me
Got to roll me (Keep on tumbling down, baby, oh)
Got to roll me
Got to roll me
Got to roll me
