C - Em - D*



In this town, television shuts off at two
What can a lonely rock 'n' roller do?
Oh, the beds are big and the sheets are clean
Your girlfriend said you were 19
There's Styrofoam ice buckets full of ice
Come up to my motel room and treat me nice

I don't wanna make no late night, New York calls
I don't wanna stare at them ugly grass-mat walls
Chronologically I know you're young
But when you kissed me in the club, you bit my tongue
I'll write you a song and put it on my next LP
Come up to my motel room and sleep with me

There's a Bible in the drawer
Don't be afraid
I'll put up a sign to warn the clean up maid
Oh, there's lots of soap and there's lots of towels
Never mind those desk clerk scowls
I'll buy you breakfast
They'll think you're my wife
Come up to my motel room and save my life
