    Tell Me Baby

They come from every state to find 
Some dreams were meant to be declined 
Tell the man what did you have in mind 
What have you come to do? 

No turning water into wine 
No running while you're in the line 
I'll take you to the purple sign 
You see these lights are blue 

Come'n get it, lost within the city limits 
Say goodbye, cause they will find a way to trim it 
Everybody lookin' for a silly gimmick 
Gotta get away, can't take it for another minute 

This town is meant to mend things 
Just look at what the cover reads, 
So high, it's only promising 
This place was made on you 

Tell me baby, whats your story? 
Where you come from, and where you wanna go this time? 
Oh, tell me lover, are you lonely? 
The thing we need is never all that hard to find 

Oh, tell me baby, whats your story? 
Where do you come from, and where you wanna go this time? 
Oh, you're so lovely, are you lonely? 
Or giving up on the innocence you left behind 

Some claim to have the fortitude 
To shoot to blow the interlude 
Sustaining pain to set the mood 
Step out to be renewed 

I move you like a barritone 
Jungle brothers on the microphone 
Gettin' over with an undertone 
It's time to turn to stone 

Chili, chili, baby, when your nose is in the nitty-gritty 
Life could be a little sweet 
But life could be a little shitty 
What a pitty, Boston down to Kansas City 
Lookin' for a hundred 
But you only ever found a penny 

Three fingers in the honeycomb 
You ring just like a xylophone 
Devoted to the chromosome 
The day that you left home 

Tell me baby, whats your story? 
Where you come from, and where you wanna go this time? 
Oh, tell me lover, are you lonely? 
The thing we need is never all that hard to find 

Oh, tell me baby, whats your story? 
Where you come from, and where you wanna go this time? 
Oh, you're so lovely, are you lonely? 
Or giving up on the innocence you left behind, yeah 

Tell me baby, whats your story? 
Where you come from, and where you wanna go this time? 
Oh, tell me lover, are you lonely? 
The thing we need is never all that hard to find 

Oh, tell me baby, whats your story? 
Where you come from, and where you wanna go this time? 
Oh, you're so lovely, are you lonely? 
Or giving up on the innocence you left behind
