Babs and Babs lay dreaming in a four poster bed
Arm in arm, head to head, Babs and Babs
Babs said, "Whatcha thinking?"
She said, "Nothing
But I never do 'cause I leave it up to you"
Babs looked out the window
Saw the moon and the sky
She saw the clouds drifting by
Voices crying and sighing and dying but she said nothing

"Look out on the lawn, there's a moon out tonight
There's a moon out tonight, can'tcha see?"
"Silver dreams don't move me or your talk of the stars
And this isn't the time or place to make a fool of me.
No one wants to hear you when you're slipping away
And the light of your day always shows up the strength of your vision."
But she said nothing.

So Babs said "Don't you worry, I'll take good care of you
You're lack of feeling's a rotten thing
But I'll show you what to do.
Girl, you've got to get away
Girl, you've got to feel, oh, yeah."
Babs said "Don't you patronize me, I'm fine the way I am
At least I know what's happening
And I know just where I stand.
You live alone you die alone
When your dreams all fade away, oh, yeah."

Never compromising, never see eye to eye
So they turn, with a sigh, Babs and Babs
Have to be together like the night and the day
So they might as well stay the best of friends.
Locked in love we leave them with the moon in the sky
With the clouds drifting by
Voices crying and sighing and dying and we say nothing
She said nothing
