In this town television shuts off at two
Oh the bed's so big and the sheets are clean
The styrofoam icebucket is full of ice
I don't wanna make no late night New York calls
Chronologically I know you're young
I'll write a song for you, I'll put it on my next L.P
There's a Bible in the drawer don't be afraid
Yeah there's lots of soap end ther's lots of towels
I buy you breakfast, they'll think you're my wife
Come up to my motelroom, save my lifeIn this town television shuts off at two
Oh the bed's so big and the sheets are clean
The styrofoam icebucket is full of ice
I don't wanna make no late night New York calls
Chronologically I know you're young
I'll write a song for you, I'll put it on my next L.P
There's a Bible in the drawer don't be afraid
Yeah there's lots of soap end ther's lots of towels
I buy you breakfast, they'll think you're my wife
Come up to my motelroom, save my life
