Hey little one
You've got the way
I ain't doing nothin'
That's so important

I'd like to know how you deal
Oh when I worry to darken
If I can't get in your show
I'll take my tom tom and go
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

While you were mine
I got so hazy
While you passed by
I found my answer

Is this the best thing in life
The only thing I remember
If I can't get in your show
I'll take my tom tom and go

Pure love, sunshine
Our love is always fine
We are related, you know
I'll take my tom tom and go
We are related, you know
I'll take my tom tom and go
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

The sky is angry
Over this city
Birds fly like devils
Over this city

So many things of no worth
Are being shoved in my face
When all the wealth in the world
May work the faith in one girl

That's why I'm sad to say
Till there can be no hate, oh
The only one they come through
Is absolute
You
