It's how the hustles goes
See what the jukebox knows
Put my last quarter on
I play "Authority Song"

Honesty or mystery?
Tell me I'm not scared anymore
I got no secret purpose
I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?
Do I-I-I-I-I?
I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?
Do I-I-I-I-I?

(I don't seem obvious do)

The DJ never has it
J M see automatic
(Do I-I-I-I-I?)
If those were Roy's headphones
You bet he plays "What Goes On"
(Do I-I-I-I-I?)

Honesty or mystery?
Tell me I'm not scared anymore (I-I-I, I-I-I)
I got no secret purpose
I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?
Do I-I-I-I-I?
I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?
Do I-I-I-I-I?

I don't seem obvious, do I?
Do I-I-I?

Ah, well, I'm here
That means something doesn't it?
Uh-huh, won't you dance with me a little bit?
Ah-ah, you don't notice
I guess the music's too loud

It's how the hustles goes
See what the jukebox knows (do I-I-I-I-I)
(Do I-I-I-I-I)
Put my last quarter on
I play "Authority Song" (do I-I-I-I-I)

Honesty or mystery?
Tell me I'm not scared anymore (I-I-I, I-I-I)
Say anything you want, I'm ready
I'm not scared anymore (I-I-I, I-I-I)
Honesty or mystery?
Won't something else just tell me
I'm not scared anymore (I-I-I, I-I-I)
I got no secret purpose
I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?
I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?
I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?
I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?

I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?
I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?
I don't seem obvious
Do I-I-I-I-I?
I don't seem obvious
