When I'm getting home to you
I gotta show you what I can do
But everything connects
And that ain't nowhere

Well, but maybe they're just giving you all you've ever wanted
And maybe you never ever know what that was
And maybe you're just finding it out now
With a vietnamese baby on your mind

Technology satellite, well
What's wrong today and why was
Everyone so busy they've forgotten
Why they're playing that he said

What's wrong today is what's wrong with you
You're so solid, busy solid, that's all you do
With a vietnamese baby on your mind
Your pretty little mind

Match me a slingshot
With every light bulb you got and
I'll show you more busted glass
Than any girl every seen

Since I been blasted, I've been blown,
I've been backing away
You got to back it away
You've got such a fabulous, yeah

But I've got a concert out to play
With a vietnamese baby on your mind
Your pretty little mind
Your pretty little mind

When I'm getting home to you
I've got to show you what I can do
But everything connects
And that ain't nowhere

No no no, baby no nowhere
It just won't do, no no

I'm talking about your overture
Talking 'bout your overture
Got to shout about your overture
Now that it's over, now that it's over
Now that it's over, what ya gonna do?
