Can you tell me ... tell me, friend ... just exactly where I've been
Is that so ... much to ask
I'll pay you back no matter what the task
You seem really sure 'bout somethin' I don't know
Take that load off looks like your chest's about to go
Your wasted words ... already been heard
Are you really God ... yes or no

Well, all day ... and half the night
You're walkin' round lookin' such a fright
Lawd, is it me ... or is it you
I'd make a wager and I'd hope to lose
Time's gone looks like Rome ... is 'bout to fall
Sure gonna fall
Next time take the elevator please don't crawl
Nooo
Your wasted words ... so absurd
Are you really Satan ... yes or no
Tell me now, please
Whoo-hooo

Well, I ain't no saint ... and you sure as hell ain't no savior
Every other Christmas I would practice good behavior
That was then ... this is now
Don't ask me to be Mister Clean ...'cause baby, I don't know how
Ring my phone 'bout ten more times we will see
Find that broke down line ... and let it be
Your wasted words ... will never be heard
Go on home, baby ... and watch it ... on TV
Weekday ... soap box speciality
You know what I'm talkin' 'bout now
By the way this song's for you ... sincerely, me
Yeahhh
