Fast Drum Machine Demo

My old man’s coming ‘cross town to get me
He’s been gone for five years, oh…
And expects me to be
To be waiting
To be waiting
And my husband coming ‘cross town to get me
She’s been gone
Five years or so, and
Expects me to be waiting
All I have is a
Many…stained shell
Oh god….

Coming ‘cross town to get me

Free

So sad

With the tear, so sad
Count on…me
(Call you up)
(Goodbye baby boy)
I could call you up

I could call you up

In the middle of the night…
Wouldn’t matter at all…
Ask you to come back
(Phone rings)
