Lalalalalala

Saw you walking down the street  Holding hands with some other guy
 Wearing a sharkskin suit, black patent leather boots
& big brown flying saucer eyes
I didn't talk to you then
You were kissing your friend  Besides it was the wrong time & place 
I went home & took a shower 
Read"Our Lady Of The Flowers" by Jane Genet 
I knew we'd meet again 
Don't want your diamonds 
Don't want your gold
I want your love
I want your soul
Come on baby, let's have a good time

 Lalalalalalalala  Sweet Rock'n'Roll

I searched all over town
 Quizzed the dudes hanging around,
No one had ever seen a chick like you before 
I hit strip joints & museums 
Bars and Clubs & Jesus 
I even prayed in a cathedral for your soul
Then one rainy winter Tuesday 
I saw you on the subway 
You were headed for the tunnel 
Me the door
I pressed my face against the glass 
You sped by me in a flash 
Like a motorcycle crash
You smoked my skull 

Don't want your diamonds 
Don't want your gold
I want your love
I want your soul
Come on baby, let's have a good time

 Lalalalalalalala  Sweet Rock'n'Roll

Here she comes now

So there I was walking in the pouring rain
Wonderin' who & why & where & what you were
I had hallucinatory dreams
 Shivers sweats & screams 
Like an opiate withdrawal only worse 
Then one long hot summer night
I took a motorcycle ride
Saw you looking mean & evil
 Voodoo rockabilly queen 
'bout to kickstart your machine 
Like a fighter pilot flying off to war
You had a tight black leather jacket
 Skull & crossbones on the back
God bless your soul of sweet Gene Vincent  There you were

Don't want your diamonds 
Don't want your gold
I want your love
I want your soul
Come on baby, let's have a good time

 Lalalalalalalala  Sweet Rock'n'Roll
