R.E.M.

R.E.M. was an American rock band from Athens, Georgia, formed in 1980 by singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry.

You don't have to take the bar exam to see
What you've done is ignoramus 103
What've I got to hang my hat on?
You don't have a pot to pee in
All this just to be your friend
I was there until the end
Extortion and arson, petty larceny

I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you hung up my line
Star 69

I know all about the warehouse fire
I know squirrels didn't chew the wires
Three people have my number
The other two were with me
I don't like to tell-tell but I'm not your patsy
This time you have gone too far with me

I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you hung up my line
Star 69

Why'd you put your quarter down on me?
This reads like some dork inside edition hard copy
I can't be your character witness
I can't be your alibi
Doorbell rings it's the FBI
We learned Spy vs. Spy
You, my friend, are guilty as can be

I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you hung up my line

I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I know you called
I can't be your alibi
