I am just a lousy bum
Searching for the unknown crumb
The crumb the crumb
Something or someone to come

Come along illuminate my lust
Confucius might have been confused
And Buddha might have blown a fuse
I ooze the muse

Meet me at the coffee shop
We can dance like Iggy Pop
Another go in the parking lot
Frewak the cheek on your hot spot

Back and forth my body's jerking
Will to thrill will not stop working
Work and work
I'll take you on a honeymoon
Jumping on a bed in a hotel room
The room the groom

Meet me at the coffee shop
We can dance
Like Iggy Pop
Another go in the parking lot
Frewak the cheek on your hot spot
