Blondie is an American rock band, founded by singer Deborah Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. The band was a pioneer in the early American New Wave and punk scenes of the mid-1970s. Their first two albums contained strong elements of these genres, and although successful in the United Kingdom and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an underground band in the United States until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. Over the next three years, the band achieved several hit singles including "Call Me", "Atomic" and "Heart of Glass" and became noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles incorporating elements of disco,pop,rap, and reggae, while retaining a basic style as a New Wave band. more »

I used to get sick with solitude
I was always better in the multitude
But now I like it up here all alone in my ivory tower
Hi-ho at the end of my rope

I watch it all through a telescope
I think I'd have a better chance to see the pope
I get so bored with his shtick and his mini-minute dick
And all his high and mighty shit, I'm a witch

Well, well, well a wish want to throw it in a ditch
I'm concentrating on the big laugh
You just acting like that damn old Riff-Raff
Shakedown baby

I don't want to have to see
What you got hiding in your body cavity
I'm so sick of your Jersey rap
Your slab rat white as a tic-tac

Why don't you take a dirt nap
You make me laugh and I know who I'm laughing at
Big Jersey hoo-haa
Like your style, like your freedom of speech

Like your dirty thoughts, like your Cream of Wheat
Tuesday is out
Never may be great, level down and read 'em
From the Garden State, this is a Jersey plate

Saturdayin' pretty driving in the city
Your boom is a distortion
Your act is a contortion
The perfume and pretension

Your hair in invention
Ha,Ha,Ha the hive is humming
I thought I heard it all
But there's still more coming

Put it in, put it in, put it in, why don't you put it in
You said your name was what
What kind of a name is that
Shooting past me on the turnpike

Should have told you to take a hike
But there was something
I don't know what
That I guess I kind of like, that nasty attitude

Mediterranean lastitude
I guess you did give me a rush
Yeah you gave me a thrill
Felt so hot and flushed

I even had to take a pill
And your pattern yeah your method yeah
The way you deliver long and slow
The way you get your percussion going

Going strong, and it's my turn to be blowing
Yeah singing my song
You think you know me
Think again

Who's your friend
Who put this freak flag in the mail
Why you sending me this pig tail
You back in Jail

I got your post card saying
How it is in that pen your in
Signed don't forget me, lot's of love from adrenaline
Give it a rest, give it a rest

You got one dimension pure pretension
Cross the river start to shiver
Over to the big smoke, and it's no joke
I told you one more word from you

About Jersey and your dead
Let me lick that uh uh
Can I kiss that, no
Let me kiss that

Let me lick that come on
Let me lick that
Uh huh it might be too sweet
It won't be too sweet
