The Innocence Mission

The Innocence Mission (stylized as the innocence mission on all releases since 1995) is an American alternative rock band centered on husband-and-wife singer-songwriters Karen and Don Peris. The original group, including Mike Bitts (bass guitar) and Steve Brown (drums), was formed in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the early 1980s when the members met during a Catholic school production of Godspell. Although all members of the band have contributed musically, Karen Peris is its principal writer. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Long distance information 
Give me Memphis Tennessee. 
Try to find the party 
Trying to get in touch with me. 
She would not leave her number 
But I know who placed the call. 
'Cause my uncle took the message 
And he wrote it on the wall. 

Help me, information, 
Get in touch with my Marie. 
She's the only one who'd phone me here 
From Memphis Tennessee. 
Her home is on the south side 
Just beyond the ridge, 
Just a half a mile 
From the Mississippi Bridge. 

Help me, information, 
More than that I cannot add. 
Only that I miss her 
And all the fun we had. 
We were pulled apart 
Because her mom would not agree. 
Help me get in touch with her 
In Memphis Tennessee. 

The last time I saw Marie 
She was waving me goodbye, 
With hurry homedrops on her cheek 
That trickled from her eyes. 
Marie is only six years old, 
Information please. 
Help me get in touch with her 
In Memphis Tennessee.
