I got an airplane ticket
And my shirt is stickin' out of my jeans
You got me painted in the corner
Where I'm livin' way beyond my means

Outside my window, a bird once flew
Now I don't even care
What kind of gum I chew
And oh, baby, I just wanna be with you

Well, I don't wanna wash the dishes
But I'm wishin' I could wash my hair
You been on my mind so long
You must livin' up there

Well, it's up to the circus and down to the zoo
The monkey's lookin' at me
Like I'm lookin' at you
And oh, baby, I just wanna be with you

I don't wanna go to London to visit the Queen
She don't like my English if you know what I mean
Don't wanna walk around like I got nothin' to do
Uh uh baby, wanna be with you
Uh uh baby, wanna be with you

Well, I was cleaning out my wallet
While I'm sittin' on my livin' room rug
I was lookin' at the numbers of the women
That I thought I dug

There was one that begged, one that teased
One God blessed me
Every time I sneezed
But oh baby, I just wanna be with you

I wanna be with you when there ain't no love
When the banks all close with the stars above
Lonely won't be lonesome when we get through
And uh uh, baby, wanna be with you
Uh uh baby, wanna be with you

I got an airplane ticket
And my shirt is stickin' out of my jeans
You got me painted in the corner
Where I'm livin' way beyond my means

Outside my window, a bird once flew
Now I don't even care
What kind of gum I chew
And oh, baby, I just wanna be with you

I don't wanna go to London to visit the Queen
She don't like my English if you know what I mean
Don't wanna walk around like I got nothin' to do
Uh uh baby, wanna be with you

Uh uh baby, wanna be with you
Uh uh baby, wanna be with you
Uh uh baby, wanna be with you
