Splendid Isolation Lyrics

by Warren Zevon

I wanna live alone in the desert
I wanna be like Georgia O'Keefe
I wanna live on the Upper East Side
And never go down into the street

Splendid isolation, I don't need no one
Splendid isolation

Michael Jackson in Disneyland
Don't have to share it with nobody else
Lock the gates, Goofy, take my hand
And lead me through the world of self

Splendid isolation, I don't need no one
Splendid isolation

Don't wanna wake up with no one beside me
Don't wanna take up with nobody new
Don't want nobody coming by without calling first
Don't want nothing to do with you, you

I'm putting tinfoil up on the windows
Lying down in the dark to dream
I don't want to see their faces
I don't want to hear them scream

Splendid isolation, I don't need no one
Splendid isolation

Splendid isolation, I don't need no one
Splendid isolation
