Star 69 Lyrics

by REM

You don't have to take the bar exam to see
What you've done is ignoramus 103
What've I got to hang my hat on you don't have a pot to pee in
All this just to be your friend I was there until the end
Extortion and arson, petty larceny

I know you called, I know you called, I know you called
I know you called, I know you called, I know you hung up my line
Star 69

I know all about the warehouse fire
I know squirrels didn't chew the wires
3 people have my number the other 2 were with me
I don't like to tell-tell but I'm not your patsy
This time you have gone too far with me

I know you called, I know you called, I know you called
I know you called, I know you called, I know you hung up my line
Star 69

Why'd you put your quarter down on me?
This reads like some dork inside edition hard copy
I can't be your character witness I can't be your alibi
Doorbell rings it's the FBI, we learned spy vs spy
You my friend, are guilty as can be

I know you called, I know you called, I know you called
I know you called, I know you called, I know you hung up my line

I know you called, I know you called, I know you called
I know you called, I know you called, I can't be your alibi
Star 69
