Tongue Lyrics

by REM

Call my name, here I come
Ninety to nothing, watch me run
You call, I am ashamed to say

Ugly girls know their fate, anybody can get laid
You want a room with a fire escape
I want to tell you how much I hate this
Don't leave that stuff all over me
It pains me, please just leave it

I should toss that vanity license plate
Toss that make-up painted face
Box those poems, chocolate cake
Scratch that name on the record player
Please, just leave me be

Don't lay that stuff all over me
It crawls all over, all over me

Call my name, here I come
Your last ditch lay, will I never learn?
Caramel turn on a dusty apology
It crawls all over me, you turn all over
It pains me, please just leave it
