She Don't Want Nobody Near

She dont want nobody near
But you can't get away from that
They appear and disappear
And they all have got strings attached

Pretty soon they got you hanging on the line
Pretty soon theyre singin
One by one the same old rhyme
They say, "I'm all right, I just cant get home tonight"

She don't want nobody home
Cause it's a little too crowded there
She don't want to be alone
So they just keep pourin in

Pretty soon they got her headed for the door
She comes home to find
Theyre not hangin round no more
She says, "I'm all right, you just cant get home tonight"

Dont you wonder
What she looks like in the light?
She says Im all right, I just cant get home tonight

Pretty whitewashed lies, endless alibis
And reasons that need cleanin every night
Half a world away, you can't wash away
The stain of her deceivin
And the things that you could not believe in

Well, she don't want no one around
Cause she don't want anybody to see
What she looks like when she's down
Cause thats a really sad place to be

Pretty soon she gets them crawling up the walls
Then she wonders why
They beg her please, then never call
She says, "I'm okay, it's all right, hey, look whos on TV tonight
She says, "I'm all right, I just can't get home tonight"

Dont you wonder
Why its dark outside at night?
She says Im all right, I just cant get home tonight
She says Im all right, I just cant get home tonight
