She calls on the phone
She says she doesn't want to be alone
She says it's making her neurotic
But please don't mistake it for being erotic

So alone, so all alone

She says let's go for a walk
We'll have a drink and maybe we will talk
And he thinks she has possibilities
If she could just put away her rosary

So alone, nobody wants to be alone

But I just didn't know
I swear to you, I just didn't know
I would never make you sad
If I had known I never would have
Said those things to you
You have to be crazy to say those things to you

Let's face it I made a mistake
Well you know, fools rush in where angels take a break
I can't be smart all of the time
And anyway I didn't know you were making time over him

To tell you the truth, I forget all about him

And you know, I don't think it's nice
Asking one man about another man's vice
I don't care if you pick my head
As long as we end up in bed

Alone, just the two of us alone

I just didn't know
I swear to god, I just didn't know
Can't you understand that it's frightening
When you hear women talking about castrating and hating men
Who wants to know about how you hate men

Well, you said now you wanted to dance
So now we're going to dance
You said that you weren't complete
But we're going to put you on your feet
You said that you were very vexed
You told me to forget about sex
You said you liked me for my mind
Well, I really love your behind

Oh, get up and boogie, oh baby, get up and dance
Oh, get, get, get, get up and boogie, baby, oh, get up and dance
Shake your booty, mama, oh, get up and dance

Your points very clear
You're not one to cry into your beer
Why don't we go to my place
Believe me, I'm very chaste

And I'm so alone, so all alone

Sure all men are beasts
Hey, look, I'll sit here quietly and I'll stare at my feet
I don't blame you for taking umbrage
With animals staring at your cleavage

So alone, we're so all alone

Hey, do you mind if I turn out the light
Don't take offense, but why don't you spend the night
I know your passions run very deep
But at this point we both need sleep

So alone, and who wants to be alone

Reed, Lou / Fonfara, Michael H
