It's how the hustles goes
See what the jukebox knows
Put my last quarter on
I play 'Authority song'

Honesty or mystery?
Tell me I'm not scared anymore
I've got no secret purpose

I don't seem obvious
Do I, I, I?
(Do I, I, I?)
I don't seem obvious
Do I, I, I?
(Do I, I, I?)
I don't seem obvious do

The DJ never has it
JMC automatic
(Do I, I, I?)

If those were Roy's headphones
You bet he plays 'What goes on'
(Do I, I, I?)

Honesty or mystery?
Tell me I'm not scared anymore
(I, I, I)
I got no secret purpose

I don't seem obvious
Do I, I, I?
(Do I, I, I?)
I don't seem obvious
Do I, I, I?
(Do I, I, I?)

I don't seem obvious, do I?
Do I, I, I?

Well, I'm here that means something doesn't it?
Won't you dance with me a little bit?
You don't notice 'cause the music's too loud

It's how the hustles goes
See what the jukebox knows
(Do I, I, I?)
(Do I, I, I?)
Put my last quarter on
I play 'Authority song'
(Do I, I, I?)

Honesty or mystery?
Tell me I'm not scared anymore
(I, I, I)
Say anything you want, I'm ready
I'm not scared anymore
(I, I, I)

Honesty or mystery?
Wan't something else just tell me
I'm not scared anymore
(I, I, I)
I got no secret purpose

I don't seem obvious
Do I, I, I?
I don't seem obvious
Do I, I, I?
