I Want You

Main Point ~ Feb 5, 1975

The guilty undertaker sighs
The lonesome organ grinder cries
The silver saxophone says I should refuse you
The cracked bells and washed out horns blow into my face with scorn
But it's not that way, I wasn't born to lose you
I want you, I want you, I want you so bad, Honey I want you.

The drunken politician leaps upon the streets where mothers weep
And the saviors who are fast asleep, they wait for you
And I wait for them to interrupt me drinking from my broken cup
And ask me to open up the gate for you

Now all my fathers, they've gone down
True love, they've been without it
But all their daughters put me down
'Cause I don't think about it

Well I return to the queen of spades and talk with my chamber maid
She knows that I'm not afraid to look at her
She is good to me and there's nothing she doesn't see
She knows where I'd like to be but it doesn't matter

Now your dancing child with the chinese suit, he spoke to me, I took his flute
No I wasn't very cute to him, was I
But I did it because he lied, because he took you for a ride
And because time was on his side
And because I want you, I want you, I want you so bad
Honey I want you
