“Tonight” Lyrics

“{Go after it!}”

You get the moon, ah
I’ll get the stars
You get the wind, and uh
I’ll get the cars
You make the stops
I’ll make the starts
Tonight

You get the gum, ah
I’ll get the Pez
Lucille Ball, ah
Desi Arnaz
I got the soap, hah
You get the toy
I got the girls
You get the boys
I’ll make the light and
You make the noise
Tonight

Living inside of a little glass room
Living inside of the tube
Well, everybody’s made out of little thin line
And sometimes, their fingers are blue
Their minds are too, ah

You get the cops
I’ll get the phone
You get the nurse
And I’ll go on home
Sally loves Bob
Jim needs a shave
Why did you come
If you just stand there and rave?
Tonight

You get the tape
I’ll get the rule
You watch the steaks
And I’ll fill the pool
You watch the lawn
I’ll watch the door
You watch a little
And I’ll watch some more
Tonight

Living inside of a little glass room
Living inside of the tube
Everybody’s made out of little thin lines
And so are me, and so are you, and so are me and you

[break]

I’m inside of the tube
I’m just stuck inside of a tube
I wish I could get out and come over there with you
But we’re all stuck inside of the tube
Ah, I’m blue

(Doo doo doo, doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo, doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo, doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo, doo doo doo)

(Doo doo doo, doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo, doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo, doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo, doo doo doo)

Mike: That’s from Elephant Parts. Ha ha ha ha ha. Ah, thanks. Yeah, ha.
