Dick Wagner: 6 song lyrics

You can Telex my accountant
Call up Tele-Credit, too
I know they sent a monthly statement
But I never read it through
You say you won't accept my Visa
Or American Express
And the computer is suspicious
'Cause I've got no fixed address
Lady, that's a valid document
Check out the way I'm dressed
You know the way I'm feeling now
I'd take a lie-detector test
Paradise lost for capital gain
Traded for a ticket on the gravy train
I can amortize the cost with a minimum of pain
But I need it for a write-off
Can't take another night off
You know I never carry change

I just Charge It
Where do I sign?
Charge It
Show me the dotted line
Charge It
I don't have the time to waste

Charge It
Don't mess around
Charge It I've got to get downtown
'Cause I promised to deliver
To live up to the letter of the
Lord, I'm in a state of grace

Well, I've enjoyed us doing business
But I really must confess
This pompous attitude just isn't calculated to impress
There's a driver in my car outside
Who's easily distressed
Lady, when he's through with you
He's gonna leave your face a mess
Paradise lost for capital gain
Traded for a ticket on the gravy train
I can amortize the cost with a minimum of pain
But I need it for a write-off
Can't take another night off
You know I never carry change

I just Charge It
Where do I sign?
Charge It
Show me the dotted line
Charge It
I don't have the time to waste
Charge It...

I'm a smash at cocktail parties
I keep falling on my face
I can't decide which side my heart is
I'm such a damn disgrace
Can't take me anyplace
Can't take me anyplace
Can't take me anyplace
Hide this face
Hide your face
Hide this face
Hide this face

I reinvent behaving badly
I'm extremely commonplace
Although you know I love me madly
I disturb the populace
Can't take me anyplace
Can't take me anyplace
Can't take me anyplace
Hide this face
Hide your face
Hide this face
Hide this face

I'm the subject of controversy
It's my delicious carapace
But idle gossip never bothered me
I'm the very worst of taste
Can't take me anyplace
Can't take me anyplace
Can't take me anyplace
Can't take me anyplace

I went down to the Paradise Garage
And took my place in line
The cashier said
"Are you alright?," I said "I'm feeling fine"
I'm a stranger to Nirvana
I don't box outside my weight
But when I stepped out of the taxi
I did not anticipate this feeling
"Oh, excuse me, sir
No, after you"

Baby's got a dream and she can boogie
Daddy's got a groove that's coming clean
Jemima's got a vision of a permanent position
Me, I'm oiling up my dance machine
And it goes like this
And it goes like this
And it goes like this
And it goes like this

I'm from Plainsboro, New Jersey
And I didn't bring a date
I guess, I really wasn't sure
If you'd be boogeying this late
I can't think where I put my wallet
Naive suburban fool
You wouldn't think that I'd spent hours outside
French-polishing my cool and feeling so strange

Baby's got a dream and she can boogie
Daddy's got a groove that's coming clean
Jemima's got a vision of a permanent position
Me, I'm oiling up my dance machine
And it goes like this
And it goes like this
And it goes like this
And it goes like this

I really only stepped inside to vary my routine
You see, I read about this discotheque in New York Magazine
"Hey, Baby,
What's your sign? Haven't we met before?"
I really must suggest
That we've achieved a rare rapport
Hit the ceiling

Freezing on this corner
Waiting for a ride uptown
Really getting restless
Could have walked that far by now
Now it's after midnight
I need a fast ride
I got to get to you somehow
I got to be right on time
Right on the money
Right on time
Right on the money
Right on time
I can't be one minute late

I would have called a taxi
I couldn't use the lady's phone
She would have gotten crazy
She thinks she's got me for her own
And now the stop light
Feels like a spotlight
I got to get to you right now
I got to be right on time
Right on the money
Right on time
Right on the money
Right on time
I can't be one minute late

Look at me
In waters so deep
Much too far from shore
To see the light of reason anymore
And I'm sinking slowly to the bottom
No emotions to save me
I ain't got 'em anymore

Night and day
I keep drifting farther away
Much too far from home
Where the fires of passion keep me warm
And I'm miles away from where we started
No I don't know the reason that we parted anymore

S.O.S.

I'm gonna do my best
To get a message through to you
Make contact
The way we always did before

S.O.S.

I'm gonna get no rest
'Til I come sailing home to you
Through this storm

And if my voice
Starts suddenly shaking
Don't be confused anymore
It's just the sound of my heart breaking
Ship to shore

S.O.S.

I'm giving up this restless life
My wayward friends
The bad advice they give
I'm settling down to keep you company

I'm starting over
One more time
A change of heart
I've crossed the line again
It took me all this time to see
That what we've got is
Something short of paradise
A little bit less than we might like
I know this ain't heaven
It's close enough for me
I know this ain't heaven
It's close as I'll ever be

It won't be easy
Changing style
The shape I'm in
It just might take awhile
But in the end
I know you're going to see
That what we've got is
Something short of paradise
A little bit less than we might like
I know this ain't heaven
It's close enough for me
I know this ain't heaven
It's close as I'll ever be
