Testo the sidewinder sleeps tonite - r.e.m

This here is the place I will be staying.

There isn't a number. You can call the pay phone.

Let it ring a long
long
long
long time.

If I don't pick up
hang up
call back
let it ring some more.

If I don't pick up
pick up... The sidewinder sleeps
sleeps
sleeps in a coil



Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.

Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.

Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.



There are scratches all around the coin slot

Like a heartbeat
baby trying to wake up


But this machine can only swallow money.

You can't lay a patch by computer design.

It's just a lot of stupid
stupid signs.



Tell her


Tell her she can kiss my ass
then laugh and say that you were only kidding.

That way she'll know that it's really
really
really
really me.



Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.

Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.

Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.



Baby
instant soup doesn't really grab me.

Today I need something more sub-sub-sub-substantial.

A can of beans or blackeyed peas
some Nescafe and ice


A candy bar
a falling star
or a reading of Doctor Seuss;



Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.

Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.

Call me when you try to wake her up. Call me when you try to wake her.



The cat in the hat came back
wrecked a lot of havoc on the way


Always had a smile and a reason to pretend.

But their world has flat backgrounds and little need to sleep but to dream.
