"Be My Lover" as written by and Michael Bruce....
She struts into the room
Well I don't know her
But with a magnifying glance
I just sorta look her over

We have a drink or two, well maybe three
And then suddenly, she starts telling me her life story

She says

[Chorus]
Baby, if you want to, be my lover
You better take me home
Cause it's a long long way to paradise
And I'm still on my own.

Told her that I came from Detroit City
And I played guitar in a long haired rock and roll band
She asked me why the singer's name was Alice
I said 'listen baby, you really wouldn't understand'

And I said

[Chorus]

On my own,

Oh, baby, if you want to, be my lover
You better take me home,
Cause it's a long, long way, to paradise,
And I'm still on my own, own

    General CommentWhat turns me on about this song is the simplicity of it all. It goes to show that sometimes the best chords and lyrics are right infront of you. The backup vocals make it sound rockabilly it's great! This song must've been written by Alice's guitarist when he met some chick?

    General CommentOne of my favorite parts of this song is at the end. Neil Smith (drummer) drops a stick and it falls thru the drum kit and you can clearly hear it....and they decided it sounded too cool to take out.
