Tonight woke I, a strange bed
Strange bedfellow strange
Tonight, found I, a strange bed
A strange bedfellow strange

Said it to me, oh you'll be alright
Oh said it to me, oh you'll be alright
In a strange bed, in a strange bed
The bedfellow strange

Said it to me, what they've always said
Said it to me, what I've always heard
You're gonna make it, you're gonna make it
You're gonna make it, girl

You're gonna make it, you're gonna make it
You're gonna make it, girl
Girl, you sleep with success
Girl, you sleep with success

Well tonight, slept I have in the beds of middle America
Life off the fat of the man
Oh, now I'm going to go out tonight
I'm gonna try, try to make it
Live I, as fast as I can
Live I, as fast I as can

Oh, and I said to it, success
I didn't recognize you at first
But then I said to it, success
You don't look the way I have dreamed of you
Dreamed of you

We're not strange, said success
To find me here to tonight
We're not strange, said success
So what say you to a bargain?
Twixt you and I, success in life
What say you to a bargain?
Twixt you and I, success
And success it said to me

Forget about the beds of middle America
You don't need the fat of the man
Now why don't you sleep with me tonight
That's all you've got to do to make it
And I, as fast as we can
And I, as fast we as can

Oh and then I said to it, success
I couldn't love you if I tried
Oh, and then I said to it, success
I couldn't love you if I tried
And I've tried and I've tried and I've tried

Something about success that lies
Something about success that lies
Lies next to me in a strange bed
In a strange bed, bedfellow strange

    General CommentThis song is so freaking great! This song seems to be about success, especially in show bussiness and the arts. How it is relative, and doesn't nessessarily mean better art or happiness. I love how she talks to success. THe idea of success being embodied and saying "All you have to do is sleep with me tongiht." is just amazing. This song = awesome

    General Commenti like reading this sound aloud. it does not need the instruments in order to be beautiful.
    what i think:
    about a women who is in search of success but it always seems that she can never find it. or she is looking in the wrong place. she finally "meets success" in the oddest place. convinces her you know you'll be alright! sort of corresponds with a relationship as well. dating many man in search for the right one but then meeting the one you thought was right and figuring out he isn't all that great anyway " something about success that lies.."
    great song. beautiful voice.
