a double bed in a single room
couple chairs and dining room table
the radio plays that ? tune
and i been loving you for too long, baby
but don't believe it's true
'cause i could never love you for too long.

another day finds a different town
i do my best not to play the crown?
but sometimes i can't help myself
polly, can i take your friend to the airport?

why do i do the things i do?
i don't know. how 'bout you?
why do you do what you do?
you don't know. you just do.
why do i do the things i do?
i don't know. how 'bout you?
why do you do what you do?
you don't know. you just do.
you don't know.

do you seek fortune?
do you grant fame?
do you want everybody to know your name?
the cameras flash as the question's asked
and i can't believe i hear myself singing.
it's not another step to me
take my time. wait and see.

________
________ you won't find me.
and that's fine with me.
i want a double bed in a single room
couple chairs and a dining room table.

    General CommentThe radio plays that *Otis* tune. This is a reference to the song "I've Been Lovin You a Little Too Long" by Otis Redding, which is a great song.
