Its a beautiful day today
Everything is going my way
Even the words are doing what I say
Oh babe...got to get away

To be impossible
Isnt that difficult
In the city youre invisible
When you come from a small town

Everything is all right
Everything is all right
Im not your baby...please

A tourist in a traffic jam
Baby sham and handy cam
Im not your mother, youre not my man
Im not your baby

Dont treat me like Im a trick
I wont treat you like youre a prick
Dont need no doctor, Im not ill
Im not your baby

Everything is all right
Everything is all right
Im not your baby...please

Cut out the poetry
Lets hit the main artery
No time for a tourniquet
Let the colours all run out of me

You brought me all kinds of goods
Now my heart is so full up it hurts
Its heavy as a shopping bag
Its full of things I should give back

Everything is all right
Everything is all right
Im not your baby...please

Dont want you to cover me
Smother me or mother me
I like to feel this incomplete
Im not your baby

Everything is all right
Everything is all right
Im not your baby...please

Not dizzy, just busy
Didnt drink nothing fizzy
No pills to feel easy
Dont know what got into me

Daylights a kind of robbery
The night is your geography
So youre not white, youre pink and rosy
You could be right, but youre way above me

Me, Im in recovery
A star of pornography
Im a tourist, theres a lot to see
You dont like the photographs of me

So youve got a lot to say
You dont sleep around, but sometimes you stray
You dont believe, often times you pray
For something, what is it babe

Dont treat me like Im a trick
I wont treat you like youre a prick
Dont need no doctor, Im not sick
Im not your baby

Everything is all right
Everything is all right
Im not your baby...please

Im not your baby
Im not your baby
Im not your baby
Im not your baby
Im not your baby
Im not your baby
Im not your baby

    General CommentOn one hand I'm surprised nobody has commented on this song, but then I think a lot of people have never heard it. Sinead O'Connor guest-starred on this track, as well.

    It's from the soundtrack to a Wim Wenders movie called "The End of Violence," which is a fantastic soundtrack, actually. It has not only this U2 song but a clever track by Tom Waits called "Little Drop of Poison" which showed up many years later in the soundtrack to Shrek 2, but I was among the few who knew it did not originate there.

    This album also had Roy Orbison's last song, "You May Feel Me Crying," and a lot of other great songs.

    Bailare el Marecumbe!

    Actually maybe the reason people haven't commented on this one is that the words to this one are pretty self-explanatory...

    General CommentI love this song! I get the feeling it's like a junky love song.
