If I said that I love your learning
Would I be free of your yearning?
If I said that I knew your devices
Would I be free of your devising?
I know I don’t want to die alone
Will your belly become their home?
You and I know that it’s all attrition
Would you put yourself up to parturition?

Tell the truth, please
Will I be free in the morning?
Tell the truth, please
Will we be three in the morning?

All the things that I said don’t mean a thing
Except for that one burning thing
In the back street on Saturday night
Guess I wasn’t prepared for a fight
Guess I know my own mortality
This is my bid for immortality
You makes one
You and me makes two
You and me and baby makes three

Tell the truth, please
Will I be free in the morning?
Tell the truth, please
Will we be three in the morning?

I know I don’t want to die alone
Will your belly become their home?
You and I know that it’s all attrition
Would you put yourself up for parturition?
Guess I’m really older than I think
Will you put up with all the things?
Once more unto the breach my friends
And this, is this still the end?

Tell the truth, please
Will I be free in the morning?
Tell the truth, please
Will we be three in the morning?

    "I know I don't want to die alone
    Will your belly become their home?

    Would you put yourself up to parturition?"
