Oh the guilty undertaker sights
the lonesome wolf and grinded cries
silver saxophones say I should’ve used you

Cracked up bells and washed out horns
they blow into my face would scorn
but it’s not the way I wasn’t born to lose you

I want you, I want you, honey I want you so bad
Honey I want you

Now the drunken politician leaps
upon the streets where mothers weep
saviors who are fast asleep they wait for you

And I wait for them to enter up
me drinking from that broken cup
and ask me to open up the gate for you

Because I want you, I want you, honey I want you so bad
Honey I want you

Now all my fathers they’ve gone down
true love they’ve been without it
but all their daughters put me down
because I don’t think about it

Well I return to the queen of spades
stop with my chambermaid
she knows that I’m not afraid to look at her

She is so good to me
and there is nothing she won’t see
she knows where I like to be but it doesn’t matter

Because I want you, I want you, honey I want you so bad
Honey I want you

And now
your dancing child with a shiny suit
he spoke to me I took his flute
I know I wasn’t very cute to him was I?

But I did it though because he lied
because he took you for a ride
because time was on his side
and because I..

I want you, I want you, honey I want you so bad
Honey I want you

    General CommentKristian straight up covering Bobby D. For all their similarities, Kristian pours more sincerity into this song than the original did - though not quite as much as Springsteen did.
