"Take Me Into Town" as written by Scott A Mcmicken, Toby Mark Leaman and Francis Xavier Mcelroy....
Well I've been waiting for the rain to break
But I guess my waiting's through
It's been dry as a bone since 1982
And I've been trying to protect myself
With these possessions I keep on his walls
All my books and my records but they dont give me shadow at all
We're both smart enough to know better but
Come on come on come on
Take me into town
Take me into town

Oh did you see my boots when you walked in
Y'know I guess this shirt'll do
I'm broke as a monkey and I could use a drop or two
Well I know just what I'll do when I get there
You know I saw it in a magazine
I can get so low you'll have to bill me from off of the street
We're both smart enough to know better but
Come on come on come on
Take me into town
Take me into town
Take me into town
Take me into town
(take me into town) x3

Well I've been talking to the dog for days
But you know it's just no use
She's sitting like a sphinx and I can't get to the truth
And I've been staring at the floor for days
Trying to figure out what it all means
But I know when I'm awake I'm dumber in my dreams
We're both smart enough to know better but
Come on come on come on
Take me into town (x4)
