In this town television shuts off at two
What can a lonely rock and roller do
The bed's so big and the sheets are clean
And your girlfriend said that you were nineteen
The Styrofoam ice bucket is full of ice
Come up to my motel room, treat me nice
Treat me nice

And I don't wanna make no late night New York calls
And I don't wanna stare at them ugly grass matt walls
Chronologically I know you're young
But when you kissed me in the club, you bit my tongue
I'll write a song for you, I'll put it on my next LP
Come up to my motel room, sleep with me
Sleep with me

There's a bible in the drawer, don't be afraid
I'll put up the sign to warn the cleanup maid
Yeah there's lots of soap end there's lots of towels
Never mind them desk clerk's scowls
I buy you breakfast, they'll think you're my wife
Come up to my motel room, save my life
Save my life
Come up to my motel room, save my life
Save my life
