"What's Your Name" as written by and Tom Scholz....
Well I saw her just as I was leaving
Crossing in between the cars
Sometimes seeing is just not believing
Like a spaceship coming down from mars

Total attraction you're driving me insane a chain reaction
Baby, tell me what's your name baby, what's your name
Yeah, you know I'm not that underhanded
But I didn't know what else to do
So I told her that the ships had landed
And I told her "I'll take care of you"

Total attraction you're driving me insane a chain reaction
Baby, tell me what's your name baby, what's your name?
Come on girl, what's your name?

Oh, look out

Well, I know you wouldn't understand it
Didn't know what I should say or do
And it wasn't quite the way I planned it
But I had to find a way to you

Total attraction you're driving me insane a chain reaction
And baby, tell me what's your name?

Baby, what's your name, baby, what's your name?

    General CommentThe CD booklet says this song is about aliens. The part I like is in the guitar solo when the twin guitars sync up and another guitar makes a whooshing noise in the background like a spaceship.

    General Commenti think its just a metaphor, i dont think they would lyric she in there if it was, but i guess it is hard to go against teh book, sometimes i think they want people to believe whatever. seems more like a girl who hes reall attracted to and wants to know her name and talk to her. just my opinion, i think this cd was way underrated.

    General CommentThis song is hilarious; it's about this guy who's about to leave somewhere, and he sees this very attractive girl in the parking lot. He goes up to her and doesn't know what to say, so he says "The ships have landed. I'll take care of you."

    And yes, I love the "subliminal extraterrestrial vehicles", too! :D

    General CommentEvery time I here this the synth reminds me of "Bette Davis Eyes" by Kim Carnes.
