"911" as written by Stephen Broughton Lunt and Cyndi Lauper....
There's a riot in the kitchen and the bed's on fire
There's a locket in my pocket that I can't find
Oh I'm at the window whistling in the wind
I'm at my own front door and I can't get in

I'm dialing up 911
I'm on the brink of trouble again,
If you could change the time, a little,
Then everything would be
Fine, fine, fine

Tell me do you have a home-made remedy,
The only time we talk is in our sleep
Oh he likes mornings, I like the moon
It's a typical case of too little, too soon

I'm dialing up 911
I'm on the brink of trouble again,
If you could change the time, a little,
Then everything would be
Fine, fine, fine

...My back is in the corner,
My boat is taking on water,
You can't wrap fire up in paper
And you can't rap your way out of here

Oh I like mornings, he likes the moon
It's a typical case of too late, too soon

I'm dialing up 911...

    General CommentI interpreted this as the troubles of a sexual relationship. It may be about couples who are "active" at different times, because in an interview on Good Sex, Cyndi said she's active at night and her partner (Dave Wolff at the time) was active in the mornings. This is why the lyrics read 'oh he likes mornings, I like the moon').
