"You And Me" as written by Dolores Mary O'riordan and Noel Hogan....
When I get home from work,
I want to wrap myself around you.
I want to take you and squeeze you
till the passion starts to rise.

I want to take you to heaven.
That would make my day complete.

But you and me ain't no movie stars.
What we are is what we are.
We share a bed,
some lovin',
and TV, yeah.
And that's enough for a workin' man.
What I am is what I am.
And I tell you, babe,
well that's enough for me.

Sometimes when you're asleep
and I'm just starin' at the ceiling,
I want to reach out and touch you,
but you just go on dreamin'.

If I could take you to heaven,
that would make my day complete.

But you and me ain't no movie stars.
What we are is what we are.
We share a bed,
some lovin',
and TV, yeah.
That's enough for a workin' man.
What I am is what I am.
And I tell you, sweetheart
that's just enough for me.

You and me ain't no super stars.
What we are is what we are.
We share a bed,
some popcorn,
and TV, yeah.
And that's enough for a workin' man.
What I am is what I am.
And I tell you, babe,
you're just enough for me.

When I get home from work,
I want to wrap myself around you.
I like to hold you squeeze you
till the passion starts to rise.

I want to take you to heaven.
That would make my day complete.

You and me ain't no movie stars.
What we are is what we are.
We share a bed,
of lovin',
and TV, yeah.
And that's enough for a workin' man.
What I am well that's what I am.
I tell you, baby,
that's just enough for me.

    General CommentTo me it is about someone who knows he has his soulmate. They may not have much money, but they know they will always have each other. Me and my hubby played it as one of our wedding songs because we relate to it :)

    General CommentI always thought this was some sort of satire, some sort of joke. I am not sure of that, but that is what it sounds like to me.

    General CommentI agree. This is one of the most un-Alice songs he ever did. It just has to be satire. Tell me that these awful lyrics could be anything more than a joke: "we share a bed, some lovin', and TV".

    General CommentI've never seen this as a satire at all. One of the best aspects of Alice Cooper to me is his ability to balance that dark humor and over the top shock aesthetic with some really tender and personal ballads. I don't detect the slightest bit of sarcasm in his voice here.
