Baby, I heard thunder, I woke up in the middle of the night.
Baby, I saw fire, I went left, I went right.

So you tell me what'd you want me to do?
This might be over, honey it ain't through.
Let me know when you're finished with me.
What'd you want me to be?
Baby, you tell me. Baby, you tell me.

Baby, I don't understand this, but that's alright.
I can take a little pain, I've been winnin' and losin'.
Baby, I've been in and out of the rain.

So you tell me what'd you want me to do?
This might be over, honey it ain't through.
Let me know when you're finished with me.
What'd you want me to be?
Baby, you tell me. Baby, you tell me.

Well, you put me through your paces and
You twisted 'til I felt like dyin'.
Yeah, the last thing that I need was to finally realize
That you were lyin'.

So you tell me what'd you want me to do?
This might be over, honey it ain't through.
Let me know when you're finished with me.
What'd you want me to be?
Baby, you tell me. Baby, you tell me.

    General CommentA somewhat-unknown gem from Damn the Torpedoes, which has a cool late 70's groove. It's obvious the song is about some girl putting the screws to the singer, but the music has a serious tone to it.

    General CommentI love every track on Damn the Torpedoes, literally. This track, like the others, is very honest in what it wants to say, it feels like it's coming from the heart. Love it!
