Why don't you ask him if he's going to stay?
Why don't you ask him if he's going away?
Why don't you tell me what's going on?
Why don't you tell me who's on the phone?

Why don't you ask him what's going on?
Why don't you ask him who's the latest on his throne?
Don't say that you love me
Just tell me that you want me

Tusk
Just say that you want me
Just tell me that you

Tusk
Tusk
Tusk

    General CommentHalf of the song is cocaine paranoia.

    The other half is an inside joke (the band had started to refer to a penis as a "tusk" after seeing a phallic-shaped elephant tusk while on tour).

    It's all set to the USC Trojan Marching Band playing in an empty Dodger Stadium. Why? Why not? Fleetwood Mac were the biggest band in the world, and they weren't going to rest on their laurels...at least Buckingham wasn't. He was going to push the envelope and see what they could do. The album itself is brilliant, but what amazes me even more is that this song, as bizarre and surreal as it is, was actually a Top 10 hit late in 1979.
