Sipping coffee at a quarter to two
I wake and I'm dialin' and my minds running to you
No wonder I'm a one woman man
She keeps my heart in a jar on the nightstand
I should tell her that she couldn't be more
Opposite than a foot in a door,
There's no one else I would rather go out with, that's hell when I see them standing there
Me and my mouth we don't mean to be rushin'
We talk about thee freely cuz we crushin'
I want to shake both sides of the butt, yeah
Theoretically yes ain't we lucky?

And when the coyotes they sing at the park
Till the city lights starts falling for the sea
Windin' rodes are winding down and the flyin men'll hit the ground
Every notion is closer to touching the coyotes sing when they call on your lovin'.

We're coming back for more,
You know why, we're coming for you
You know we should be, we should be together
Once we rock, we won't wanna stop
Not today or tomorrow.
You better lock your doors
You know why, cause we want you
Cause we like you a lot

I wish the world was alive like you.
I wish the wind would blow me through
Another opportunity to approach you
Another telepathic rendezvous
I wish you well with your weapon of jargon
You've got a double-sided lexicon
I got to try to keep your attention
Gotta write using less emoticons
Gotta figure out the snooze alarm
I wanna lay in your place till dawn
I wanna play in the park, come on
Now let me see your other upper echelon

And when the coyotes escape to new york
Then the city life has crumbled to the sea
And the girls will fall to the lost and found
The flying men'll hit the ground
Every notion is closer to touching the coyotes sing when they feast on your lovin'.
I'm a coyote and I got a taste for your lovin'.

Comin back for more,
You know why, we're coming for you
You know we should be, we should be together,
Because once we rock, we won't want to stop
Not today or tomorrow

    I think it's not only about "likes a girl", it's deeper than that. because he said "we", "we're coming for you". So it's talk about strategy to get something, just like want to save someone that's worth to be saved.
