I got an airplane ticket
And my shirt is stickin' out of my jeans
You got me painted in the corner
Where I'm livin' way beyond my means
Outside my window
A bird once flew
Now I don't even care
What kind of gum I chew
And oh baby
I just wanna be with you

Well I don't wanna wash the dishes
But I'm wishin' I could wash my hair
You been on my mind so long
You must livin' up there
Well it's up to the circus
And down to the zoo
The monkey's lookin' at me
Like I'm lookin' at you
And oh baby
I just wanna be with you

I don't wanna go to london
To visit the queen
She don't like my english
If you know what I mean
Don't wanna walk around
Like I got nothin' to do
Uh uh baby wanna be with you
Uh uh baby wanna be with you

Well I was cleaning out my wallet
While I'm sittin' on my livin' room rug
I was lookin' at the numbers of the women
That I thought I dug
There was one that begged
One that teased
One God blessed me
Every time I sneezed
But oh baby
I just wanna be with you

Bridge:
I wanna be with you
When there ain't no love
When the banks all close
With the stars above
Lonely won't be lonesome
When we get through
And uh uh baby wanna be with you
Uh uh baby wanna be with you
