C'mon boys
When I woke up this mornin
Boys I was gone
My girlfreind asked me
Where do I come from
Put my face up in the mirror
Just to clock my wheres
First thing I know I gotta get outta here

(on back to) babylon
(I gotta get away, to) babylon
(so I can't stay) babylon
(cus it's too much fun) babylon

I gotta run, I can't look back
I gotta get back, I get down to babylon
(I'm goin to babylon)

I was drivin ou tonite
And boys I was gone
The coppers asked me
Where do I come from
One looks at my cards
One checks my id
With this junk on my face
It's easy to see

(I'm from) babylon
(I gotta get away, to) babylon
(I can't stay) babylon
(havin too much fun) babylon

I gotta run, I can't look back
I gotta get back, I get down
I gotta get around to babylon

Let's go to babylon boys
Two girls for every boy

Well a babylon girl ain't got no past
The babylon girl gots to talk so fast
The babylon men gonna be a boy
With the babylon girl out lookin for a joy
(in) babylon
(I gotta get away, to) babylon
(beggin I can't stay) babylon
(havin to much fun) babylon

I gotta run, I can't look back
I gotta get back, I get down
I wont be safe, child nobodys safe til they're in babylon
(I'm goin to babylon)

Shes been massagin all day but she's thinkin 'bout you daddy
Thinkin bout you daddy til they all go away
And when she up there dancin she's just tryin make a buck
Tryin make some money gonna give you all a look

(I'm from) babylon
(I gotta get away, to) babylon
(I can't stay) babylon
(havin too much fun) babylon
(I'm from) babylon
(I gotta get away, to) babylon
(I can't stay) babylon
(havin too too too much fun) babylon

I gotta run, I can't look back
I gotta get back, I get down
I wont be safe, I wont be free, til I hit babylon
(I'm goin to babylon)
