New York Dolls – Gotta Get Away From Tommy lyrics

Tommy's got a brother named Thomas
And another brother named Tom
Their father's a professional fighter
And I think so is their mom

Gotta get away, gotta get away
Get away from Tommy
But Tommy won't get away
Won't stay away from me
Get away from me, Tommy

Tommy gets his wisdom through excess
Tommy don't hold no scorn
Transcends limits of his culture
The very one from where I was born

Gotta get away, gotta get away
Get away from Tommy
But Tommy won't get away
Won't stay away from me
Get away from me, Tommy

Tommy don't follow no tradition
The song that he sings is his own
I can hear the shame bells ringing
I don't wanna die alone

Gotta get away, gotta get away
Get away from Tommy
One time and he won't get away
Won't stay away from me

Gotta get away, gotta get away
Get away from Tommy
But Tommy won't get away
Won't stay away from me
Get away from me, Tommy
