Will Butler – What I Want lyrics
Tell me what you want babe and I will get it
Though it might take three to five business days, maybe longer
I forget 'cause my head's in a bit of a haze
Since I let you down I don't know where I am going,
I don't know where I lost my shoes
I'm distracted by this one, particular shade of blue.
I bet you're wondering if I remember,
Oh well I remember just about everything
Except what time it was,
And where we were oh, and one more thing.
I will tell you what I want, what I wanted to say
I will tell you if it's okay, if it's okay, if it's okay.
If you come and take my hand I will buy you a pony.
We can cook it, for supper
I know this great recipe for pony macaroni.
Later on we can walk the beach,
Oh you know that we can walk along the waves out to Greenland
You can bury me there in an ice grave
I'm so hot these days but sometimes oh,
I get, so cold I've been told
It's a side effect from staring into the sun too long.
If you told me that there was a war I would fight for you.
If you told me that there was a war,
I would fight till we're all free,
Until we were all free
I said what about Tuesday night are you free?
My body's not prepared for this,
I can feel my heart beat out of my chest,
I apologize if I get heart blood all over
Your nice floral dress but it's not my fault so don't blame me,
Don't blame me, don't blame me 'cause it's not my fault it's your fault!
Now I'm not saying that we should rush this,
I'm not suggesting that we should start having kids but maybe,
We could think about getting a dog or a fish tank or a jar of squids
Or maybe just a chicken coop full of Alligators
I will go along with whatever you say.
I'm not a details man I just wanna,
Hang around and maybe get a chance
To hold your hand don't tell me I've, made a mistake.
I will tell you what I want, what I wanted to say
I will tell you if it's okay, if it's okay
I will tell you if it's not too late, if it's not too, not too late
And I will tell if it's okay if it's okay
If it's okay, if it's okay
If it's okay.
