Baby

Ha ha ha

You know it’s about quater to one
I’m stuck out here in Detroit City
[Yeah]
Can’t seem to find my way home
[There ain’t no home]
I don’t know where
Which way to get down
To get back
To my White Scrapie

You see I got a long way to go
[Don’t run there boy fly there on the way back]
Travelling from town to town
And baby
[Getting kinda hungry]
When I woke up this morning
Step out the door of the hotel
You know what I saw in the trees?
[A chicken up]
Insects
Ha ha
That’s right
[Talking about sex]
[Saw a chicken have sex]
Crawling all around the parking lot
Crawling up the trees
Out of the tail of automobiles
Insects
[I was there]
[I was there]
[Inside]
[I was there]
Insects

Ho, ho
Ho, ho, ho
Yeah
Ha, ha, ha

Oh baby
[Yeah]
You see they got a lot of soul out in detroit
[They got it here]
They’ve got a lot of soul in Philadelphia
New York City
[I bet you got some of that soul too]
All the way back, across the land
And all the way upto London, England
[I know you got soul]
[I can feel it]
[Down into my bones]
I ain’t gonna stop
I’m gonna keep on crawling
[I know you got soul]
[I know you got soul]
Crawling
[I know you got soul]
Like a bug
[I know you got soul]
Insects
[Soul of mine]
Oh yeah
Ah
I love you White Scrapie
Out here
Peeling back my finger nails
Crawling out my eyelids
Oh
I love you
White Scrapie
[Yeah]
[Yeah]
I’ve grown a hard shell
[Oh]
[So soft on the inside]
Bright irridescent green
[Ha ha]
I got wings
Coming out my trousers
The greatest thing you’ve ever seen
[You a fly]
White Scrapie

On the inside

‘Til I get back home
