Rockwell? Rockwell?
Where do you live? Where do you live?
America!

Trouble in the world, poverty and crime
Deadly nuclear designs
Turn your TV on to the evening news
And you'll swear someone has lost their mind

But these days, you laugh it all away
Something must be wrong
Your worst fear ain't the bomb anymore
That's why I say

Baby on the corner
I'll be back, when, I don't know
Baby on the corner
I'll be back for sure when they find a cure

I'm a normal guy checkin' out the sights
I've been tempted once or twice
Yes, baby, now
'Cause something tells me I better keep my distance
Just one piece of cherry pie can change your life

So be wise when there's fire in your eyes
'Cause if you burn yourself, yeah
The doctor ain't no help anymore
That's why I say

Baby on the corner
I'll be back, when, I don't know
Baby on the corner
I'll be back for sure when they find a cure

You might say to yourself, "Self, this girl is fine"
Then you might ask yourself, "Can it hurt just one more time?"
Then you might run into someone you think is very clean
And the next thing you know, you look down and you've got gangrene
Know what I mean?

Baby on the corner
I'll be back, when, I don't know
Baby on the corner
I'll be back for sure when they find a cure

Babe, you know you drive me crazy
Don't you know? Don't you know?
You sit and sigh, you beg for me
I got to wait for a cure, cure, cure
I got to wait for a cure

I know you're there
Got to wait for a cure
Got to wait for a cure, they got to wait for a cure
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming to take me home
Where else could you go?
This song is from the album "The Genie".
