  • What do the neighbors say
    When they hear us scream at night
    Do they talk about a love all in tatters
    What do the neighbors know
    About the heart and soul
    The fire down below that really matters
    They can never guess in the silences
    That all I want is you
    And the sexy hurricane we got here, oh, babe

    All I want is you
    I don't want a man who says "Good morning, dear", no, I don't
    (All I want is you, all that I want is you)
    (All I want is you, nobody else, no one but you)

    Let 'em listen at the door
    Let 'em listen through the floor
    Let 'em go ahead and draw the wrong conclusion
    So chase me 'round the room
    Make me crazy like the moon
    They can never guess in the silences
    And all I want is you
    And the sexy hurricane that we share (We share, yeah)

    All I want is you
    I don't want a man who tiptoes up the stairs, no, I don't
    (All I want is you, all that I want is you)
    (All I want is you, nobody else, no one but you)

    They can never guess in the silences
    That all I want is you (All I want is you)
    And the sexy hurricane that we share, oh uh oh

    All I want is you
    I don't want a man who tiptoes up the stairs (He's gonna fall)
    All I want is you
    And your freight train
    Whistlin' over my track, oh uh oh
    All I want is you
    And your Mack truck loving
    Jumping me, Jack
    Oh uh oh, Jack

  • Torque from StockholmI like Carly's sassy and charismatic lyrics. The last line of the song eludes my understanding tho. The one with "your Mack truck jumping...". Can anyone explain this line for me? Thanks in advance.
  • Robbie from Elizabethtown, KyI've always imagined this to be about an older couple who have been together for quite a while that bicker and argue but have developed a very strong bond and are still very passionate and romantic.
  • Martyn from Preston, Englandone of my favourite carly simon songs
