  • They want to get a statement for jesus' sake
    It's like a talking to the wall
    He's incommunicado no comment to make
    He's saying nothing at all

    But in the communique you know he's gonna come clean
    Think what he say
    Say what he means
    Maybe on Monday he got something to say

    Maybe he could talk about the tricks of the trade
    Maybe he could talk about himself
    Maybe he could talk about the money that he made
    Maybe he'd be saying something else

    But in the communique you know he's gonna come clean
    Think what he say,
    Say what he means
    Maybe on monday he got something to say

    And now the rumors are flying
    Speculation rising
    Say that he's been trying someone else's wife
    Somebody at the airport
    Somebody on the phone
    Says he's at the station and he's coming on the noon
    Then we get the story a serious breeze
    And a photograph taken in the hall
    You don't have to worry with the previous release
    Right now, he's saying nothing at all
    But in the communique you know he's gonna come clean
    Think what he say
    Say what he means
    Maybe on Monday he got something to say
