Anne's Song

Album: Introduce Yourself (1987)
  • Hey
    What, what, what, what, what, what, what? Huh?
    Oh, nothing
    Just wondering why it is you're doing
    What? What is you're doing
    That whatever it is you're doing

    Oh yeah, why, why?
    I dunno
    It just doesn't seem like something you'd be doing, I mean
    You of all people, ha. Know what I mean?
    Yeah, I know it's been bugging you since the day I was born, huh?
    I asked my friend Anne about it

    I said, Anne, Anne, Anne, what am I supposed to do, huh?
    It's been bugging them since the day that I was born

    She said do whatever the hell you want to do
    Now is the time when you can do anything
    Everything you do, anything, it will still turn out great
    You've got the world at your feet

    I never claimed to be different
    I only said I was bored
    And she's tired of your uniqueness
    It sends her over head first
    Then the rest of her follows
    The breath of life, it never left her hollow

    And I can do everything, she says, she says with a smile
    And I can go anywhere tonight, 'cause I'm with Anne
    Anne, Anne, who? Anne Dagnabit
    Island princess girl with the juice
    What's this, I see she brought her whole uplown contingent

    First there's Johnny
    He always loves a party
    He's followed by Vinnie
    Who's feelin' kinda skinny

    He says hey Anne I'm starved what you got to eat
    She says Vinnie, you're always starving
    Man get away from that fridge

    Now, here comes Lucy
    She's feelin' really sexy
    She's followed by her boyfriend
    Who'd better not turn around this time or he's bound to lose her
    And followed by Jamilla, who's got the cream soda

    And I can do everything, I won't tell you again
    And we can go anywhere tonight, 'cause we're with Anne
    Anne

    And we can do anything we want, we'll tell you again
    We can can go anywhere tonight, 'cause we're with Anne Anne Anne
    Who? Anne Dagnabit
    Island princess girl with the juice

    Girl with the hots, hots for Ricky
    Whoop we're having fun, hey
    Whoop we're having fun, hey
    Hey hey Hey you guys, what?
    Additude Additude
    Hey Writer/s: BILL DAVID GOULD, CHUCK MOSLEY, JAMES BLANCO MARTIN, MICHAEL ANDREW BORDIN, RODDY CHRISTOPHER BOTTUM
