  • In this town television shuts off at two
    What can a lonely rock & roller do
    Oh the bed's so big and the sheets are clean
    and your girlfriend said that you were 18
    The Styrofoam ice bucket is full of ice
    Come up to my motel room treat me nice
    I don't want to make no late night New York calls
    and I don't want to stare at them ugly grassmatt walls
    chronologically I know you're young
    but when you kissed me in the club you bit my tongue
    I'll write a song for you, I'll put it on my next L.P
    Come up to my motel room, sleep with me !
    There's a Bible in the drawer don't be afraid
    I'll put up the sign to warn the cleanup maid
    Yeah there's lots of soap end there's lots of towels
    never mind them desk clerk's scowls
    I buy you breakfast, they'll think you're my wife
    Oh come up to my motel room, save my life
    Come up to my motel room, save my life Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
