  • Dreaming, dreaming of a girl like me
    Hey what are you waiting for, feeding, feeding me
    I feel like I'm disappearing, getting smaller every day
    But I look in the mirror, I'm bigger in every way

    She said,
    You aren't never going anywhere
    You aren't never going anywhere
    I ain't never going anywhere
    I ain't never going anywhere

    I'm in heaven now, I can see you Richard
    Goodbye Hollywood, goodbye Downey, hello Janis
    Hello Dennis, Elvis and all my brand new friends
    I'm so glad you're all here with me, until the very end

    Dreaming, dreaming of how it's supposed to be
    But now this tunic's spinning, around my arms and knees
    I feel like I'm disappearing, getting smaller every day
    But when I open my mouth to sing, I'm bigger in every way

    She said,
    You aren't never going anywhere
    You aren't never going anywhere
    I ain't never going anywhere
    I ain't never going anywhere

    Hey mom! Look I'm up here, I finally made it
    I'm playing the drums again too
    Don't be sad, the band doesn't sound half bad
    And I remember mom, what you said
    You said honey, you look so under-fed

    Another green salad, another ice tea
    There's a tunic in the closet waiting just for me
    I feel like I'm disappearing, getting smaller every day
    But I look in your eyes, and I'm bigger in every way

    She said,
    You aren't never going anywhere
    You aren't never going anywhere
    I ain't never going anywhere
    I ain't never going anywhere

    Goodbye Richard, gotta go now
    I'm finally on my own, but Dan's got a gig
    Keep the love lights glowing, little girl's got the blues
    I can still hear momma say: "honey don't let it go to your head" Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
