It was a rainy night
We took a taxi to your mother's home
She went to Florida
And left you
With you father's gun alone
Upon her small white bed
I fell into a dream
You sat up all the night and watched me
To see
Who in the world I might be

I am from the Sunday school
I sing soprano in the upstairs choir
(Oh oh o-o-oh)
You are a holy man
On the FM radio
I sat up all the night and watched thee
To see
Who in the world you might be

You called me beautiful
You called your mother
She was very tanned
So you packed your tent and went
To live out in the Arizona sand
You are a refugee
From a wealthy family
You gave up all the golden factories
To see
Who in the world you might be
