Star 69 - Lyrics by REM


Lyrics

You don't have to take the bar exam to see
What you did is Ignoramus 103

Where have I got to hang my hat
you don't have line to me
all this just to be your friend
I was there to tell you
extortion and arson, petty larceny

I know you called. I know you called. I know you called.
I know you called. I know you called. I know you hung up my line.
Star 69.

I know all about the warehouse fire.
I know squirrelies didn't chew the wire.

Three people have my number, the other two were with me.
I don't stand tall, but I'm not your patsy.
This time you have gone too far with me.

I know you called. I know you called. I know you called.
I know you called. I know you called. I know you hung up my line.
Star 69.

Why'd you put your quarter down on me?
This reads like some dark Inside Edition, Hard Copy.
I can't be your character witness, I can't be your alibi.
Don't arrange the FBI, here this spy versus spy.
You my friend are guilty as can be.

I know you called. I know you called. I know you called.
I know you called. I know you called. I can't be your alibi.
Star 69.
