babs & babs lyrics – hall & oates

babs and babs lay dreaming in a four poster bed

arm in arm, head to head, babs and babs

babs said, “whatcha thinking? ”

she said, “nothing

but i never do ’cause i leave it up to you”

babs looked out the window

saw the moon and the sky

she saw the clouds drifting by

voices crying and sighing and dying but she said nothing

“look out on the lawn, there’s a moon out tonight

there’s a moon out tonight, can’tcha see? ”

“silver dreams don’t move me or your talk of the stars

and this isn’t the time or place to make a fool of me.

no one wants to hear you when you’re slipping away

and the light of your day always shows up the strength of your vision.”

but she said nothing.

so babs said “don’t you worry, i’ll take good care of you

you’re lack of feeling’s a rotten thing

but i’ll show you what to do.

girl, you’ve got to get away

girl, you’ve got to feel, oh, yeah.”

babs said “don’t you patronize me, i’m fine the way i am

at least i know what’s happening

and i know just where i stand.

you live alone you die alone

when your dreams all fade away, oh, yeah.”

never compromising, never see eye to eye

so they turn, with a sigh, babs and babs

have to be together like the night and the day

so they might as well stay the best of friends.

locked in love we leave them with the moon in the sky

with the clouds drifting by

voices crying and sighing and dying and we say nothing

she said nothing
