Will I ever know the outer fringes of you?
Will I ever let you know mine?
What can be found in your out skirts?
I’ll tell you what you might find in mine…
A slow down sign or two
A proceed with caution sign too
I’ll only roll out the red carpet to welcome you into my inner city
IF and only when I find you worthy
In my outer city limits you’ll see a cheap motel
For the lone traveler just passing through
Stay the night and no longer than that
You’ll also find a cheap diner
Where you can eat on the go
You’ll find a gas station
One with several sun faded signs
Where gas is just 10 cents a gallon
I want you to hurry and fuel up
So you can leave as fast as you can.
