​Don't Talk To Me

This song is by Steve Forbert and appears on the album Mission Of The Crossroad Palms (1995).

One, Two, Three, Four

You're so pretty, babe, and I'm so blue
So hard for me to keep my hands off you
I can see your bra beneath your armpit there
I can see the outline of your underwear
Stand back, baby
Honey, don't talk to me

Have another drink and, darling, wreck my life
I've got seven children and a mean, smart wife
She can hear me think and smell the things I dream
What I'm dreaming now could make a dead man cream
Stand back, baby
Honey, don't talk to me

You're so pretty, babe, and I'm so weak
It's a mid-life crisis on a bad luck streak
You could kiss me once and make a brand new man
All I want for Christmas is a one-night stand
Stand back, baby
Honey, don't talk to me

All right
(Instrumental Bridge)

You're so pretty, babe, and I'm half dead
It's a ghost town city up inside of my head
Still there blooms a flower through the main street dirt
Every detail matters, but the best things hurt
Stand back, baby
Hon, honey, don't talk to me
