Why Don’tcha?

Original Version 2:45

You’re startin’ the trip
Where sugar’s so sweet
You’re pullin’ a face
And pushin’ your feet
Chillin’ is easy
You hide in the beat
But you’re a loner

If you want to say hello
If you want to talk real slow
Why don’tcha phone her?
If you want the ice to glow
If you want the stars to show
Why don’tcha call her?

Pullin’ the break
Is a stupid mistake
Time is right now
Gotta take what you make
No finger in the cake
When your body’s a quake
Can overthrow ya

If you want to say hello
If you want to talk real slow
Why don’tcha phone her?
If you want the high to grow
If you’ve seen a UFO
Why don’tcha call her?

If you want to see the light
If you want to dance all night
Why don’tcha phone her?
If you want to touch the sun
If you want to join the fun
Why don’tcha phone her?
If you want the high to grow
If you’ve seen a UFO
Why don’tcha call her?
