    There was a moon and a street lamp
    I didn't know I drank such a lot
    'Till I pissed a tequila-anaconda
    The full length of the parking lot

    Oh, I talk too loose
    Again I talk too open and free
    I pay a high price for my open talking
    Like you do for your silent mystery

    Come and talk to me
    Please talk to me
    Talk to me, talk to me
    Mr. Mystery

    We could talk about Martha
    We could talk about landscapes
    I'm not above gossip
    But I'll sit on a secret where honor is at stake

    Or we could talk about power
    About Jesus and Hitler and Howard Hughes
    Or Charlie Chaplin's movies
    Or Bergman's Nordic Blues

    Please just talk to me
    Any old theme you choose
    Just come and talk to me
    Mr. Mystery, talk to me

    You could talk like a fool, I'd listen
    You could talk like a sage
    Anyway the best of my mind
    All goes down on the strings and the page

    That mind picks up all these pictures
    It still gets my feet up to dance
    Even though it's covered with keyloids
    From the slings and arrows of outrageous romance

    I stole that from Willy the Shake
    You know, neither a borrower
    Nor a lender be
    Romeo, Romeo talk to me

    Is your silence that golden?
    Are you comfortable in it?
    Is it the key to your freedom
    Or is it the bars on your prison?

    Are you gagged by your ribbons?
    Are you really exclusive or just miserly?
    You spend every sentence
    As if it was marked currency

    Come and spend some on me
    Shut me up and talk to me
    I'm always talking
    Chicken squawking
    Please talk to me

    Ooh, talk to me, ooh
