Lyrics

LOOKING FOR CLUES

Music and Lyric by
McKinley Williams

Pullman car porters
gamblers with schemes
Lonely survivors
left out of the dream
Jailbirds and songbirds
blue collar routines
Dribblers with passions
too big for the team
Absentee fathers
whose blood pressures swell
Mothers in bondage
cut off from the well
Siblings with virtues
too anxious to sell
and me...I'M LOOKING FOR CLUES

Black panther brothers
cash in on their bag
Baptist redeemers
with jheri curl shags
"Tinsel Town" eunuchs
dressed to impress...
A night at the disco
headlined in the press
Sorority sisters
collegiate scene
they taunt you and scold you
then beg for your ring
Who'm I to wonder
at all of these things?
Must be my mission
unraveling the seam
Yeah me...I'M LOOKING FOR CLUES

Bridge:
Don't worry about me
I got the cold shoulder from you
so long ago!
Yeah it hurt me
but I've recovered
to live and dream!!!
Oh sugar, I know, the dollar's king
Well, I'm movin' over
there I go
So you can steal the glory
your backdoor esteem

Pullman car porters
gamblers with schemes
Lonely survivors
left out of the dream
Jailbirds and songbirds
blue collar routines
Dribblers with passions
too big for the team
Break dancin' brothers
pool room buffoons
Liquor store pharaohs
sealing their tombs
And doctors and lawyers
yearning to scream
alone on their journeys
too sacred and clean
And me...I"M LOOKING FOR CLUES.

TAG:

I'M LOOKING FOR CLUES
I'M LOOKING FOR CLUES
Every day, every way
Wo-oh-oh
I'M LOOKING FOR CLUES
Yearning for
open door...
Searching for...
Hoping for...
Living for...
Lusting for...I'M LOOKING FOR CLUES!
