come home with me honey
cos i like you lots
my place gets a little cold
might want to double your socks

and i will warm you with my loviní
as the temperature drops
weíll make it toasty as an oven
in my cardboard box

weíll cut out nice pictures of
fine food and drink
wash our little paper dishes
in the photo of a sink
iíll tape an ad to your shoulders
of catalogue mink
give ya newspaper roses
and champaign ink

my roommate willie is a good man
he just mostly gets stoned
but willie doesnít dig it
when i bring somebody home
iíll say "hey back off fat-man,
i donít like your tone!"
believe me, willie will turn over
and leave the two of us alone

come home with me honey...

can you possibly resist me?
donít i ring your bell?
you got that certain look that tells me
this is one hard sell
is it the outfit sweety?
is it the smell?
iíll slap on eau cologne
and get you under my spell!

and i will warm you with my loviní...

when i made the big bucks
and had my moment in the sun,
i only stood two paychecks
between the condo and the slum
in time i grew disgusted
by all the homeless scum
but babe iíve since adjusted
now that iím one

i punched out a little window
itís got a very lovely view
weíll take in all the action
down on the avenue
and if the natives get restless
and the cops turn cruel
well, thatís the price ya gotta pay for
urban renewal

come home with me sweety
cos i like you lots
my place gets a little cold
might wanna double your socks
and i will warm you with my loviní
as the temperature drops
weíll make it toasty as an oven
in my cardboard box
in my cardboard box
in my cardboard box
