Lyrics

Call Me Single Cover

Theodore:
We got somethin', we both know it
We don't talk too much about it
Ain't no real big secret
All the same, somehow, can't get around it

Listen, it don't really matter to me, baby
You believe what you wanna believe

Theodore (Simon & Alvin):
I say don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)

Theodore:
Somewhere, somehow, somebody
Must've kicked you around some
Tell me why you wanna lay there
Reveling in your abandon

Alvin:
Theodore, what do those words really mean?

Theodore:
Beats me!
It don't make no difference to me, baby
Everybody has to fight to be free

Theodore (Simon & Alvin):
So, don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
No, you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)

Theodore:
Baby, we ain't the first
I'm sure a lot of other lovers been cursed
Right now, this ain't real to you, but it's
One of those things you gotta feel to be true

Somewhere, somehow, somebody
Must've kicked you around some
Who knows, maybe you were kidnapped
Tied up, taken away and held for ransom

It don't really matter to me, baby
Everybody has to fight to be free

Theodore (Simon & Alvin):
So, you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
I said, you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
No, you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
