Baby, baby, I've been so sad since you've been gone
Way back to New York City where you do belong
Honey, I miss your 2-tone kisses, legs wrapped around me tight
If I ever get back to fun city, girl, I'm going to make you scream all night

Honey, honey, call me on the telephone
I know you're moving out to Hollywood with your can of tasty foam
All those beat up friends of mine got to get you in their books
And lead guitars and movie stars get their toe beneath your hood

Yeah, you're a starfucker, starfucker, starfucker, starfucker, star
Yeah, a starfucker...

Yeah I heard about your Polaroids, now that's what I call obscene
Your tricks with fruit was kind of cute, I bet you keep your pussy clean
Honey, I miss your 2-tone kisses, legs wrapped around me tight
If I ever get back to New York, girl, I'm going to make you scream all night

Yes, you are...

Yeah, Ali McGraw got mad with you for giving head to Steve McQueen
Yeah, you and me we made a pretty pair balling through the silver screen
Honey, I'm open to anything, I don't know where to draw the line
Yeah, I'm making bets that you're going to get John Wayne before he dies

Give us a kiss
With a twist
Come on, little girl
