Mmm yeah

Fingerprint file, you get me down
You keep me running, know my way around
Yes you do, child

Fingerprint file, you bring me down
Keep me running, you keep me on the ground
Know my moves way ahead of time
Listening to me on your satellite
Yeah

Feeling followed, feeling tagged
Crossing water, trying to wipe my tracks

And there's some little jerk in the FBI
Keeping papers on me 6 feet high
It gets me down

You better watch out on your telephone
Wrong number, they know you ain't home

Who's the man on the corner, that corner over there?
I don't know - well, you better lay low
Watch out

Keep on the look-out, electric eye
Rats on the sell out - who's going to testify?

You know my habits way ahead of time
Listening to me on your satellite

Hello, baby
Yeah, you know, we ain't, we ain't talking alone
Who's listening? I don't really know
But you better tell the SIS to keep out of sight
Cause I know they're taking pictures on the ultraviolet light

Yes, uh huh, yeah but these days it's all secrecy, no privacy
Shoot first, that' s right
Yeah, you know...

Bye bye

Who's listening?
Right now somebody is listening to you
Keeping their eyes peeled on you
What a price, what a price to pay

All right

Good night, sleep tight
