Take Manhattan (Explicit) - Soul Asylum

Well she started out working for an Illinois assembly line


Not really what she wanted

Just dealing with the feeling when

You're feeling like you wish it was fine

You just don't talk about it


And along came an offer from the city of steel


They were stranded at the airport

She could barely believe he was real


So she said


Make it happen take me to Manhattan

If you like LA that's cool


Or you could slip me right on down the Mississippi

I'd go anywhere with you


Well they met up on the river in the middle of the summertime

He was from out on the coast

And ever since he said

He'd never stop until they got it right


It's what they wanted the most


He had been everywhere and she'd been alone


They were just looking for a place to call home


So he said


How about Manhattan we can make it happen

I'll do California too


I know it's iffy but how about the Mississippi

I'd go anywhere with you


Any old town will do


I could die in the flyover zone with you


Then they started their first argument

And the fighting never stopped


It's just the same old story

All the boys and girls

Who never figure one another out


Then all the tears started pouring


She never wanted


To see him again


Then the map came off the wall

She started marking it with a red pen


Then she said


Well take Manhattan where anything can happen

You take California too


Forever after with or without laughter

We got better things to do


Take Manhattan where anything can happen

You take California too


Take the planet you can f**king have it

Look out cause she's coming for you
