See What I Wanna See - Lyrics

Friday night down on Houston,
In a spot called Bamboo Jack's,
Everyone was doin' the mambo
And drinkin' Golden Cadillacs.

Sally was there with her Daddy.
But Daddy was in a funk
'Cause Sally met up with and took a shine
To a hunk from East Podunk.

And Daddy cried, "Hey, Whatcha doin' watcha doin'?
What's he got I don't got?
All I see's
American cheese.
He'll melt when you get hot."

And Sally said:
"I see what I wanna see.
I know what I wanna know.
I don't need you
To tell me what's true
If you don't like it, Daddy,
You can blow, blow, blow, blow, blow!"

Saturday night at the same place.
They roll up the bamboo rug.
Everyone was doin' the limbo,
Except Sally and her Podunk Plug.
Seems he took a shine to some chicken
Shakin' her tom-tom-tom.
Sally saw that and---guacamole---
She exploded like the hydrogen bomb.

She cried, "Hey, hey watcha doin' watcha doin'?
What's she got that I lack?
That chicken is thin
And meaner than sin
And uglier than Bamboo Jack!"

The Husband/The Band: (sung)
And he said!

The Wife: (sung)
"I see what I wanna see
I know what I wanna know.
I don't need you
To tell me what's true
If you don't like it, baby,
You can blow blow blow blow blow blow blow blow!

I see what I wanna see
I know what I wanna know
I don't need you
To tell me what's true -
If you don't like it baby baby baby baby ba-ba-baby you can blow!"

Saturday night at the same place
And they roll out the bamboo rugs
Everyone was doing the limbo,
But I sat and pulled the plug

Susie took a shine to some chicken
Shakin' her tum-tum-tum
Sally saw that and walked away
And she exploded like a hotdog in a bun
But she cried hey what'cha doin' what'cha doin'?
What's she got that I lack?
The chicken is bland and I need it instead
As ugly as a bamboo jacks!

And he said I see what I wanna see,
I know what I wanna know, I don't you telling me whats true
If you don't like then you can blow-blow-blow-blow
*horns*
