I Never Talk to Strangers - Lyrics

Stop me if you've heard this one
I feel as though we've met before
Perhaps I'm mistaken
But it's just that I remind you
Of someone you used to care about
But that was long ago
Do you think I'd fall for that
I wasn't born yesterday
Besides I never talk to strangers anyway

I ain't a bad guy when you get to know me
I just thought there ain't no harm
Hey just try minding your own business
Bud who asked you to annoy me
With your sad repartee
Besides I never talk to strangers anyway

Your life's a dimestore novel
This town is full of guys like you
And you're looking for someone to take the place of her
And you're bitter cause he left you
That's why you're drinkin in this bar
Well only suckers fall in love
With perfect strangers

It always takes one to know one stranger
Maybe we're just wiser now
And been around the block so many times
That we don't notice
That we're all just perfect strangers
As long as we ignore
That we all begin as strangers
Just before we find
We really aren't strangers anymore

Writer(s): Tom Waits
