The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite


This here is the place where I will be stayin’



There isn’t a number, you can call the payphone

Let it ring a long, long, long, long time



If I don’t pick up, hang up, call back

Let it ring some more 



Lyrics from “The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite” by R.E.M., 1992.
