Boy is lonely on a burnin' hot summer night
He's lookin' 4 some action, he's lookin' 4 a fight
He's lookin' 4 a savior n a city full of fools
Maybe he just needs a good talker 2 give him a good talkin' 2
Can we talk, baby?
Strip down, strip down
I think I'm gonna fall n love 2night
Elephants and flowers

Hot sweaty light paints a picture red and gold
On a crowd of naked bodies stripped down 2 their very soul
How can he find a shy angel n a city so bold? (Super bold)
He can't even find a place 2 dance, huh, this is rock 'n' roll
Strip down, strip down
Elephants and flowers
Is everybody ready? Here we go

Love the 1 who is love, the 1 who gives us the power
The 1 who made everything (What?)
Elephants and flowers (What will He do?)
The 1 who will listen when all others will not (Oh yeah)
There will b peace 4 those who love God a lot
Elephants and flowers
Strip down
I think I'm gonna fall n love 2night

And when I do there won't b no more confusion
There won't b no more tears (No tears)
There won't b no more enemies so that eliminates all the fear
There won't b no sorrow, there won't b no pain
There won't b no ball and no chain
Strip down, strip down
Elephants and flowers
Huh

Boy is lonely on a burnin' hot summer night
He's lookin' 4 an angel 2 hold him till the mornin' light
Here we go

Love the 1 who is love (Well)
The 1 who gives us the power
The 1 who made everything, elephants and flowers (Oh yeah)
The 1 who will listen when all others will not
There will b peace 4 those who love God a lot
Oh

Here we go
Love the 1 who is love, the 1 who gives us the power
The 1 who made everything (What?)
Elephants and flowers (What will He do?)
The 1 who will listen when all others will not (Oh yeah)
There will b peace 4 those who love God a lot
