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
think 'm gonna fall N love 2night
Elephants & flowers

Hot sweaty light paints a picture red & 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 & 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 & 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 & flowers
Strip down
think 'm gonna fall N love 2night

& when 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 & no chain
Strip down, strip down
Elephants & 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 & 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 & 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
