lyrics

WHO KNOWS WHAT MY BABY'S GONNA DO NEXT

Hey puzzle-lovers, got myself a lady
She’s pretty, she’s smart, she likes to win
Got me mesmerized, hypnotized
She knows how to draw me in

She says she’s early when she’s two hours late
She says she’s ready but she makes me wait
If she goes off track it’s all part of the act
Just one more thing she orchestrates

No early warning system
Can predict how she’ll behave
If she says she is leaving, all that means is
She’s gonna stay

She’s got a new film about a million-dollar swindle
I’m the cop who has to solve the riddle
I have to close the case in half the time it takes
'Cause the story ends right in the middle

Who knows what my baby’s gonna do next
No way to figure out what that might be
She doesn’t move an inch when she sways
She’s as calm as twenty-foot waves
She’ll give me anything I want
But I won’t know what it is until it hits me

Outside the library deciding who to choose
She sees one covered in bird tattoos, she says
'You can pay installments on a book that’s overdue, if
Your pigeon lays down a deposit for you.'

She heard someone whining, the machines were rigged
It just wasn’t fair. She said
'If you’re having trouble sleeping when you leave the casino
You should move your bed in there.'

Who knows what my baby’s gonna do next
No way to figure out what that might be
One minute she’s angry
The next she’s all over me with kisses
I swear that lady’s gonna put the oddsmakers
Out of business

Just when I think I am
Oh so close to winning
I see the roulette wheel has turned to stone
I’m the one who’s spinning

She’s got me right where she wants me, going ‘round in circles
Caught inside a waterspout
Am I outside banging on a door to get in
Or am I inside trying to get out?

Who knows what my baby’s gonna do next
No way to figure out what that might be
She’s always ten steps ahead and one day
She’ll break my heart I know, even so
Gotta try to keep up with her
‘Cause I don’t wanna miss the show

Who knows, who knows
Who-oo knows, what she’s gonna do
Who-oo-oo knows, what my baby’s gonna do.
