She struts into the room Well I don't know her But with a magnifying glance I just sorta look her over We have a drink or two, well maybe three And then suddenly, she starts telling me her life story She says [Chorus] Baby, if you want to, be my lover You better take me home Cause it's a long long way to paradise And I'm still on my own. Told her that I came from Detroit City And I played guitar in a long haired rock and roll band She asked me why the singer's name was Alice I said 'listen baby, you really wouldn't understand' And I said [Chorus] On my own, Oh, baby, if you want to, be my lover You better take me home, Cause it's a long, long way, to paradise, And I'm still on my own, own
