Sign Language

You speak to me

In sign language

As I'm eating a sandwich

In a small cafe

At a quarter to three

But I can't respond

To your sign language.

You're taking advantage,

Bringing me down.

Can't you make any sound?

.

'Twas there by the bakery

Surrounded by fakery

Tell her my story

Still I'm still there.

Does she know I still care?

.

Link Wray was playin'

On a jukebox I was payin'

For the words I was sayin'

So misunderstood

He didn't do me no good.

.

You speak to me

In sign language

As I'm eating a sandwich

In a small cafe

At a quarter to three

But I can't respond

To your sign language.

You're taking advantage,

Bringing me down.

Can't you make any sound?

.
