lyrics

Her name's Melyssa with a "y"
She says come on baby, let's go get high
No that's a lie, but where should I start?
Her claddagh ring invites me into her heart.

You have given me so much air time girl
[Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl]
And I just don't know what to do
I don't know what buttons to push now babe
[Here with my new toy]
[[I'm just helpless here with my new little toy]]
[[[Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl]]]
And I just don't know what
Just don't know
Don't know what.

It's been torn out of the last SOB by those little gold hands
You may want lovin' but they've got other plans
Her little golden navel peaks out from under its tiny shirt
Its only company is a crude tatoo which I think just says "Dirk"

You have given me so much air time girl
[Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl]
And I just don't know what to do
I don't know what buttons to push now babe
[Here with my new toy]
[[I'm just helpless here with my new little toy]]
[[[Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl]]]
And I just don't know what
Don't know what
Just don't know.

She writes her number on the back of a brochure
And then she finally stops calling me sir.
when I leave I know I'll never see her again,
But that's OK 'cause she's forever stuck in my brain.

You have given me so much air time girl
[Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl]
And I just don't know what to do
I don't know what buttons to push now babe
[Here with my new toy]
[[I'm just helpless here with my new little toy]]
[[[Melyssa, I can't handle this without you girl]]]
And now I just don't know what
Just don't know
Just don't know what to do.
