Lyrics

If the man must be-
Sleepin’ at home all the time
And if the woman must be-
Out working all the time
No matter which
No matter which woman he has
And no matter how many-
How many men she has
They all gotta go – back to home position
They all gotta know – the 99th home position.

Do you wanna work?
Do you wanna be sanctified?
Do you wanna come around?
Do you wanna be right?
See you in the desert

See you in the town
Here’s your precious life
Buried underground.
I can hear you singin’
Hear you comin’ round.
Now you are lost –
Do you want to be found?
Do you want to be found?

Hear me call. Here me call.
Do you wanna know
The 99th home position.

Now the man must take her
Indoors all the time
And the woman must take him
Outdoors all the time.
No matter which
No matter which man she keeps
And no matter how long
No matter how long he sleeps
They all gotta go back to home position.
They all gotta know the 99th home position.
