Boy is lonely on a burning hot summer night
He's looking for some action, he's looking for a fight
He's looking for a savior in a city full of fools
Maybe he just needs a good talker to give him a good talking to

Can we talk baby? Strip down, strip down
I think I'm gonna fall in love tonight

Elephants and flowers
Hot sweaty light paints a picture red and gold
On a crowd of naked bodies stripped down to their very souls
How can he find a shy angel in a city so bold (so bold)
He can't even find a place to dance, this is rock and roll

Strip down, strip down, elephants and flowers
Is everybody ready? Here we go

Love the one who is love (love)
The one who gives us the power, (power)
The one who made everything (what?)
Elephants and flowers (what will he do?)
The one who will listen when all others will not
There will be peace for those who love God a lot

Elephants and flowers
Strip down. Think I'm gonna fall in love tonight
When I do, there won't be no more (confusion)
There won't be no more (no tears)
There won't be no more enemies, so that eliminates all the fear

There won't be no sorrow (sorrow)
There won't be no pain (no pain)
There won't be no ball and no chain
Strip down, strip down
Elephants and flowers, huh

Boy is lonely on a burning hot summer night
He's looking for an angel to hold him till the morning light

Here we go
Love the one who is love (well)
The one who gives us the power (power)
The one who made everything (one)
Elephants and flowers (oh, yeah)
The one who will listen when all others will not
There will be peace for those who love God a lot
