Lyrics
Foxy people enter the contest
While fifty-eight right hand men perpetrate
Speak to me, baby
Oh, I should’ve known it would turn out like this

Alone in the night, a sectional cross-bar
Just to shame the illiterates
Speak to me, baby
Oh, I should’ve known it would turn out like this

The taxi driver they call “McGuiver”
Is selling flames upon the Charleston blitz
Speak to me, baby
Oh, I should’ve known it would turn out like this

Against the cloud, while well endowed
My heart, my soul, my brain, my sane, and a cracklin’ glitz
Speak to me, baby
Oh, I should’ve known it would turn out like this, like this

Sinclair Soul will take over from here…

Analysis: Heavily influenced by Pink Floyd (who also had a song called “Speak to Me”), this song is like a space-age communication, first between two guitars, then between two distinct vocals, Ric and “Sinclair Soul”.
