Lyrics verse 1:
NOT MANY SURPRISES
LEFT COMING TO ME,
BUT IT MAKES ME SMILE,
WHAT I'M TURNIN'
OUT TO BE.
I STILL GET SOMETHING
OUT OF MUSIC'S CHARMS,
I STILL FEEL SOMETHING
INSIDE SOMEONE'S ARMS.
ANY QUESTIONS
YOU WANT ANSWERED,
ANYTHING
YOU WANT TO KNOW?

Chorus:
JUST ASK ME I'VE BEEN THERE,
SEEN ANGELS AND SIN THERE,
I KNOCKED
AND THEY LEFT ME IN THERE,
I'VE BEEN THROUGH IT ALL.

verse 2:
I WATCHED A GIRL
BECOME A WOMAN ONE DAY,
SHE WAS A QUEEN
BUT SHE HAD TO GO 'WAY.
AND THOUGH THAT KIND OF
LEAVES ME ALL ALONE,
IT'S GOOD TO SEE HER
MAKE IT ON HER OWN,
LOT OF FUN IN REAPING
ALL THE SEEDS YOU SOW.

Chorus:
JUST ASK ME 'VE BEEN THERE,
SEEN ANGELS AND SIN THERE,
KNOCK AND THEY'LL LET YOU
IN THERE,
JUST MENTION MY NAME,
I'VE BEEN THROUGH IT ALL,
I'VE BEEN THROUGH IT ALL.

verse 3:
WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE
NEED THIS KIND OF A PACE?
THE REASON WHY
IS STAMPED ON EV'RY FACE.
THEY NEED A PLACE
TO FEEL THEIR SKIN IS WARM,
AND LOTS OF LOVE IS MADE -
BUT NO ONE'S BORN.
SO BEFORE WE START
THIS NUMBER,
IF THERE'S SOMETHING
YOU WANT TO KNOW.

Chorus:
JUST ASK ME I'VE BEEN HERE,
SEEN ANGELS AND SIN HERE,
KNOCK AND THEY'LL LET YOU
IN HERE,
I'VE BEEN THROUGH IT ALL.
JUST ASK ME I'VE BEEN HERE,
SEEN ANGELS AND SIN HERE,
KNOCK AND THEY'LL LET YOU
IN HERE,
I'VE BEEN THROUGH IT ALL.
JUST ASK ME I'VE BEEN HERE,
SEEN ANGELS AND SIN HERE,
KNOCK AND THEY'LL LET YOU
IN HERE,
I'VE BEEN THROUGH IT ALL.
