Lyrics

They wanna get a statement for Jesus’ sake
It’s like a talking to the wall
He’s incommunicado no comment to make
He’s saying nothing at all

But in the communiqué you know he’s gonna come clean
Think what he say,
Say what he means
Maybe on Monday, he got something to say

Maybe he could talk about the tricks of the trade
Maybe he could talk about himself
Maybe he could talk about the money that he made
Maybe he’d be saying something else

But in the communiqué you know he’s gonna come clean
Think what he say,
Say what he means
Maybe on Monday, he got something to say

And now the rumors are flying
Speculation rising
Say that he’s been trying someone else’s wife
Somebody at the airport
Somebody on the phone
Says he’s at the station and he’s coming on the noon

Then we get the story a serious breeze
And a photograph taken in the hall
You don’t have to worry with the previous release
Right now, he’s saying nothing at all

But in the communiqué you know he’s gonna come clean
Think what he say
Say what he means
Maybe on Monday, he got something to say
