Lyrics
Chiquita was much too bright to be over looked that night
I was just hooked on sight - I was right in the groove
The keeper said "Watch out, Jack - once you go you won't come back
When morning comes you'll be too numb to move".
...and I said:
"Ain't nobody knows for sure
Hey now, who you tryin' to kid?
Ain't nobody knows for sure
...and what if they did?"

Polluted by just a taste, all my background gone to waste
Tore up and forced to face my own mediocrity
Careening I would not fall, kept myself at bay 'n all
Talked around it soooo conveniently.
...and I said:
"Ain't nobody knows for sure
Hey now, who you tryin' to kid?
Ain't nobody knows for sure
...and what if they did?"

Considering all the time I've spent playing it back in my mind
Sho 'nuff I crossed that line, finding her to blame
Not all of the dots connect, but somehow I do suspect
I'd have ended up here just the same.
...and I said:
"Ain't nobody knows for sure
Hey now, who you tryin' to kid?
Ain't nobody knows for sure
...and what if they did?"
