Pretty Persuasion
Originally recorded R.E.M. on their Reckoning LP.
Etc. 2xLP/CD, Surprise Your Pig: A Tribute to R.E.M. compilation LP/CD/bonus 7"

It's what I want.
Hurried and buy.
All has been tried. Follow reason buy.

Cannot shuffle in this heat.
It's all wrong.
Try to put that on your sleeve.
It's all wrong.

He's got a pretty persuasion.
She's got pretty persuasion.
God damn, pure confusion.
He's got a pretty persuasion.

It's what I want.
Hurry and buy.
All has been tried.
Follow reasoning.

And I put that in this heat.
It's all wrong.
Try to wear that on my sleeve.

In the light, I saw quite a scene there.



Note: The lyrics above pertain to the REM version. Blake's version of the lyrics are close but somewhat different; they probably represent the way that Blake heard Stipes's words, since REM didn't include a lyric sheet in the Reckoning LP. I'll transcribe them someday.
