  • Using multiple "Wizard of Oz" references I guess the singer is asking someone not to go "Home" and stay with him.
  • I’ve got a little red bow And I bought it for you ’cause I know you’re not fair I don’t get it, oh well And you color my skin And the colors don’t blend ’cause I’m gonna get you And your little dog too There’s a yellow brick road That we follow back home ’cause I know you can’t wait Your belligerent hate There’s no place like home There’s no place like home Like home I’ve, got a southern belle too And ruby red shoes And a body of straw Are you sick of it all? There’s a man made of tin With an oil can grin And I’m gonna get you And your little dog too There’s a yellow brick road That we follow back home And I know you can’t wait Your belligerent hate There’s no place like home There’s no place like home There’s a little white porch And you wanted it so And you let me go down To the end of the road And the black and the white A technicolorful life Can I stand by your side? Like home We can make it alright ’cause I’m home There’s a little white porch And you wanted it so And you let me go down To the end of the road And the black and the white A technicolorful life Then another arrived It’s a cowardly lion What I want from this world What I wanna resolve When I want you to stay So I want you to wait I don’t wanna be bold I don’t wanna be cold I don’t wanna grow old I don’t wanna grow old ============ You are right about the heavy influence of the Wizard of Oz story on the lyrics. Ithought, however, that the girl has led him to believe that they will be together and make a home. There’s a little white porch And you wanted it so And you let me go down To the end of the road But then she betrayed him: Then another arrived It’s a cowardly lion But he still wants her: I’ve got a little red bow And I bought it for you even though he's angry with her: And I’m gonna get you And your little dog too and she's cruel to him: you beligerent hate (repeated several times) and she doesn't play fair.
