She's under-age and she's underweight
She comes from Wyoming
She hit New York like a farm-fresh egg
So she works on the sidewalk

He adopted her in three seconds flat
Where he found her half-alive
He is her family and in return
And she needs him so badly

We do it to each other whatever we do
It's always been the two of us doing us harm
We're all of us partners in crime
She is a buyer for Bloomingdale's
They met at the office

It's that nine-to-five gets 'em in the sack
Evenings at the health retreat
And all day long he just balls her out
But when they leave the office

And beneath her heel, he will long remain
Loves it when she takes command
Him and her, me and you
Hand in hand, arm in arm
It's the same deal every time

It's made up of those who we love so well
As we do when we're alive
Two people meet and they fix their deal
And they want the way they feel
Losing it we'd never survive
Him and her, me and you
Hand in hand, arm in arm
It's the same deal every time
