I didn't take no shortcuts
Aw mama runnin' out of luck

To me my life it don't make sense
Why won't you wear your new trench coat
I should've worked much harder
I never show up on weekdays

Your little problems, they're not yours they're mine
I've got some secrets that'll make you stay
I just want to turn you down
You ain't never had nothin' I wanted but
Nothin'
And all together it went well
Then she said "Oh you're a freak"

It all works somehow in the end
But for the record it's between you and I
I didn't take no shortcuts
Aw mama runnin' out of luck

To me my life it just don't make any sense
Why won't you wear your new trench coat
I just want to misbehave
You ain't never had nothin' I wanted but
Nothin'
And all together it went well
Then she said "Oh I can wait"

It all works somehow in the end
But for the record it's between you and I
