I didn't take no shortcuts
I spent the money that I saved up
Aw mama runnin' out of luck
Well like my sister don't give a ****

I want to steal your innocence
To me my life it don't make sense
Your strange manners, I love you so
Why won't you wear your new trench coat

I should've worked much harder
I should have just not bothered
I never show up on weekdays
Somethin' that you learned yesterday
