You think we look pretty good together

I look pretty tall but my heels are high
I look pretty young, but I'm just back-dated, yeah
(Substitute) your lies for fact
(Substitute) I look all white, but my dad was black

The north side of my town faced east, and the east was facing south
Those crocodile tears are what you cry
To work it out at all you just pass it by, pass it by
(Substitute) me for him
(Substitute) you for my mum

I look pretty tall but my heels are high
I look pretty young, but I'm just back-dated, yeah
I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
And now you dare to look me in the eye
It's a genuine problem, you won't try

(Substitute) my coke for gin
(Substitute) at least I'll get my washing done
(Substitute) your lies for fact
(Substitute) I look all white, but my dad was black
