Now you want to know the reason
Why I cheated on you
Well I had to be a hunter again
This little man had to try

To make love feel new again
'Cause there's just a few things honey
I'm not old enough to do for you
You just never care to show me

Showed him how to tango
And when they tangoed it'd send their hearts a flutter
Young and tender
Seemed to surrender in so sweet surrender
