It's too good
It's too nice
She makes me finish too quick
Is it love?
No not love
She turns my sexual trick
She says she's mine, I know she lies
First, I scream, then I cry.
Take a second of me
You beckon, I'll be
She suffocates me
She suffocates me with suggestion
I asked 'do you feel the same?'
And later on, maybe
I'll tell you my real name
She's so good, she's so bad
You understand, I can't stand
Now I could just kill a Man
She's on her knees, I say please
I caress her silly lies, she's got brown eyes
I think ahead of you, I think instead of you
Will you spend your life with me
And stifle me?
I know why the caged bird sings, I know why

Forgive and you're forgiven
Kingdom come
Can you wait for yours, I need to taste some
Life's pretty funny, I laugh while she spends my money
She's my freak
I guess I'm weak
You ask what is this?
Mind your business
I pass my idle days with my idle ways
'til the twelfth of always
She walks my hallways
I keep her warm, but we never kiss
She cuts my slender wrists
Let's waste some more time
I sign the dotted line
A different level
She-devil

You ask what is this?
Mind your business
I pass my idle days with my idle ways
Til the twelfth of always
She walks my hallways
I keep her warm but we never kiss
She says I'm weak and immature
But it's cool
I know what money's for.
Push comes to shove, her tongue's her favorite weapon on attack
I slap her back, she mostly hates me.

Can I take off your clothes
Before we go out
And when you're helpless, I'll scream and shout
We finish everyday
(well, anyway)
Sixty-nine degrees
My head's between your knees.
