Hi! Nice to see you
C'mon in, c'mon in
Sorry the place is a mess

Need an ashtray?
Drink some coffee, some coffee
I know you've been upset. What I mean is...

Maybe a part of your problem is simply, you were teased
I know what you'd like
but the good stuff promised
Is hard fought and not for free

Get tough, don't be so patient
Get smart, head up, shoulders straight
Since when is it a disaster?
If the "S" on your cape is a little frayed?

What's a girl to do?
Born to shop? No! Pretty victories
What's a girl to do?
Scream &. screw? No! Pretty victories

Go out jumpin' with your dumplin'; your dumplin',
Go wheelin' with your pet

Never worry even a bit, just a bit
If there're any good ones left...use your credit

At the boybank, the boybank if those you've
bounced, you've broke

Spit out the F-word, like a shotgun
A shot gun, if they can't take a Joke!

Get tough, don't be so patient
Get smart, head up, shoulders straight
Since when is it a disaster?
If the "S" on your cape is a little frayed?

Starting to see what I mean?

Nice things
Nice things
Oh oh oh
So many nice things
As your biggest fan
I want you to have them

Nice things
Nice things
Oh oh oh
So many nice things

Don't mean nothing, if they're dumping
Things that sting on you!
Don't take that, honey.

Don't work your buns off, for a fool, for a fool
Who can barely tie his shoes

Don't answer phone calla, that old boyfriend Old boy friend
who'd love to see you lose
(You don't need that!)

When your girlfriend, your girlfriend, falls
For all those creeps

Can you tell her? Take the cure,
Take the cure, love is obsolete? (Maybe)

Starting to see what I mean'?
Sure, stop by anytime
Will yesterday be better?
I think you'll do just fine!
