I didn't take no shortcuts
I spent the money that I saved up
Oh, mamma running out of luck
Well, like my sister, don't give a fuck
I wanna steal your innocence
To me my life it don't make sense
Those strange manners, oh I love 'em so
Why won't you wear your new trench coat

I shoulda worked much harder
I shoulda just not bothered
I never show up on weekdays
That's something that I learned yesterday
Drive you to work, you will be on time
These little problems they're not yours and mine
Come on and listen to what I say
I've got some secrets that'll make you stay

I just want to turn you down
I just want to turn you around
Oh, you ain't never had nothing I want, but
I want it all, I just can't figure out
Nothin'

And all together it went well
We may pretend we were best friends
Then she said "Oh you're a freak"
They ordered me to make mistakes
Together again, like the beginnin'
It all works somehow in the end
The things we did, the things you hide
But for the record it's between you and I

I didn't take no short cuts
I spent the money that I saved up
Oh, mamma running out of luck
And like my sister, don't give a fuck
I wanna steal your innocence
To me my life, it just don't make any sense
Oh, those strange manners I love 'em so
Why won't you wear your new trench coat?

I just want to misbehave
I just want to be your slave
You ain't never had nothing I wanted, but
I want it all, I just can't figure out
Nothin'

And all together it went well
We may pretend we were best friends
Then she said "Oh I can wait"
They ordered me to make mistakes
Together again, like the beginnin'
It all works somehow in the end
The things we did, the things you hide
But for the record it's between you and I
