lyrics

You know I already see
My king bee baby
And I’m hopin’
He knows I’m a hun
He can come running to
From his town
Over there.

We tested the bulwarks
I’d checked out our ID
Cuz we’re all so good
About being so smart
Bout these things
These days.

I’m so in your car
Which is funny
Cuz I’m so on the fence
Not about me in your car
Bout my ambivalence.

Don’t even try to make a fist
You look too cute
Why don’t we sell tickets
Of you and your crown
In your birthday suit
With your crown
Or no crown
Just wear that suit.

Uniting Industry
With pastime
Sorrow and affection
Sometimes we over shop
Till we reach our direction
Please pay attention.

Cuz I’m about
To leave my gloves
In this taxicab baby
And you’re about
To leave your slipper in
My mailbox.

Don’t even try to make a fist
You look too cute
Why don’t we sell tickets
Of you and your crown
In your birthday suit
With your crown
Or no crown
Just wear that suit.
(Lay)
