- LyricsI took the Polaroid down in my room
I'm pretty sure you have a new girlfriend
It's not as if I don't like you
It just makes me sad whenever I see it
'Coz I like to be gone most of the time
- LyricsLoose lips might sink ships
But loose gooses take trips
To San Francisco, double dutch disco
Tech TV hottie, do it for Scotty
Do it for the living and do it for the dead
- LyricsI was quiet as a mouse
When I snuck into your house
And took roofies with your spouse
In a nit and out a louse
Lice are lousy all the time
- LyricsSleep little one
Tomorrow's more fun
We'll dance in the rain
And we'll sing in the sun
I think you're the best
