"Objection (Tango)" as written by and Lester A/shakira / Mendez....
It's not her fault she's so irresistible
But all the damage she's caused isn't fixable
Every twenty seconds you repeat her name
But when it comes to me you don't care
If I'm alive or dead

So objection I don't want to be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
But you don't even bother

Objection I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way I've got to get away

Next to her cheap silicon I look minimal
That's why in front of your eyes I'm invisible
But you gotta know small things also count
You better put your feet on the ground
And see what its about

Objection I don't want to be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
But you don't even bother

Objection I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way I've got to get away

I wish there was a chance for you and me
I wish you couldn't find a place to be
Away from here

This is pathetic and sardonic
Its sadistic and psychotic
Tango is not for three
Was never meant to be

But you can try it
Rehearse it
Or train like a horse
But don't you count on me
Don't you count on me boy

Objection I don't want to be the exception
To get a bit of your attention
I love you for free and I'm not your mother
But you don't even bother

Objection I'm tired of this triangle
Got dizzy dancing tango
I'm falling apart in your hands again
No way I've got to get away

get away
get away
eh, eh, eh get away
I'm falling apart in your hands again
get away
I'm falling apart in your hands again
get away

    General Commentthese lyrics are easy to figure. it's all about cheating, hence the phrase 'two to tango'. and the line "Tango is not for three" in the song.

    General CommentActually, the lyrics are.... "I love you for free and I'm not your mother." instead of "Love is for free and I'm not your mother." :)

    General CommentAwesome song! The first time I ever heard it, I thought 'what the hell..?' cause it sounded like a cross between polka and surfer music (to me anyways..). Now I love it. My favorite part is when she goes into the 'This is pathetic and sardonic..' part. =)
