I’ve been slain, I’ve been slain
damnit, just before the lay
now I don’t want you as you are,
I only want you as you were
when the lights were dark
what a shame

I’ve been slain, I’ve been slain
damnit, just before the lay
it’s not you who broke my heart,
it’s the lighting in New York
what a shame

it’s my fault for being so bold
I guess you’re only as old
as the person you’re hitting on
have you been hitting on my grandma?

I don’t want you as you are
I only want you as you were
and the lesson learned:
no one’s pretty up close

I see that look that says
your sexual fantasy
is now a crushing reality
give up now and save yourself the blow
what a shame

it’s my fault for being so bold
I guess you’re only as old
as the person you’re hitting on
have you been hitting on my grandma?

men only bother me
when they talk to me
womin only bother me
when they act like men

I don’t want you as you are
I only want you as you were
and the lesson learned:
no one’s pretty up close

I have all the sex appeal of skim milk
I must stop thinking with my uterus
what a shame
