I'm gonna wanna see myself with someone too
Friends I don't pay are friends i never knew
So I took the chance and got some help from a few
And got a long and skinny friend to talk to
Cause I have the time and the liberty
To play with my pet sally
Please don't go away, sally please

No more lonely showers and uneaten foods
My salamander has hygiene too
And he thinks of me the way I think of you
The only next step is for him to say I do

Sally please don't go away
I won't be living in yesterday
The lonely nights
Getting beat up by gays in bar fights

    General CommentNo actually emoguy is right supprisingly. I just saw something on blink 182 on MTV2 and Tom went to his high school and stopped by the room of the teacher who always gave the most detentions and she said " I heard about that song you wrote about me" and then the back case of Buddha flashed across the screen with My Pet Sally highlighted and Tom's like "uhhh yea..."
    So hes pretty much right.
    Oh and this song is really good.

    General CommentWhat the hell does "getting beat up by gays in bar fights" (one of their best ever lines) have to do with high school? The words are self-explanatory.
