Last night I dreamt you were gay
It was all you needed to say
Finally an answer for why you don't want me that way

Last year I slept in your arms
And slept right through the alarm
Now you live in Virginia alone on a farm

Boys will be boys
Boys will be boys
Girls can't avoid pretty boys

Last July I came untied
My trousers, my bra, and my pride
You were so confident that I would let you inside

Back of the bus in Berlin
That was the summer of sin
Brian and Ritchie pounding a bottle of gin
Liars and lovers
Twin brothers never win

Boys will be boys
Boys will be boys
Girls can't avoid pretty boys
No, girls can't avoid pretty boys

    General CommentAugust 1997 Veruca Salt and Foo Fighters both in Europe all Month.
    "Summer of Sin"
    Everyone says that Taylor Hawkins is Dave's younger twin.
    Brian Richie was in the "Violent Femmes" so this is a reference to Dave & Taylor and goes along with the "gay" reference at the start of the song and the twins reference.
