"Hook, Line and Sinker" as written by and Jon Brion....
It should be boredom by now
I know the tricks of the trade
But it goes on anyhow
Sometimes the answers are ready made

And I go for it every time
Just like a heavy drinker
I go for it every time
Hook, line and sinker

He descends on the room
Holier than thou and sillier
He’s gonna knock on her cocoon
And it’s gonna sound familiar

And she’ll go for it every time
Putting herself in peril
She’ll go for it every time
Lock, stock and barrel

And I’m feeling for all of the world like I’m feeling for all the world

So go and reel me in
If I am tugging the line
A hook is under my skin
Because your lure is well designed

Oh I go for it every time
Just like a heavy drinker
I go for it every time
Hook, line and sinker
