If I could own what lovers own
I'd sell my shares in apathy tomorrow.
Your love could mend my broken bones,
Soothe a soul and plug a heart that's leaking

So please pick up, Bethanie, it's Teddy
It's not the old me it's the new me
When I grow up can ew get back together?
I declare I'm prepared to bow down and baste the turkey
I'm not selfish. Serious. Can we get back together?

I bit my tongue three times today
So cut some slack, I want you back in my arms.
Unsew my lips and haste to say
I've been couhging up blood since you left me!

I tried my best, but since you left
Been sleepless for days
I cry in my unrest, but since you left
Been counting the ways
That I could stifle hope, or cut your throat
Is that too rude for you?
Do I offend you? Should I sing something more subdued?

    Girl:
    Hello? *giggle* I got you! This is just the machine, which means, I'm not in right now. Freckles is around here somewhere, but he can’t answer the phone! He’s just a cat, you silly! Anywho, you know the drill, you leave your name and number, and I’ll get back to you! *giggle*

    Please pick up, Bethanie, it's Teddy
    It's not the old me, it's the new me
    When I grow up can we get back together?

    If I could own what lovers own
    I'd sell my shares in apathy tomorrow.
    Your love could mend my broken bones,
    Soothe a soul and plug a heart that's leaking

    So please pick up, Bethanie, it's Teddy
    It's not the old me, it's the new me
    When I grow up can we get back together?

    I declare I'm prepared to bow down and baste the turkey
    I'm not selfish. Serious. Can we get back together?

    I bit my tongue three times today
    So cut some slack, I want you back in my arms.
    Unsew my lips and haste to say
    I've been coughing up blood since you left me!

    So please pick up, Bethanie, it's Teddy
    It's not the old me, it's the new me
    When I grow up can we get back together?
    I declare I'm prepared to bow down and baste the turkey
    I'm not selfish. Serious. Can we get back together?

    I tried my best, but since you left

    Please pick up, Bethanie, it's Teddy
    It's not the old me, it's the new me
    When I grow up can we get back together?

    Girl: um...no!

    I declare I'm prepared to bow down and baste the turkey
    I'm not selfish. Serious. Can we get back together?

    Please pick up, Bethanie, it's Teddy
    It's not the old me, it's the new me
    When I grow up can we get back together?
    I declare I'm prepared to bow down and baste the turkey
    I'm not selfish. Serious. Can we get back together?
