Day after day, I will walk and I will play but the day after today, I will stop
And I will start why can't I get just one kiss there may be something’s that I wouldn't miss
But I look at your pants and I need a kiss
Why can't I get just one screw believe me I know what to do
But something won't let me make love to you
Why can't I get just one fuck guess it's got something to do with luck
But I waited my whole life for just one
Day after day I get angry and I will say that the day
Is in my sight when i’ll take a bow
And say goodnight oh my mum
Have you kept your eye, your eye on your son
I know you’ve had problems, you’re not the only one
When your sugar left, he left you on the run
Oh my mum take a look now at what your boy has done
He’s walking around like he’s number one
Went downtown and you got him a gun
Don’t shoot, shoot, shoot that thing at me
You know you’ve got my sympathy
But don’t shoot, shoot, shoot that thing at me
Going down the kitchen at the top of the stairs
Can I mix in with your affairs share a smoke, make a joke grasp
And reach for a leg of hope words to memorize,
Words hypnotize words make my mouth exercise
Words all failed the magic prize nothing I can say
When I’m in your thighs oh my my, my my mother
I would love to love you lover city is restless,
It’s ready to pounce here in your bedroom,
Ounce for ounce oh my my, my my mother
I’ve given you, decision to make
Things to lose, things to take just as she’s about ready
To cut it up she says wait a minute honey,
I’m gonna add it up. Day after day I get angry
And I will say that the day is in my sight
When i’ll take a bow and say goodnight

    General CommentThis cover is orgasmic for me. Amanda is, by far, my very favorite female artist ever, and this has to be my favorite Violent Femmes song. Pure excellence.

    Why can't I get just one fuck!?
