Your havin a midlife crisis tying to get where I've been
Well if you want 'em that bad Ms.V
You can have 'em
So when you see me comin
You better back down
Cause I've been waitin to smack you around

Oh I don't hold my breath
And I don't hold my tounge
And I know that you know that I don't back down
To no one
To no one

Oh you should've stayed home
You should've known better
Yet I melt in your mouth like liquid sugar.
You thought you were gonna throw it back in my face
But tell me how do my leftovers taste

With all your plastic surgery you still think that your 20
Well honey you'll never look half good as me
It would take a lot more money
You can't keep your legs closed
Your cheap and disturbing
And you wonder why your still single and past 30.

Oh I don't hold my breath
And I don't hold my tounge
And I know that you know that I don't back down
To no one
To no one

Oh you should've stayed home
You should've known better
Yet I melt in your mouth like liquid sugar.
You thought you were gonna throw it back in my face
But tell me how do my leftovers taste

How do my leftovers taste
Tell me did you lick my plate
oooooo.
How do my leftovers taste

Oh I don't hold my breath
And I don't hold my tounge
And I know that you know that I don't back down
To no one
To no one

Oh you should've stayed home
You should've known better
Yet I melt in your mouth like liquid sugar.
You thought you were gonna throw it back in my face
But tell me how do my leftovers taste

Tell me how do my left overs taste.

    General Commentthis kinda happened to me and it's.. how i feel.. so that's why i see this as a girl talking to her old friend, but it could be just any girl that is jealous of her. she's laughing because the girl's gone after her ex.

    she tries SOOOO hard to copy the girl. it's ridiculous to think she'd care since she let the guy go!.. yet this girl still tries- the old friend does everything she can think of, but she's really desperate, so she can't keep a guy. she's the one under all the stress, frantically trying to keep up with the girl speaking, but the girl speaking doesn't give a shit about either of them and knows that she's still doin better than the old friend, especially since it's obvious in the way the girl is so jealous of her life.. and she knows she can do much better than this old bf.

    maybe that's a confusing explanation... but that's 'what this song means to me'.

    General CommentI get the vibe that this song is about a girl being challenged by the girl who is currently dating her ex. Maybe you see the two of them at a club and the girl is flossing trying to "throw it in her face", but the singer is laughing because she's had him and she doesn't want him. "Tell me how do my leftovers taste?"

    I love the part where she says "Oh I don't hold my breath, And I don't hold my tongue, And I know that you know that I don't back down , To no one" Pretty much telling the other girl that she's not someone to mess with and then she tops it off with "You should have stayed home, you should have known better".

    General CommentJust wow - probably my second favourite Porcelain and the Tramps song (first being You Want). Err yeah...pretty much what you guys all said on the explaination thing - ex-girlfriend of boy sees said boy with new girl, has an i-dont-care-you-can-have-the-bastard kind of exterior, while inside she's thinking about how does still think about boy and sarcastically asks "How do my leftovers taste?" to new girl and boy. If that makes sense ^^. Just an awesome song really in your face and like ha yeah..screw you bitch! Hehe love for the Tramps

    General CommentFrom what I've heard because I knew her and her ex-boyfriend the part

    "Your havin a midlife crisis tying to get where I've been
    Well if you want 'em that bad Ms.V
    You can have 'em"

    Is about her ex-boyfriend Snake... I forgot his real name. Opps. Anyways, her ex-boyfriend's last band Valentine. Apparently Snake and Valentine's ex-drummer Rocko or whatever his name/stage name is, left the band and joined Porcelain. Valentine was managed by this girl's mother I knew, therefore Porcelain implies Ms. V as the band and manager I believe. I know it has something to do with the member's ex-band. I'm just not entirely sure if that's the right lyrics.
