Ballroom poise, the girls
Are dressing their intent to get a taste for keeping pace
The speaker lifts his glass to dearest friends that will not last

They drink the pearls

There's an etiquette to always faking it
With the straightest of faces
It's all about the way you present yourself
With the straightest of faces

Novelty, novelty
Gleaming lipstick, chain and gag
Show your teeth if you can bite it back
(Bite it back)
Skin grafts of all your mistresses,
It's such an exhibition, oh
You're in when you're invited back
(Invited back)

There's an etiquette to always faking it
With the straightest of faces
It's all about the way you present yourself
With the straightest of faces

And I'll stay at home

And I'll stay at home
(And I'll stay at home)

And I'll stay at home
(And I'll stay at home)
And I'll stay at home

And I'll stay at home
(And I'll stay at home)
And I'll stay at home

There's an etiquette to always faking it
(And I'll stay at home)
(And I'll stay at home)
With the straightest of faces
(And I'll stay at home)
(And I'll stay at home)
It's all about the way you present yourself
(And I'll stay at home)
(And I'll stay at home)
With the straightest of faces
(And I'll stay at home)
(And I'll stay at home)
