We think about making a score
We think about a little bit more
While you suffer our selfish ways
While I look at your elfish face
Oh we can't think of anything else
So you suffer us alone on your shelf
While you whisper your selfless praise
While you suffer our selfish ways

Oh, I'm sorry but we've gotta breathe
And I know it's not easy
Through all of these days
You chose my selfish ways
Oh I know I'm not so sure
And I might not be so pure
But through all of these days
You suffer my selfish ways
And you love it!

Darling, I'll bring you fire wood
But I will burn your house down
(And I will follow him, I'll take his word away)
Darling, I'll bring you fire wood
But I will burn your house down
(And I will follow him) Down (I'll take his word away)

We think about making a score
And we think about a little bit more
While you suffer our selfish ways
While I look at your elfish face
Oh we can't think of anything else
So you suffer us alone on the shelf
And I'd be better, I'd be better
I'd be better if you let go of my tether
But you never

Oh, my darling, I'll bring you fire wood
But I will burn your house down
(And I will follow him) Down (I'll take his word away)
Darling, I'll bring you fire wood
But I will burn your house down
(And I will follow him) Down (I'll take his word away)

To the ground

Oh I'm sorry
I really am
If I cut your heart to ribbons
I'm not really that kind of man
But you love it!

Oh, my darling, I'll bring you fire wood
But I will burn your house down
(And I will burn it) Down (I'll take his word away)
Darling, I'll bring you fire wood
But I will burn your house down
(And I will follow him) Down (I'll take his word away)
