I was seven years old,
You were nineteen.
When I first saw you it was on the t.v.
We had VHS,
And all the rest
Video what's your name?
And I was obsessed

Call me crazy
Call me stupid
Call me anything you want
Don't act like you did
Fantasize when you were young

So come sixteen
again I saw you on the screen
On another (???) just doing your thing
Now I'm not a high class retail outlet
But I'd love for you to steal my heart

Winona, I'd like tuh get tuh know ya
Let's burn Saks Fifth Ave. into the ground!
(yeah!)

Seman cool, the definition of tool
He was looking for a rascal when he prosecuted you yeah
He's just pissed off
cause he can't act
Tried to make himself famous
Televised the attack

Call me crazy
Call me stupid
Call me anything you want
You know he probly stole a pack of gum when he was young
But you kept your cool
You kept calm
Even though we all knew that he was runnin the law now

I'm not a high class retail outlet
But I'd love for you to steal my heart

Winona, I'd like tuh get tuh know ya
Let's burn Saks Fifth Ave. into the ground
Winona, I'd like tuh get tuh know ya
Let's burn Saks Fifth Ave. into the ground

December twelfth, two-thousand and one
I gotta gotta ask why did you run?
If I had known I woulda been outside
With an engine runnin on a getaway ride

Winona, I'd like tuh get tuh know ya
Let's burn Saks Fifth Ave. into the ground
Winona, I'd like tuh get tuh know ya
Let's burn Saks Fifth Ave. into the ground

    General CommentI think this is right...(or close, a little closer). I'm listening to the mastered version on the full-length:

    I was seven years old,
    You were nineteen.
    When I first saw you it was on the t.v.
    We had VHS,
    And all the rest
    Video what's your name?
    And i was obsessed

    Call me crazy
    Call me stupid
    Call me anything you want
    Don't act like you did
    Fantasize when you were young

    So come sixteen
    again I saw you on the screen
    Only just cause you got caught
    just doing your thing
    Now I'm not a high class retail outlet
    But I'd love for you to steal my heart

    Winona, I'd like tuh get tuh know ya
    Let's burn Saxfield down into the ground!
    (yeah!)

    Seman cool, the definition of tool
    He was looking for a rascal when he prosecuted you yeah
    He's just pissed off
    cause he can't act
    Tried to make himself famous
    Televised the attack

    Call me crazy
    Call me stupid
    Call me anything you want
    You know he probly stole a pack of gum when he was young
    But you kept your cool
    You kept calm
    Even though we all knew that he was the one in the wrong

    I'm not a high class retail outlet
    But I'd love for you to steal my heart

    Winona, I'd like tuh get tuh know ya
    Let's burn Saxfield down into the ground
    Winona, I'd like tuh get tuh know ya
    Let's burn Saxfield down into the ground

    December twelfth, two-thousand and one
    I gotta gotta ask why did you run?
    If I had known I woulda been outside
    With an engine runnin on a getaway ride

    Winona, I'd like tuh get tuh know ya
    Let's burn Saxfield down into the ground
    Winona, I'd like tuh get tuh know ya
    Let's burn Saxfield down into the ground

    General Comment"Let's burn Saxfield down into the ground"

    it should be "Let's burn Saks Fifth Ave. into the ground"

    Saks Fifth being the store Winona shoplifted from in 2001
    [December twelfth, two-thousand and one I gotta gotta ask why did you run? ]

    General Commenta couple corrections:

    "Don't act like you did
    Fantasize when you were young"

    that should be didn't, instead of did


    "On another (???) just doing your thing "
    I sing as "only nervous cos you got caught doing your thing"

    that may be wrong, but it's my best guess...

    "He was looking for a rascal when he prosecuted you yeah"
    rascal should be oscar

    Lyric Correction"Seman cool, the definition of tool"

    seman cool should be Stephen Cooley, the los angeles district attorney.

    and just a guess, "So come sixteen
    again I saw you on the screen
    On another (???) just doing your thing
    Now I'm not a high class retail outlet
    But I'd love for you to steal my heart"

    could it be "so come sixteen/again i saw you on the screen/only this time cause you got caught doing your thing"?
