"You Only Want Me 'Cause You Want My Sister" as written by Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley....
You pulled up at the house at half past seven
In your '69 Impala, you shook hands with my father
And we stopped off at the drug store by the drive-in
For some Trojans and a six-pack, but still your eyes
Kept wandering back to her
It's always her
So let's get one thing straightened out here, sir

If you think you're seeing double, let me save you some trouble
This ain't no two-for-one bargain here mister
'Cause I'm much more than just my side
Had enough of two-timing guys who only want me
'Cause they want my sister

My eyes are just as blue as her's
My hair is just as fine, and that tattoo on her lower back's
Exactly just like mine
But if you look beneath the surface
We're as different as can be
'Cause there's just one heart that beats for you and
That heart belongs to me and not to her
It's always her
So let's get one thing straight if I'm your girl



And if tomorrow you should die my sister would not bat an eye
She doesn't even know your name
She's going with some other guy
As long as she is still around I'll always have a trace of doubt
I need to know your love is real, but how?

We're all dressed up, the flowers sure are pretty
Mother pays her last respects I look around, no one suspects that it was me
I put some Drain-O in her coffee
Now that she is underground I'll know that you're not hanging
'Round for her, not for her
Now I know your love is true for sure


It pains my heart to think of her a rotting
Stinking, maggot-infested, bloated and pus-oozing corpse that I leave her
You can't imagine just how much I miss her
But now I know you want me, not my sister
