Blue-, blue-, blue-eyed
Scruffy fella–
Helicopters buzzed against
Our cheeks and ears and necks and
Turned us all around
In terms of color:
Blushing, queasy, spinning
And irrevocably endearing
Drinking fountains, puppies, penguins,
Little lambs…

Don’t you dare go
Making me like you more;
I hate you more and more
Every second I’m with you;
Every second you’re making me like you
More and more,
I hate you more
I hate you more.

Firecrackers have no choice:
The fuse gets lit,
The voice comes shooting out
In sparks and sparkles–
And a minute
Lasts a lifetime,
Lasts a heartbeat,
Never lasts for sixty seconds
Like it should–
And no matter what
It’s never long enough–
But it’s still good.

True, true, true, I would
Be your boyfriend
If you’d be mine,
But this whole situation is
Becoming so ridiculous–
Mr. Potato Heart–
Indeed, it seems
You lack a few essential pieces;
Would it be taboo for me
To skip-bo right past go,
Play operation and connect for good
The clues to cure this sorry state of
Constant aggravation?

Don’t you dare go
Pushing my love away
If you’re gonna just
Pick up the slack and
Pull it right back
In a stupid kind of tug-of-war game
That I don’t wanna play–
Unless I’m on your side,
In which case
I’ll be with you all the way.

Firecrackers have no choice:
The fuse gets lit,
The voice comes shooting out
In sparks and sparkles–
And a minute
Lasts a lifetime,
Lasts a heartbeat,
Never lasts for sixty seconds
Like it should–
And no matter what
It’s never long enough–

I could go a day without you
I could go a hundred days
But I’d spread those hundred days
Out over a century
If that’s okay with you
Sometimes I get the feeling
I’m just on display–
Like some little punk’s been
Pressing against me,
Setting me off for a
Pyrotechnicolorful

Don’t you dare go
Don’t you dare go
Don’t you dare go
Don’t you dare go
Don’t you dare go
Don’t you dare go
Setting me off and
Running away
When I’ve got something
I still want to say…
Again!

Firecrackers have no choice:
The fuse gets lit,
The voice comes shooting out
In sparks and sparkles–
And a minute
Lasts a lifetime,
Lasts a heartbeat,
Never lasts for sixty seconds
Like it should–
And no matter what
It’s never long enough–
And no matter what–
It’s never long enough–
But it’s still so
oh oh oh-oh-oh
good!
