"Little Goody Two Shoes" as written by and Elvis Costello....
You can take a powder, you can take a drink
You can keep the shrink and the kitchen sink
You can write my name in heaven in invisible ink
Just leave a feeling when there's no time to think

Little goody two shoes is here to clinch
You can miss by a mile or you can miss by an inch
Don't move a muscle, baby, don't even flinch
Or little goody two shoes will feel the pinch

You can tear me under, you can give me lip
You can tear me over, you can give me the slip
You can take off everything or tear me off a strip
With a bullet in the chamber and another in the clip

Little goody two shoes is here to clinch
You can miss by a mile or you can miss by an inch
Don't move a muscle, baby, don't even flinch
Or little goody two shoes will feel the pinch

Just when you thought you got what you deserved
Just when it's time to stop trying
A voice says, "Boy, have you got a nerve
Why do you have to keep crying and crying?"

You can take me outside, you can take me apart
You can take me upstairs, you can take me to heart
You can take the decision that it's time to depart
Don't try to stop me when you told me to start

Little goody two shoes is here to clinch
You can miss by a mile or you can miss by an inch
Don't move a muscle, baby, don't even flinch
Or little goody two shoes will feel the pinch
