It's New Year's Eve, I'm in Glendora
I'm the only living person in Glendora
Heading east on the freeway
I left my prom dress on the bus-stop in Duarte
I switch the rules, you take advantage
You know I always like to play the victim
And would you fuck me? Because I'd fuck me
Am I your wetnap?
Freestyle walking

I cry, cry, cry, then I complain
Come back for more, do it again
I cry, cry, cry, then I complain
Come back for more, do it again

I'm on my way, I want to see you
You're in your bedroom with some dancers underneath you
I come inside, I hear the door slam
You tell me if I really loved you I'd get with them
They make me sick, you make me sicker
But I want to please you so I go and I get with her
I close my eyes, I think about me
I'm just your wetnap
Freestyle walking

I cry, cry, cry, then I complain
Come back for more, do it again
I cry, cry, cry, then I complain
Come back for more, do it again

I should find someone better for me
But Mom says we're born this way
Every time I come over to your house
You just shit on my face
And you know it, you know it
You know, you know it really freaks me out

I drove for hours on bad directions
I arrive, there's something you forgot to mention
An afterthought, straight to the tabby
"Sorry Angel, went to Reno," happy, happy
It ain't the rest, why do you Jenny?
I'm in a booth, it's almost twelve, your favorite Denny's
Another year, I need a sundae
I'm just your sidebet
Freestyle walking

I cry, cry, cry, then I complain
Come back for more, do it again
I cry, cry, cry, then I complain
Come back for more, do it again
I cry, cry, cry, then I complain
Come back for more, do it again

    General CommentSome of us are born with a sense of self-respect. But then we're taught that we're supposed to be self-sacrificing and that we're supposed to endure hardships and that that's what love really is. So, to answer your question, "The Ghost Dog," because society tells us we have to, that we're not worth better. Which is not to say that ALL women would endure abuse, but . . . That's why some women do.

    General Commenti think the part about the dancers in the room underneath you, is saying she walked in on her boyfriend with some strippers and he wanted her to join in. she says that she wants to please him so she gets with them for his pleasure. so she was probably coerced into having a threesome with him.

    General Commenthehe, this song is so great. i love the fact that it makes me feel that i'm not the only one that stays with stupid guys and totally realizes it....i just think it's so witty and so funny, and it is perfect to sing along with all the time.

    General CommentOh "The Ghost Dog", you have SO much to learn about women. Trust me, almost any woman could relate to this song. I think there's some sort of genetic defect that makes us endure endless amounts of differing levels of abuse from the men we desire.

    General CommentI met Jenny and Blake and Pierre a few days ago. Jenny is the sweetest person in the whole world and she gave me a pin that says "Somebody in Rilo Kiley loves me" and a hug and she gave me her setlist and signed it for me, AND i got pictures with her and blake and pierre. They are so awesome live. Wow.
    i miss her.

    "I'm just your wetnap"
    that is so sad
    you know wetnaps are those little things you get at KFC to wipe your hands off on...and then you just throw them away :'(
