Everybody’s looking over your shoulder
Seems they can’t wait to hear what’s next
Everybody’s saying she’s lookin’ older
Could it be there is a cruel subtext to

All this endless adulation
All this reckless infatuation and

I will stay with you tonight in
Case this corset gets too tight and
I will keep you company cause
That’s what a sister should be

So they said it was the year of the woman
I believe it was the year of sex
Maybe this’ll be the year of the human
Maybe that would be a bit complex for

All these endless aberrations
From meaningful expectations and

I will stay with you tonight in
Case this corset gets too tight and
I will keep you company cause
That’s what a sister should be

Everybody’s lookin’ under your mattress
Seems they cant wait to find that pea
Maybe you were never quite the princess
Everybody was afraid you’d be and

All these endless presentations
Must affect your concentration so

I will stay with you tonight in
Case this corset gets too tight and
I will keep you company cause
That’s what a sister should be
