Tell me what you want
Tell me what you want
Tell me, tell me what you want

She's the one, never gets what she wanted
She's the one, doesn't get what she does have
She's got a daughter with the eyes of a genius
She's got a mother, don't matter, it's where it all breaks down
Where it all breaks down

Mommy dearest, caught in Vegas, she's a fright fiend
Overrated and refined, she's a dope fiend
No one said they wonder why she's a bad dream
Someone wake me up, it's hot, it's hell here

I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
Take me to the desert where air is clear
I'd rather hang out on the strip when the cokehead clears
Than take an order from the killer, your atmosphere is rotten

You may want me
But I don't want you back

She's a tramp, kind of lean, leaves a bad taste
After hours, prop her up, she's in another place
???
Wanna get there faster, but she can't come down
But she can't come down (Hey)

I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
Take me to the desert where air is clear
I'd rather hang out on the strip when the cokehead clears
Than take an order from the killer, your atmosphere is rotten

You may want me
But I don't want you back

You may need me
But I don't need you back

You may love me
But I don't love you back

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you want
Tell me, tell me what you want

I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
Take me to the place where air is clear
I'd rather hang out on the strip when the cokehead clears
Than take an order from the killer, your atmosphere is poison

I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
Take me to the desert where air is clear
I'd rather hang out on the strip when the cokehead clears
Than be a traitor to my gender, I'm outta here

Smoke and mirrors

    General CommentThese are the correct lyrics to the song:

    Tell me what you wanted
    Tell me what you wanted
    Tell me, tell me

    She's the one never gets what she wanted
    She's the one doesn't get what she does have
    Got a daughter with the eyes of a genius
    Who's got a mother, don't matter
    That's where it all breaks down

    Mommy dearest, kinda Vegas, she's a freak scene
    Over-rated, unrefined, she's a dope fiend
    No one stays, wonder why, she's a bad dream
    Someone wake me up it's hot as hell here

    I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
    Take me to the desert where air is clear
    I'd rather hang out on the strip with the cokehead queers
    Then take an order from a killer
    Your atmosphere is rotten
    You may want me but I don't want you back

    She's a drag, kind of lame, leaves a bad taste
    After hours prop her up, she's in outer space
    Get some balls, be a pro, be a man
    Wanna get there faster but she can't come down

    Hey, I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
    Take me to the desert where air is clear
    I'd rather hang out on the strip with the cokehead queers
    Then take a lesson from a loser
    Your atmosphere is rotten
    You may want me but I don't want you back
    You may need me but I don't need you back
    You may love me but I don't love you back

    Tell me what you wanted
    Tell me what you wanted
    Tell me what you wanted
    Tell me, tell me

    I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
    Take me to the place where the coast is clear
    I'd rather hang out on the strip with the cokehead queers
    Then take an order from a killer
    Your atmosphere is poison

    I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
    Take me to the desert where air is clear
    I'd rather hang out on the strip with the cokehead queers
    Then be a traitor to my gender
    I'm outta here

    Oh oh oh, smoke and mirrors
