Lyrics:

WE WERE ALL ALONE
THEN SHE BIT MY BONE
I SAID, “LET'S SELL THE PHONE
TRY TO GET AWAY"
I KNEW SHE WASN'T HERE
SHE NAILED AT MY FEET
WET SOCKS ON THE FLOOR
BUT IT'S ALL THE SAME
LAST YEAR WE GOT SICK
DOCTORS DID THE TRICK
NOW I GOTTA USE A STICK
BUT IT'S STILL THE SAME
AND THEN I SAW YOU DRY
AS A CACTUS
ONO YOU GO HOME
