Cream and sugar pie to watch a friend down
Bring the ship about to watch a friend drown
Cream and sugar pie to watch a friend dress.
We just turned around to watch a friend drown.
Man overboard, try and save me.
Left you in the bar to try and save face.
Put on your gay face.
Put on your game face.
There's so much more that I want in a man
There's so much more that I wanted, and
Ralph Nader, see you around
Yeah later, see you around
Young lady, see you around.
Yeah later, see you around.
We catch Depends
On your to-do list
But in the end
They're f***ing useless.
We can't depend
On your excuses
'Cause in the end
It's f***ing useless.
You can only leave a n***** so long.
You can only lean on me for so long.
