Lyrics


Always throw the first punch
or he'll knock you off your feet
don't believe that he's so sorry
in his bathrobe made of fleece
He's winding up a wrist watch
that always tells the same time
can't you see he's going nowhere
and he'll keep you at ringside

Don't stay down, get up girl
why just sleep away the day
don't play dead get out of bed
I'll carry you away
His talk like love
his kiss like porno
he is not the man for you
you'd be so much better off without him

All his vows of true love
sound like laughter out of court
your long hair flowed like a bridal train
until he'll cut it short
After he has finished
with what he wants you for
without strength left you'll surrender
another little war

Don't stay down, get up girl
why just sleep away the day
don't play dead get out of bed
I'll carry you away
His talk like love
his kiss like porno
he is not the man for you
you'd be so much better off without him

If he's the man in all your dreams
it's time to wake from love's long sleep

He's got it in his thick head
he could recreate your life
if you stick around here long enough
your kids will have his eyes
I'm knocking at your front door
throwing pebbles at your screen
I would do nothing to hurt you
I wanna see or to be seen

Don't stay down, get up girl
why just sleep away the day
don't play dead get out of bed
I'll carry you away
His talk like love
his kiss like porno
he is not the man for you
you'd be so much better off without him
