Day after day
I will walk, and I will play
But the day, after today
I will stop, and I will start

Why can't I get just one kiss?
Why can't I get just one kiss?
Believe me somethings I wouldn't miss
But I look at your pants and I need a kiss

Why can't I get just one screw?
Why can't I get just one screw?
Believe me, I'd know what to do
But something won't let me make love to you

Why can't I get just one fuck?
Why can't I get just one fuck?
I guess it's got something to do with luck
But I've waited my whole life for just one

Day after day
I get angry and I will say
That the day is in my sight
When I take a bow and say goodnight

Oh my my my my my oh my mum
Have you kept your eye, your eye on your son?
I know you've had problems, you're not the only one
When your sugar left, he left you on the run

So my my my my my mo my mum
Take a look now look what your boy has done
He's walking around like he's number one
You went downtown and got him a gun

Don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
Don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
You know, you got my sympathy
But don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me

Don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
Don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
You know, you got my sympathy
But don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me

Broken down kitchen at the top of the stairs
Can I mix in with your affairs?
Share a smoke, make a joke
You got to grasp and reach for a leg of hope

Words to memorize, words hypnotize
Words make my mouth exercise
Words all fail the magic prize
Nothing I can say when I'm in your thighs

Oh my my my my my mo my mother
I would love to love you lover
City's restless, it's ready to pounce
Here in your bed from ounce to ounce

Sayin' oh my my my my my mo my mother
I would love to love you lover
The city's restless it's ready to pounce
Here in your bed from ounce to ounce

I've given you a decision to make
Things to lose, things to take
Just as she's about ready to cut it up
She says, "Wait a minute honey I'm gonna add it up"

Add it up, add it up, add it up, add it up
Add it up, add it up, add it up, add it up

Day after day
I get angry and I will say
That the day is in my sight
When I take a bow and say goodnight, good night
