Vain boys are gonna have to swallow
Their pride this time
So let the punishment fit the crime

It's under the table, under your skin
Into the cable
Is this the death of the glory you're in?

Black sails in the sunset
White noise goin' yakety-yak
All the money in the world will never bring your body back

Is it some mysterious dance nobody can do?
Thought I knew all the steps quite clearly
I don't have a clue, ooh

You're Cinderella with a ball and chain
And the shoe seems to fit you
You tell the truth sometimes but
You wouldn't know it if it hit you

Is this some new trick
Wired up in your head?
Do you make me sick
Or was I just force fed?

Black sails in the sunset
White noise goin' yakety-yak
All the money in the world will never bring your body back

Is it some mysterious dance nobody can do?
Thought I knew all the steps quite clearly
I don't have a clue, ooh

Black sails in the sunset
White noise goin' yakety-yak

Black sails in the sunset
White noise goin' yakety-yak
All the money in the world will never bring your body back
