This has got to die
I said, this has got to stop
This has got to lie down
With someone else on top

You can keep me pinned
It's easier to tease
But you can't paint an elephant
Quite as good as she

And she may cry like a baby
And she may drive me crazy
'Cause I, I'm lately lonely

So why'd you have to lie?
I take it I'm your crutch
The pillow in your pillow case
It's easier to touch

And when you think you're safe
You fall upon your knees
But you sit within your picture
You still forget the breeze

And she may rise if I sing you down
And she may wisely cling to the ground
'Cause I, I'm lately horny
So why would she take me horny?

What's the point of this song?
Or even singing?
You've already gone
Why am I clinging?

Well I could throw it out
And I could live without
And I could do it all for you
I could be strong
Tell me if you want me to lie
'Cause this has got to die

I said, this has got to stop
This has got to lie down, down
With someone else on top

Well, you can both keep me pinned
'Cause it's easier to tease
But you can't make me happy
Quite as good as me
Well, you know that's a lie
