I touched you once too often
Now I dont know who I am
My fingerprints were missing
When I wiped away the jam

Yes, I called my fingerprints all night
But they dont seem to care
The last time that I saw them
They were leafing through your hair

Fingerprints, fingerprints
Where are you now, my fingerprints?

Yeah, I thought Id leave this morning
So I emptied out your drawer
A hundred thousand fingerprints
They floated to the floor

You know hardly stopped to pick them up
No, you dont care what you lose
Now you dont even seem to know
Whose fingerprints are whose

Fingerprints, fingerprints
Where are you now, my fingerprints?

And now you wanna marry me
You wanna take me down the aisle
You wanna throw confetti fingerprints
You know thats not my style

Oh, sure, Id like to marry you
But I cant face the dawn
With any girl who knew me
When my fingerprints were on

Fingerprints, fingerprints
Where are you now, my fingerprints?
Fingerprints, oh fingerprints
Where are you now, my fingerprints?

Spector, Phil / Cohen, Leonard
