Charlemagne shakes in the streets
Gideon makes love to the suites
And Holly's not invincible, in fact she's in the hospital
Not far from that bar where we met on that first night

Charlemagne pulls street corner scams
Gideon's got a pipe made from a Pringle's can
Holly's insatiable, she still looks incredible
But she don't look like that same girl we met on that first night

She was golden with bar light and beer
On that first night she slept like she'd never been scared

And then last night
She said words alone never could save us
And then last night
She cried and she told us about Jesus

Holly's inconsolable, unhinged and uncontrollable
'Cause we can't get as high as we got on that first night

Boys and girls in America
Boys and girls in America
Boys and girls in America
Boys and girls in America
Boys and girls in America

Don't bother talking to the guys with the hot soft eyes
(Boys and girls in America)
You know they're already taken
(Boys and girls in America)
Don't even speak to all those sequencer and beats boys
(Boys and girls in America)

When they kiss they spit white noise
(White noise)
When they kiss they spit white noise
(White noise)
When they kiss they spit white noise
(White noise)
When they kiss they spit white noise
(White noise)

When they kiss they spit white noise
(White noise)
When they kiss they spit white noise
(White noise)
When they kiss they spit white noise
(White noise)
When they kiss they spit white noise
