I who took the money?
Who took the money away?
It's always showtime
Here at the edge of the stage
I, I, I wake up and wonder
What was the place, what was the name?
We wanna wait but here we go again

I takes over slowly
But doesn't last very long
I no need to worry
Everything's under control

O U T but no hard feelings
What do you know? Take you away
We're being taken for a ride again

I got a girlfriend that's better than that
She has the smoke in her eyes
She's commin' up, going right through my home
She's gonna give me surprise
I think it's right, better than this
I think you can if you like
I gotta a girlfriend with bows in her hair
Nothing is better than that, is it

Down, down in the basement
We hear the sound of machines
I, I, I'm driving in circles
Come to my senses sometimes
Why, why, why, why start it over?
Nothing was lost, everthing's free
I don't care how impossible it seems

Somebody calls you but you cannot hear
Get closer to be far away
Hey only one look and that's all that it takes
Maybe that's all that we need
All that it takes, I'll get it right
All it takes, all that it's right
I got a girlfriend that's better than that
And she goes wherever she likes there she goes

I got a girlfriend that's better than that
Now everyone's getting involved
She's moving up going right through my heart
We might not ever get caught
Going right through try to stay cool
Going through, staying cool
I got a girlfriend she's better than that
And nothing is better than you

Wait a minute
I got a girlfriend thats better than this
And you don't remember at all
As we get older and stop making sense
You won't find her waiting long
Stop making sense, stop making sense
Stop making sense, making sense
I got a girlfriend she's better than that
And nothing is better than this, is it?
