So your grandmother sounds to me
A woman I would be proud to be
And you say she reminds you of me
Every little boy is so naive, oh

I will not be a victim of romance

Or any man who can get his dirty little hands on me

Or any man who can get his dirty little hands on me
Oh

When we were in love
(If we were)
When we were in love
I was an Eagle
And you were a Dove

When we were in love
(If we were)
When we were in love
You were a Dove
And I rose above you and preyed
