You better think of something quick!
Before I don't love you no more.
Quick! before I walk out that door
Quick! before it all ends in tears
What a waste of all those beers
You better think of something quick!
Because my suitcase is packed
Quick! because I'm through being attacked
Are you really prepared to lose
All this just to air your views?
We're on the brink of something
Get me a drink of something
Between your outrageous remarks
Like the mating calls of sarcastic sharks
Quick! before you can't take that back
Just before it all goes black.
You better think of something quick before
The midnight bell chimes
You're living in dangerous times.
Torture me for your amusement
Ah but who will pay the rent?
Who will pay the rent?
