[Brett's voice narrating]
Dear Jermaine, by the time you read this, I will be far, far away, at Coco's house, and I will no longer be residing--

And that is just one of the reasons why I'm moving out. You didn't seem to understand th--

And the most important thing for me to say is that--

Do you remember that time that seagull--

Yours sincerely, Brett.

[Jermaine]
Lives are like retractable pencils
If you push them too hard theyre gonna break
And people are like paper dolls
Paper dolls and people, theyre a similar shape
Hmm hmm hm hmm

[Brett]
Love is like a roll of tape
Its real good for making two things one

[Jermaine]
But just like the roll of tape
Love sometimes breaks off before you were done

[Brett]
Another way that love is similar to tape
That Ive noticed
Is sometimes its hard to see the end

[Together]
You search on the roll (search on the roll)
Search on the roll (searching round the roll)
Search on the roll (search)

[Together]
With your finger nail
Again and again
And again and again

[Jermaine]
And again...

[Brett]
Whoa, whoa

[Together]
Brown paper, white paper
Stickin' together with the tape
The tape of love
The sticky stuff

[Jermaine]
Brett.

[Brett]
Hey man. What are you doing here?

[Jermaine]
Mary and I miss you and we want you to rejoin the band again.

[Brett]
Really?

[Jermaine]
Yeah, on one condition. That you...

[Brett]
I'm not gonna kill her man.

[Jermaine]
No, just leave-- just leave her, not--

[Brett]
Oh no I'm not gonna leave her, I told you that. You know, I like the band, but no I'm not leaving Coco.

[Coco]
I wouldn't mind. I mean if that's what you really wa--

[Brett]
Shush, baby.

[Coco]
I don't-- I don't really see us as a long term--

[Brett]
Shush.

[Jermaine]
So what's it gonna be man? The girl or the band?

[Brett]
Well it's gonna be Coco.

[Jermaine]
Oh. Are you sure?

[Brett]
Yeah.

[Jermaine]
Oh I thought you... I was sure you were gonna say the band.

[Brett]
No I'm staying with Coco.

[Jermaine]
I guess you can still be in the band

[Brett]
Okay.

[Jermaine]
Okay. Okay well I'll see you later. Actually I'm gonna wait til the bus stops, and then... get off.

[Together]
Brown paper, white paper
Stickin' together with the tape
The tape of love
The sticky stuff

[Jermaine]
Oooh hoo

People people
Paper paper
Paper paper
People people
People people
Pencil Pencil
Paper paper
Put the pencil to the paper
Give the paper to the people
Let the people read about the sello tape
Oh baby baby yeah

[Brett]
You know, Jermaine, Ive been thinking about love. And I guess its the very strongest adhesive.

[Jermaine]
Oh sorry, Bret. Were you talking to me? I was humming. What did you say?

[Brett]
No, doesn't matter.

[Together]
Brown paper, white paper
Stickin' together with the tape
The tape of love
The sticky stuff
Yeah
Ooh brown

Brown paper, white paper
Stickin' together with the tape
The tape of love

Stick
Stickin' together
Stick stick stickin' together
Yeah yeah
