You gave me a present
The paper was blue and green
I unwrapped it with pleasure
These are the best shades I've ever seen

You can be my girlfriend
Forever and a day
I never thought I was worth much
Or that anyone would treat me this way

I'm not the kind of guy
Who dresses like a king
And a really fine pair of shades
Means everythin'
And the light that blinds my eyes
Shines from you

It makes me come in the night
It makes me swim with delight
I like this pain, I like this mirror
I like these shades

I could have had a problem
I might have never followed through
The other guys are in trouble
They wouldn't listen to a girl like you

These shades say somethin'
I'll bet they cost a lot
I hope I don't break 'em
I hope we don't break up

I'm not the kind of guy
Who dresses like a king
And a really fine pair of shades
Means everythin'
And the light that blinds my eyes
Shines from you

It makes me come in the night
It makes me swim with delight
I like this pain, I like this mirror
I like these shades

It makes me come in the night
It makes me swim with delight
You are my [Incomprehensible]
Life's not a [Incomprehensible]
My life will change
[Incomprehensible] life will change
