Sister, it feels like just yesterday
Sister, don't you forget my number on the door
You've got something and it's so good to see
Something wonderful that I could not be

Everybody hanging on for their lives
But you can't help them
'Cause you don't have the time

I know everyone goes
Any damn place they like
I hope this goes over well
On the toxic radio, yeah

You get taken all the time for a fool
But I don't know why
You're so gullible but I don't mind
That's not the problem

And I don't need anyone with me right now
Monday, Tuesday is my weekend
You get taken for a fool all the time
Oh, I don't know why

The loco-moments you're putting on me
I can't let you do those things when it means
It's so early I don't wanna wake up
Oh we're so lucky 'cause we never grew up

Mama, it feels like just yesterday
Mama, don't you forget my number
I don't wanna be the one to let go

I know everyone goes
Any damn place they choose
And I hope everyone well
On the toxic radio

A tourist in the ghetto, not afraid of anything
Except death, and anything else
That could maybe hurt them oh, yeah

You get taken all the time for a fool
But I don't know why
You're so gullible but I don't mind
That's not the problem

And I don't need anyone with me right now
Monday, Tuesday is my weekend
You get taken all the time for a fool
But I don't know why

You get taken all the time for a fool
But I don't know why
But I don't know why
