Hey now, bitch, now, baby
You better make your face
Get out of here, quick
Maybe your, was getting, ah, too rich

It aint like we aint
Never seen this thing before
And if it turns you, then around
Then you better hit the door

But I know, oh
Its just a temporary thing
Oh yeah, its just a temporary thing

Youve read too many books
Youve seen too many plays
And if things like this turn you away
Hey, now, now, look

Huh, look, hey look, hey look
You better think about it twice
I know that your good breeding
Makes it seem not so nice

Its just a temporary thing
Ah ha, ah ha, ah ha
Its just a temporary thing

Wheres the number, wheres the dime
And wheres the phone
I feel like a stranger
I guess you wanna go back home

Your mother, your father, your brother
I guess they wouldnt agree with me
But I dont give two shits
Theyre no better than me

Ah ha, its just a temporary thing
Oh yeah, been there before just a temporary thing
Its just a temporary thing
Ah bitch, get off my kids, temporary thing

Get out, its just a temporary thing
Yeah now, home, its just a temporary thing
Temporary thing, huh, ah ha ha
Its just a temporary thing

Uh, ah uh, its just a temporary thing
Its just a temporary thing
Its just a temporary thing
Its just a temporary thing
