Oh, she always used to be the same
She'd be loose with a straight dark facial frame
And now the things that used to turn me off
I find endearing
And they laugh behind the trees
As she lies naked in the clearing

I adore her, but I ignore her
See, I know it won't last
As I reflect upon my past
But on severance she made no difference

There's things I won't let her know
As we're perfecting our show
I want to own her, I think I'll phone her
I can't explore her if I ignore her

And now the things that used to turn me off
I find endearing
And they laugh behind the trees
As she lies naked in the clearing

But she won't beckon is what I reckon
She may adore me but she'll ignore me
Put them on a show there, we're getting nowhere
She helps my snoring, so it never get's boring

And she always used to be the same
She'd be loose with with a straight dark facial frame
And now the things that used to turn me off
I find endearing
And they laugh behind the trees
As she lies naked in the clearing

I was awake, I overheard your speech
My ego dried and sank
Talked with your ex and we agreed
Thoughts of your sister helped us wank

I'm sure you know that I have fancied her
Since she began high school
But park here now and I will promise
I will let your engine cool
