TITLE. LYRICS

Studio version

Gutz

3, 4... Warsaw!

Don't talk to me girl, you know it's not nice
Don't laugh at murder, I won't pay the price
The facts are too high-powered, it's such a big thrill
I'd do it myself cause it makes you so ill

Blame bad things on me, whatever you do
When I come home my world is different from you
You're such a chic tart, you're really dressed up
Don't wanna talk to you, just left with your mum

Don't be a puppet, always rush you around
One just for your photo, try and tie me down
I won't tell him I talk like this all night
He must be worried cause you're sounding so trite

Respect is only normal, the way to your lives
Ever tried to sleep around, once I begged for a wife
Wouldn't have to change you, start acting that way
If we don't keep our heads alive, I'll never get a say
You know what's special, it's as black as I say
Can you see me, just ourselves, no comment, copycat!
