Lyrics:

Verse 1:
She said “I am Rosie” I said “I thought you were Lucy”
She said “No Rosie I told you so”
Was here with you sister but she was gone when I got back
I was up dancin for fun y’know
Of all the shitty little places I meet you it’s here
And now I’m freaking out
I heard you got a brand new name selling E’s in the dark
But hey it’s nothing to shout about

Bridge:
Don’t just say yes to tease me
Do your up most to please me
I don’t mean to be sleazy
Being you can’t be easy

Chorus:
When you’re creepin' up the backstairs
Mother’s nightmares
Falling in the front door, my, my
Climbing in the window
Get dressed let’s go
Take your brother’s car keys, bye, bye

Verse 2:
Well I see your yellow fingers and your crucifix bones
All covered in cellophane
Was there when yer best friend said “sweetheart”
I’m just here to get drunk again
I wouldn’t move if I was you
I wouldn’t want to get caught when the lights go out
She said “you think you’re so special” I said
“Sunshine I’m just bored I’m just checking out”
