You wore a black wig
You had your collar up
I wore my dad's coat
Said it made me feel taller

You tied that ribbon
Wrapped so tight and proper
With your bright red lipstick
Wrapped around the bottle

Oh, you've been around
Yeah, you've been around long enough
I've been around
I should know better

I've been trying to find a way to say
I'm good as gone

You pull me close
Try to hold me tighter
To keep me from running
Keep me from running

You kiss me hard
You bite at my lips
To keep them buttoned
Keep them buttoned
