lyrics

I FELL FOR YOU, THE MAGAZINE TOLD ME TO
AND YOU JUMPED RIGHT OFF THE PAGE
LIKE YOU WERE SELLING ME AN IRONING BOARD
PULL OUT THE CHAIR, HOLD THE DOOR
AND OFFER YOUR ARM
DUMB LITTLE FISH BITING AT SPINNING SPOONS
THE SCRIPT IS SO PERFECTLY HONED
YOU ARE A PRINCE ‘TIL YOU GET ME ALONE

YOU REEL AND TUG; SINKS IN FURTHER THE MORE I THRASH
I HEAR YOU LAUGH WITH THE COP AT THE DOOR
‘I SWEAR, SHE WON’T CALL ANYMORE
WE GOT DRUNK AND I WENT OVERBOARD’
‘WELL, KEEP IT DOWN THEN, NEXT TIME, BUDDY BOY’

DADDY, THE MODEL OF COURTESY
FULL OF BILE WITH A SMILE FOR ALL TO SEE
ANYTHING GOES, ANYTHING TO SEAL THE DEAL
SHOWS HIS BELOVED THE FLAT OF HIS HAND
MOTHER IS MUM AND HAS A COUPLE MORE
SHE WON’T MAKE A PEEP
FOR FEAR OF WHAT LIES, WAITING OUTSIDE OF THE CAGE

IN THE SKYSCRAPER, THEY SHAKE TO THE PARTNERSHIP
SMILE WHILE THEY SWING THE NINE IRON AND PLAN FOR THE TAKE-OVER BID
IN THE NATURAL WORLD, THE CHAMELEON
FAKING AND FOOLING AND HIDING
HARD WIRED TO PRETEND THAT HE’S SOMETHING HE’S NOT

IN THE SKYSCRAPER, THEY SHAKE TO THE PARTNERSHIP
SMILE WHILE THEY SWING THE NINE IRON AND PLAN FOR THE TAKE-OVER BID
IN THE NATURAL WORLD, THE CHAMELEON
FAKING AND FOOLING AND HIDING
HARD WIRED TO PRETEND THAT HE’S SOMETHING HE’S NOT

THE CHAMELEON – THE CHAMELEON – THE CHAMELEON
