lyrics

It was all a dream, I woke up screaming in a Yellow Submarine
Underwater where treasured daughters slowly turn to drama queens
I’m feeling seasick in the mainstream, I need some Dramamine
I’m here to make a scene, know what I mean?

I’m dressed up to the nenes, I mean the nines
"Love is What I Got", so call me Sublime
I feel like INXS, I must confess, you’re "One of My Kind"
And I must be out of my mind to tangle with this madamoiselle
Now it’s a one night standoff in a Vegas hotel

She was at the bar doing Jager bombs the size of the Death Star
And I’m an urchin, soul-searching through the swamps of Dagobah
I thought that I was bulletproof, my heart was made of Kevlar
But now I’m flying like Tracy Chapman in a Fast Car, Nascar

Her guard up like the Kremlin, window shopping, never buying
Notches in her bedpost like Gremlins, yeah they’re steady multiplying
It’s alright, ma, I’m only sighing, ain’t no crying though
I’m Lion-O, I wanna hear the Thundercats say “ho!”

I want next year’s model in last year’s bottle
Be careful what you wish because it’s coming full throttle
These old heartaches become new mistakes
These new mistakes become little earthquakes
She was the Princess Bride, I can’t hide the pain
I’m like Prince, yeah she left me standing in the Purple Rain
I gotta whole lotta love, now it’s falling from the sky
This is what it sounds like when doves lie

I saw your face last night on the radio
I saw your face last night on the radio

Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of love
In a melancholy Maserati with somebody to shove
I wasn’t smoking and drinking, yeah I was too busy thinking
About how the truth can kill like John Wilkes Booth did Lincoln

This ship is sinking, ran aground into a bank of sand
I feel like Ron Burgundy, yeah I need an anchor, man
Cause if you’re just a talker, yeah then I don’t even bother
It’s like Skywalker on Maury Povich, saying
“Darth, you are not the father”

She stole my heart, now there’s a hole in my soul
I guess the blues had a baby and they called it rock n’ roll
This ain’t Maybach music, this is payback music and I use it
If you choose it, love is like a bomb, defuse it, don’t abuse it

Cause you’ll lose it, I’m just trying to be the beast, I mean the best
The one who flew over the cuckoo’s nest, I won’t settle for less
This is the Genesis of bliss, an Invisible Touch
I’m the Incredible Hulk and you’re my latest gamma crush

I want next year’s model in last year’s bottle
Be careful what you wish because it’s coming full throttle
These old heartaches become new mistakes
These new mistakes become Alabama Shakes
She was the Princess Bride, I can’t hide the pain
I’m like Prince, yeah she left me standing in the Purple Rain
I gotta whole lotta love, now it’s falling from the sky
This is what it sounds like when doves lie

I saw your face last night on the radio
Warp speed, Number 1, make it so
I saw your face last night on the radio
I gotta go, this radiator ‘bout to blow

Nightfall in Babylon and we’re just babbling on and on
We’re rabble rousers, singing songs like Robert Plant, we Ramble On
With our tambourynes, I mean our tambourines we'll shake the sun
Cause we're gamblers yeah we know when to talk
And we know when to run

Don’t fake it, we’re not gonna take it, Twisted Sister, Mister Mister
I’ll Take These Broken Wings and sing until you get the picture
Lloyd Dobbler, I’ll Say Anything, I’m out here on your block
With my boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boombox

I want next year’s model in last year’s bottle
Be careful what you wish because it’s coming full throttle
These old heartaches become new mistakes
These new mistakes become little earthquakes
She was the Princess Bride, I can’t hide the pain
I’m like Prince, yeah she left me standing in the Purple Rain
I gotta whole lotta love, now it’s falling from the sky
This is what it sounds like when doves lie

I want next year’s model in last year’s bottle
Be careful what you wish because it’s coming full throttle
These old heartaches become new mistakes
These new mistakes become Alabama Shakes
She was the Princess Bride, I can’t hide the pain
I’m like Prince, yeah she left me standing in the Purple Rain
I gotta whole lotta love, now it’s falling from the sky
This is what it sounds like when doves lie

I saw your face last night on the radio
I saw your face last night on the radio
I saw your face last night on the radio
I saw your face on the radio
