The Cost Of You


"Well, somebody told me

You" were a chicken

That laid a golden egg

And then went and sold it

So now you're really rich

Just cluckin'

__and cluckin' AROUND!!!!!


Should I mouth off


I'd be a perfect color

__to you

And you can fill my head

With your lies

As if it were a piggy bank

__for them


In my mind


Swim in thoughts

"All about you"

And I'm afraid you'll laugh

When I say "I love you"

So "I dilly dally"

'Til I'm forced to tell you

And I ask your pimp

How much do you


And I start to cry

'Cause I don't have enough
