[Deflating sound]

MAN SPEAKING:

Hurry honey! It’s an emergency! I saw myself and don’t like what I see.

I need you to put up with me so I don’t have to change my personality.

Pump me up before I deflate! Tell me what I want to hear before it’s too late!

Tell me I’m wonderful, witty and wise. Tell me I’m better than other guys!

Tell me I’m better than the best. Tell me I’m better than all the rest!

Tell me I’m a fine specimen. Tell me I’m Superman!

[Sound of woman pumping the air pump]

WOMAN REPLYING:

Pumping up my inflatable man – Yes you are, yes you can!

Pumping up my inflatable man – Yes you are, yes you can!

I build you up ridding your insecurity. What exactly is it you do for me?

When you feel inferior, you tear me down to make yourself feel superior.

Although it’s what you pretend, you don’t really want a girlfriend.

You want a little puppy dog that’ll obey each and every word you say.

My arms are sore and my back does ache. Aren’t you tired of being a fake?

Your moods change quick as a switch. Man, you're one high maintenance bitch!

[Sound of woman pumping the air pump]

Pumping up my inflatable man – Yes you are, yes you can!

Pumping up my inflatable man – Yes you are, yes you can!

I’m pretty sure we’ve been introduced so by now you must have deduced

that I’m not a total idiot who’s willing to continue to take your shit!

You take advantage of my kindness and carelessly mistake it for weakness

It's too much to take and too little too late, and I'm no longer willing to wait.

This is not what you’ll want to hear so if this message is not perfectly clear

Darlin, let me remove all doubt. I’m telling you - get out!

[Deflating sound with sudden “POP!” then “Oops!” followed by laughter]
