  • Checking my lipstick in your aviators
    Like a couple of cool kids, the hit paraders
    The cherry glow of your cigarette

    Don't tell me the world couldn't handle
    A good old-fashioned American scandal

    Hold me baby, hold me like you ain't mine to hold
    Ooh, kiss me baby kiss me, like you don't care who knows
    Oh love me baby love me like Kennedy and Monroe

    Lights are flashing, Main Street paparazzi
    You got them lining up to watch you want me
    Let's one up the rumors

    Hold me baby, hold me like you ain't mine to hold
    Ooh, kiss me baby kiss me, like you don't care who knows
    Oh love me baby love me like Kennedy and Monroe

    Don't tell me the world couldn't handle
    A good old-fashioned American scandal

    Hold me baby, hold me like you ain't mine to hold
    Ooh, kiss me baby kiss me, like you don't care who knows

    Hold me baby, hold me, like you ain't mine to hold
    Ooh, kiss me, baby, kiss me, like you don't care who knows
    Oh love me baby love me, like Kennedy and Monroe (don't tell me the world couldn't handle)

    Kennedy and Monroe
    (A good old-fashioned American scandal) ooh, like Kennedy and Monroe
    (Don't tell me the world couldn't handle) Kennedy and Monroe
    (A good old-fashioned American scandal)
    Don't tell me the world couldn't handle a good old-fashioned American scandal Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
