  • Cheers darlin'
    Here's to you and your lover boy
    Cheers darlin'
    I got years to wait around for you
    Cheers darlin'
    I've got your wedding bells in my ear
    Cheers darlin'
    You give me three cigarettes to smoke my tears away

    And I die when you mention his name
    And I lied, I should have kissed you
    When we were running in the rain

    What am I darlin'?
    A whisper in your ear?
    A piece of your cake?
    What am I, darlin?
    The boy you can fear?
    Or your biggest mistake?

    Cheers darlin'
    Here's to you and your lover man
    Cheers darlin'
    I just hang around and eat from a can
    Cheers darlin'
    I got a ribbon of green on my guitar
    Cheers darlin'
    I got a beauty queen
    To sit not very far from here

    I die when he comes around
    To take you home
    I'm too shy
    I should have kissed you when we were alone

    Hat am I darlin'?
    A whisper in your ear?
    A piece of your cake?
    What am I, darlin?
    The boy you can fear?
    Or your biggest mistake?

    Oh what am I? What am I darlin'?
    I got years to wait
