  • Damn, what drugs aren't you on?
    And can I come along?
    You're wasted and stoned when
    I am sober as a marble
    I think I love you are horrible
    I think I love you are horrible

    You can't, by my, girl
    You can't, by my, girl
    You can't, by my, girl

    Fishing for your lipstick
    You found your cigarettes
    You're hacking up the wrapping
    As we sit on rotten steps

    You're crazy and you show it off
    Dear, you're slurring Gorbachev
    But you insist on discussing him
    You're so wrong but somehow you win
    So wrong to kiss you when

    You can't, by my, girl
    You can't, by my, girl
    You can't, by my, girl

    You're sweet but you're messed up
    Your best friend is a red cup
    You're obviously not the one
    But you remind me life can be fun

    Yeah, yeah, yeah,
    Yeah, yeah, yeah,
    Yeah

    You can't, by my, girl
    You can't, by my, girl
    You can't, by my, girl Writer/s: DARWIN MERWAN SMITH
