  • Weaving down a byroad, singing the song
    That's my kind of highroll gone wrong
    My-my
    Smile at least
    You can't say no to the beauty and the beast

    Something in the night
    Something in the day
    Nothing is wrong but darling
    Something's in the way
    There's slaughter in the air
    Protest on the wind
    Someone else inside me
    Someone could get skinned, how?
    My-my
    Someone fetch a priest
    You can't say no to the beauty and the beast
    Darling

    My-my
    You can't say no to the beauty and the beast
    (weakling)
    My-my
    You can't say no to the beauty and the beast

    I wanted to believe me
    I wanted to be good
    I wanted no distractions
    Like every good boy should

    My-my
    Nothing will corrupt us
    Nothing will compete
    Thank god heaven left us
    Standing on our feet
    My-my
    Beauty and the beast
    My-my
    Just beauty and the beast
    You can't say no to the beauty and the beast
    Darling

    My-my
    My
    My-my
