  • Go on and wring my neck
    Like when a rag gets wet
    A little discipline
    For my pet genius

    My head is like a lettuce
    Go on and dig your thumbs in
    I cannot stop giving
    I'm thirty-something

    Sense of security
    Like pockets jingling
    Midlife crisis
    Suck ingenuity

    Down through the family tree
    You're perfect, yes, it's true
    But without me you're only you
    Your menstruating heart
    It ain't bleedin' enough for two

    It's a midlife crisis
    It's a midlife crisis
    What an inheritance
    The salt and the kleenex

    Morbid self attention
    Bending my pinky back
    A little discipline
    A donor by habit

    A little discipline
    Rent an opinion
    Sense of security
    Holding blunt instrument

    Midlife crisis
    I'm a perfectionist
    And perfect is a skinned knee
    You're perfect, yes, it's true
    But without me you're only you

    Your menstruating heart
    It ain't bleeding enough for two

    (Yeah)

    It's a midlife crisis
    It's a midlife crisis

    You're perfect, yes, it's true (go on and wring my neck)
    (Like when a rag gets wet) but without me you're only you (go on and wring my neck)
    Your menstruating heart (go on and wring my neck)
    (Like when a rag gets wet) it ain't bleedin' enough for two

    You're perfect, yes, it's true (go on and wring my neck)
    (Like when a rag gets wet) but without me you're only you (go on and wring my neck) (you're only you)
    Your menstruating heart (go on and wring my neck)
    (Like when a rag gets wet) it ain't bleedin' enough for two

    You're perfect, yes, it's true (go on and wring my neck)
    (Like when a rag gets wet) but without me you're only you (go on and wring my neck) (you're only you)
    Your menstruating heart (go on and wring my neck)
    (Like when a rag gets wet) it ain't bleedin' enough for two

    You're perfect, yes, it's true (go on and wring my neck)
    (Like when a rag gets wet) but without me you're only you (go on and wring my neck)

    Your menstruating heart (go on and wring my neck)
    (Like when a rag gets wet) it ain't bleedin' enough for two Writer/s: MICHAEL ANDREW BORDIN, RODDY CHRISTOPHER BOTTUM, BILL GOULD, JIM B. MARTIN, MICHAEL ALLEN PATTON
