  • Your private life drama baby leave me out
    (repeat 3 times)
    J'ai les glands with your theatrics
    Your acting's a drag
    It's o.k. on TV 'cause you can turn it off
    But don't try me
    Yes your marriage is a tragedy
    But it's not my concern
    I'm very superficial I hate anything official

    Your private life drama baby leave me out
    (repeat 3 times)
    (backup chorus)
    You've been lying to someone and now me
    (repeat 3 times)

    Your sentimental gestures only bore me to death
    You've made a desperate appeal now save your breath
    Attachment to obligation through guilt and regret
    Shit that's so wet
    And your sex life complications are not my fascinations


    You asked me for advice I said use the door
    But you're still clinging to somebody you deplore
    And now you want to use me for emotional blackmail
    I just feel pity when you lie, contempt when you cry
