Mayhem

  • He said he didn't even hear trains let alone the few words
    The ladies maybe sayin' about him
    She freaks and tells her closest friend
    That she'll never love again
    But she'll never, no not ever
    Live without him

    Wouldn't believe it, if you seen it
    Oh, mayhem doo doo doop
    Yeah, mayhem doo doo doop
    Yeah, mayhem doo doo doop
    A lotta mayhem, woh oh oh yeah

    She said he didn't mean a thing
    So she threw her diamond ring
    Out the window of a black cab in Camden
    He couldn't take it, what she did,
    So he threw a hissy fit
    And he took it out on anyone at random

    Wouldn't believe it, if you seen it
    Oh, mayhem doo doo doop
    Yeah, mayhem doo doo doop
    Yeah, mayhem doo doo doop
    A lotta mayhem, woh oh oh yeah

    Dinning sound, lights spinning round,
    Some mother's son
    Gotta fight or got to run run run run
    Run run run run run

    Ten pints and then he starts a fight
    And he lands himself a night
    In a cell wearing gray pants and bruises
    Twelve mates bangin' on the door,
    Oh the back up vans galore
    Never saw such a street full of losers

    Wouldn't believe it, if you seen it
    Oh, mayhem doo doo doop
    Yeah, mayhem doo doo doop
    Yeah, mayhem doo doo doop
    A lotta mayhem, woh oh oh yeah

    Mayhem doo doo doop
    Yeah, mayhem doo doo doop
    A lotta mayhem doo doo doop
    A lotta mayhem oh yeah
