  • Every night I go
    Every night I go sneaking out the door
    I lie a little more
    Baby I'm a helpless

    There's something bout the night
    And the way it hides all the things I like
    Little black butterflies
    Deep inside me

    What would my mama do (uh oh uh oh)
    If she knew bout me and you (uh oh uh oh)
    What would my daddy say (uh oh uh oh)
    If he saw me hurt this way (uh oh uh oh)

    Why should I feel ashamed
    Feeling guilty at the mention of your name
    Here we are again
    Its really perfect

    What would my mama do (uh oh uh oh)
    If she knew bout me and you (uh oh uh oh)
    What would my daddy say (uh oh uh oh)
    If he saw me hurt this way (uh oh uh oh)

    All the things a girl should know
    All the things she can't control
    All the things a girl should know
    She can't control

    What would my mama do (uh oh uh oh)
    If she knew bout me and you (uh oh uh oh)
    What would my daddy say (uh oh uh oh)
    If he saw me hurt this way (uh oh uh oh)

    Uh oh uh oh

    Duffy hasn't had a reality tv background behind her, and she went to #1. so you can't say Pixie Lott's the first ??
