  • Give me what I want
    And give it to me now!
    Don't be such a holy cow,
    Everybody knows that
    You can't make it happen!

    Give me what I wanted
    And give it to me now!
    Don't be such a greedy sow
    Everybody knows that
    You have never been down!

    Especially after
    Never having been there

    I'm the one who has
    And I will tell you this,
    With a biblical kiss,
    I will eat you, your folks
    And your kids for breakfast!

    I'm the one who has
    And I will tell you this,
    That I would never wish
    Death upon you, your cats
    And your throw cushions on Christmas!

    Especially after
    Never having really
    Done anything at all,
    You can't be the one
    No you can't be one
    No you can't be one
    No you can't

    Be the one
    No you can't be the one
    No you can't be the one
    No you can't be the one Writer/s: RUFUS WAINWRIGHT
