  • Me and Liza, Liza and I
    Famous 'til the day that we die
    Mama made it so hard to try
    Me and Liza Liza and I

    Daddy writing unanswered love letters, why?
    Come on, Liza give me a try

    Blowing on the embers of fame
    Burning down the house of your name
    Everything can go up in flames
    As long as you have something to frame

    Energizer baby's on fire
    No one's gonna hatchet you down
    Terminator, thief of desire
    No one's gettin' out of this town

    Fucking up the embers of fame
    Burning down the house of your name
    Everything can go up in flames
    As long as you have something to frame

    Me and Liza, Liza and I
    Happy that we're now such good friends
    Looking forward, forward to seeing you
    Love like ours we can not pretend

    Choking on the embers of fame
    Burning down the house of your name
    Everything can go up in flames
    As long as you have something to frame

    Me and Liza, Liza and I (me and Liza, Liza and I)
    Me and Liza, Liza and I (me and Liza, Liza and I)
    Me and Liza, Liza and I (me and Liza, Liza and I)
