  • Prince Johnny you're kind but you're not simple
    By now I think I know the difference
    You wanna be a son of someone

    Remember the time we went and snorted
    That piece of that berlin wall that you extorted
    And we had such a laugh of it
    Prostrate on my carpet

    You traced that andes with your index
    And brag of when and where and who you're going to bed next
    Oh we're sons of someone's
    Oh we're sons of someone's

    I saw you pray to, oh oh oh oh oh, to make you a real boy
    Saw you pray to oh oh oh oh oh, to make you a real boy

    Prince Johnny you're kind but do be careful
    By now I know just when to stand clear
    When all your friends and acolytes
    Holding court in bathroom stalls
    Where you pray to, oh oh oh oh oh, to make you a real boy
    Saw you pray to oh oh oh oh oh, to make you a real boy

    But honey, don't mistake my affection
    For another spit in penny style redemption.
    Cause we're all sons of someone's
    We're all sons of someone's
    I'll mean more than I mean to you
    I'll mean more than I meant to him

    So I pray to, oh oh oh oh oh, to make me a real girl
    So I pray to, oh oh oh oh oh, to make me a real girl
    So I pray to, oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh
    Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh Writer/s: ANNE ERIN CLARK
