  • Not gonna be your walkin' mat honey
    And I don't really care if you tip your hat my way, no
    So wear your best dress and smile for the flash and a prize giving bash
    Where you pick on another man's dream
    You know what I mean!

    Are you talkin' to me she said
    Are you talkin' to me
    I never got nothing for free she said, no
    I never ever got nothing for free and
    And I said, I'm not gonna be your walkin' mat

    Throw your stones and break my back
    Curse my name for all your like
    Your champagne war games been replaced
    I see through that pretty smile on your face

    Take two pills and dance on the table
    If I want does it mean I'm not stable in the head?
    Not gonna drink your frozen Margueritas
    And I don't really need a "fone a Senorrita"
    For my bed, oh no no no!

    "Are you sayin' we're through?" she said
    "Are you sayin' we're through?"
    "Why should I listen to you" she said
    "Tell me why I should listen to you?" and I said
    "Too many times you tried, tried to bring you down"

    Thrown stones and break my back
    Curse my name for all your lack
    Your champagne wargames been replaced
    I see through that pretty smile on your face

    Leave all that cocaine in my room, yeah yeah
    No I'll not be leaving to please you, oh no no
    And I'm not gonna be your walkin' mat
    No, I'm never ever gonna be your walkin' mat
    No I'll never ever let you bring me down again like this

    Thrown stones and break my back
    Curse my name for all your lack
    Your champagne war games been replaced
    I see through that pretty smile on your face
    Ooh yeah!
    I see through that smile Writer/s: CORMAC NEESON, CORMAC SEAMUS NEESON, JAMES HEATLEY, MICHAEL JOHN GERARD WATERS, MICHAEL WATERS, PAUL DAVID MAHON, PAUL MAHON
