  • My queen of the Bronx
    Blue eyes and spitfire
    I saw you walking back and forth about another boy
    Thinking that you may want to leave

    So give me the fevers that just won't break
    And give me the children you don't want to raise
    And tell me about the Cool, he sings to you in those songs
    If it's better than my love, then bring it on

    And take it back out to the streets where you know you used to be
    For the Romeos uptown, if I bring you down
    And you're tired of those vows
    And you're really walking out

    So give me the fevers that just won't break
    And give me the children you don't want to raise
    And tell me about the Cool, he sings to you in those songs
    If it's better than my love, baby, bring it on
    Oh, bring it on

    Stop clicking your red heels and wishing for home
    I'm hearing that he tells you he can read your palms
    Is he better than my love? (better than my love?)
    Is he better than my love? (better than my love?)

    So I found the letters with the reasons to things
    You've been feeling that he says they'll never know
    And you say the night just got too cold

    Well, everybody's cold
    Who's gonna keep my baby warm
    When everybody goes?

    So give me the fevers that just won't break
    And give me the children you don't want to raise
    And tell me about the Cool, he sings to you in those songs
    If it's better than my love

    Well, then wait a minute, wait a minute
    (Wasn't I good to you?)
    Wait a minute, wait a minute
    (Wasn't I good to you?)
    Wait a minute, wait a minute
    (You don't know what's good for you)

    So give me the fevers that just won't break
    And give me the children you don't want to raise
    And tell me about the Cool, he sings to you in those songs
    You've been my baby for so long, come on, bring it on
    Oh, bring it on

    Stop clicking your red heels and wishing for home
    I'm hearing that he tells you he can read your palms
    If he's better than my love
    If he's better than my love, then go on, take it all Writer/s: BRIAN FALLON
