  • She works downtown in an unmarked bar,
    Flyin' round poles she always gave me the fright of my life
    I didn't mean to get involved it was the alcohol
    Mixed with and empty feeling inside
    Its such a bad idea to fall in love with a 'lady of the night'

    Why didn't God give her two left feet
    Then she couldn't run away from me!

    Months go by and I'm alone in bed
    While she's greasing up for when the businessmen and lawyers arrive
    I've got to wear a beard a suit and tie
    To get past the door if I want to see my girl tonight
    I go to all this effort just to see my fair Patricia going home with some other guy

    Why didn't God give her two left feet
    Then she couldn't run away from me!
    Why didn't God give her two left feet
    Then she couldn't run away from me!

    She thinks I'm sad and that's alright
    But she doesn't hate me so there's my little alibi
    I can't, I can't leave, I can't I can't I can't
    She's my coked-up botox girl

    Patricia, Patricia
    Oh Patricia the Stripper you are my sunshine
    Oh Patricia the stripper come on home tonight
    Oh Patricia the Stripper you are my sunshine
    So why can't you come home with me tonight? Writer/s: DANIEL JOSEPH HAGGIS, MATTHEW EDWARD MURPHY, TORD OEVERLAND KNUDSEN
