Ruling Me

  • Ring ring goes your telephone
    You act like you ain't at home
    You shut me out, but it turns me on
    Red lipstick, black dresses
    A look that I should not mess with
    It makes us boys go crazy for you

    So fascinated
    I'm anticipating the touch
    That may never come

    [Chorus]
    In the rain
    In the sun
    Everybody needs someone
    They can dream of all night long
    All the pain
    And the ways
    That you're driving me insane
    It's no mystery why you're ruling me

    We first met in the lunch room
    My ocular nerve went, pop, zoom
    I never observed such a beautiful face
    Sweet lady, don't play me
    If I am a knob, don't fade me
    You can't win the game if you pass the ace

    I'm so frustrated
    This love's belated, methinks
    Let's get it to go

    [Chorus]

    I'm not kidding anymore
    This love hurts, that's for sure
    I feel you, I see you,
    I need you

    [Chorus]

    It's no mystery why you're ruling me
