  • Wake up in a small cafe
    Sweatshop in the sunshine
    Set sail and you're far away
    Never using force

    Cold coffee or cabernet
    Brick-hoppin' the daydream
    Shoe drops and you're bound to pay
    Gotta stay the course

    You just wanna get, you don't wanna give
    You may forget, but you'll never forgive
    And what is the point of live and let live
    If they're stealin' your cup of joe

    It's a slick sham, hot damn
    You wind up in a toe jam
    You better scram fast, Sam
    The quicksand's gettin' close

    Ooh
    (Now say it again if you will)
    Ooh

    Have you got the nerve to give it up at the beginning
    And does it hurt you (does it hurt you)
    Does it hurt you (does it hurt you)

    My time was a miracle
    Insipid and satirical
    A madrigal of lyrical twists
    In the fist of a
    Christmas invitational
    Crisp and informational
    It seemed like a good idea at the time
    Why cry, mister magpie
    I spy kofi, fee, I mean, see, I mean
    Freedom ain't cheap, I mean
    The first test address
    No such thing as good press
    The best dressed messer in all Washington, D.C.

    Ooh
    (Now say it again if you will)
    Ooh

    Have you got the nerve to give it up at the beginning
    And does it hurt you (does it hurt you)
    Does it hurt you (does it hurt you) Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
