Living on a substitute We'll quibble on the cost Well I am selfish Say its about me Because I am so selfish You can here the way I breath Look on threw me Ah, you cant fool me Dazed, don't call it love Put an arrow right on through me So much better for the metaphor For seeming young and stupid So Sue me. (Hear the call Its Obvious) Who will you trust To take care of you So much better for the metaphor When your older For seeming young and stupid Who'll be there So Sue me. To wave goodbye
