lyrics

Don’t flatter yourself like that
You should have known by now
that’s what I’m here for

Don’t flatter yourself
I can do you cheaper than you can do yourself
I’m your shiny polyester help
and I gladly present to you
everything I was too lame to do
for myself

Don’t lower yourself like that
Know what you’re in for
as you know what you’re out for

Don’t lower yourself
From eye-to-eye to an eye for an eye
in just the blink of an eye
Lay down, curl up and die
like the cheap little miserable fuck you are
Show me your smile
and I will show you my scar,
it’s a deal

Don’t be flattering me like that
You best think hard
on just what you go and wish for

Don’t be flattering me
You’ll flip my psycho-switch and stitch by stitch
all hell will break loose
There won’t be nothing left of me you can use
for your little pretty, pretty string of pearls
You snap you fingers and you sent me back
to my world

Don’t be barkin’ so vigorously
You crazy hound dog,
you picked the wrong tree

Don’t be barkin’ all wild and crazy
You’ll wake the neighbors and their set to keep her
safe from harm
Now you’ve unleashed your pathological charm on her
what else are they to do
but aim their automatic rifles at you
and go click, bang
