Give Me Just a Little More Time
Lovell Estell III
Who do you want me to be to make you sleep with me?1
My advice, which is really my mothers advice, is to just be yourself.
Dont they know theyre so damn lame?2
Does your mother know that youre out?3
Frankly, I dont see how this is your concern.
Was it me she was foolin cause she knew what she was doin when she
told me how to walk this way?4
While Ill allow that walk this way is a compelling metaphor for sexual congress between consenting adults, the question suggests unexpected expertise from someone much younger than yourself, which is another way of saying that elf-chick daughter of yours is super hot.
Do you really want to hurt me?5
Everyone wants to hurt Boy George.
If, when, why, what? How much have you got?6
$3.25, and I need it for a smoothie.
Do you wanna get down?7
I thought youd never ask. Beep beep, baby, beep beep.
Should I stay or should I go?8
The quintessential question and, sadly, one thats already been answered.
