lyrics

Oh my baby I’ve treated you so bad
I gotta be the worst you ever had
I’ve kept you all these years
crying all my television tears
you know you know, you don’t have any fun
feel so stupid look so dumb
in the makeup and the scarf
well I just can’t let you be who you are

Can you walk and talk and dumb down
breath in breathe out and dumb down
oh I do, I do, I dumb down

Here’s how to move and shake, come take my hand
to parties where the people just jabber
oh I'm just a fake, an old back-stabber
but just remember don’t ever play it straight
the worst are boring the best manipulate
it’s all through the eyes
I say my lines, I don’t apologize

Can you walk and talk and dumb down
breath in breathe out and dumb down
oh I do, I do, I dumb down

And what do you get, you get to do my dirty work
what do you get , you get to do my flirty work...

C’mon baby it’s not about the dough
my darlin don’t you know
you’re the dummy that I hung my dreams on
we can never let each other go
