lyrics

I’ve got a boat in the harbor
I gotta car and it’s gassed up
I gotta horse in a stable, hot coffee in my cup
Gotta plane in the hanger and a chopper on the pad
I’m looking good, but I’m feeling bad
And I’m telling you why, no matter how I try
I can’t (no I can’t) I can’t seem to get away - from you

I gotta passport in my pocket
I got rockets on my feet
I gotta first class reservation on the subway down the street
I’m a mustang bullet train runaway main vein
Sitting on a broomstick inside Sputnik
Bound to fly before I die
But I can’t (no I can’t) I can’t get away - from you

Hear me when I say I’m on one knee about to pray
Please (baby) please (baby) please baby
Hear me when I say I’m on one knee about to pray
Please honey - go away

I gotta peacock in my pocket
I got a tiger in my tank (walla walla walla walla)
You keep on talking ‘bout “doing the dog”
And I keep on saying “no thanks” (walla walla)
No gratzi, nyet nyet, no sir, no ma’am
What part of “no” don’t you understand?
If you gotta talk, talk to the hand
Cuz I can’t (no I can’t) oh I can’t
You know I can’t (no I can’t) no, no, no I can’t
You know I can’t (no I can’t)
Well I can’t seem to get away
