Oh no, not this again
I hoped that you knew this
I’m a particular man
I’m crafting my bliss
I thought that you understood
How to engage me
No no don’t hesitate
You know I’d like this chance to relate
I’d like to take this chance to relate
I want you to do things that I say

Tell me it’s forgivable
Gabby, make me a hi-ball
Be unforgettable, catch me when I fall
Imbecile grin and all
Here we go from the top again
I hope that you get this
I’m a very motivated man
With an opportunity to state
I’d like to take this chance to relate
I want you to do things that I say
