lyrics

Imagine my dismay
I’ve been in your shoes
The coat that I mislaid
Must mean a lot to you
Yet you’re stopping by rather early
Just as our doors are opening
If I’d’ve had an evening like you did
Trust me, I’d rather be dozing
Good thing you had a friend with you
Someone to take you home

All the things you value
As you undoubtedly will discover
If they slip out of your fingers
They’ll be expensive to recover

You owe me one more thing
What could that be
In the pocket was a ring
C’mon and hand it over
You just won’t admit you were careless
Thinking you’ll hold us liable
If you want to claim that you’re blameless
You’re deep in self-denial
Can’t you afford a big reward
To ensure its safe return

All the things you value
As you undoubtedly will discover
If they slip out of your fingers
They’ll be expensive to recover

I won’t play this game with you
You have to give me back what’s mine
Or I’ll just call the boys in blue
Cause what you’re doing, it’s a crime

So now you’re acting tough
But where’s your proof
Buddy, this is not a bluff
Then why don’t you dial that number
’Cause using just a couple of details
We’ve learned so much about you
We can send some int’resting emails
Let everybody know what you’re up to
Maybe your wife deserves to learn
Just where you were last night

All the things you value
As you undoubtedly will discover
If they slip out of your fingers
They’ll be expensive to recover

All the things you value
As you undoubtedly will discover
If they slip out of your fingers
They’ll be expensive to recover

All the things you value
As you undoubtedly will discover
If they slip out of your fingers
They’ll be expensive to recover
