lyrics

This is for the catholic girls
Who grew up right
You peel away a single surface
Call it appetite
Then what we’ll find is simple simple
Rather primal, rather wrinkled
But it lasts, and then it bites
Like the malaria mosquito

Maybe this is for the boys
With their insidious commands
Yea all that genuflecting weighing on
Their life skills pants
But we didn’t dare receive them
For fear we would deceive them
Now I think they’ll make it out
But we wouldn’t want to be them, right?

Chorus:
Cover my body in napalm baby
Burn, let it burn ’till we all go crazy
Before. We. Will be like the boys
We’d rather be soft, rather be delicious
We’re always peach pie, always smile, never vicious
Until. We. Like the boys

This is for you college girls
Who think you’re smart
Your operations are all doomed
Examinations after dark
Yea what they tell us is so simple
Rather primal, rather wrinkled
Takes precision of the thinker
Hearing classics on a harp

But we harpoon the first boy
Who tickles fancy and delight
We know, we know, we know better
What we know we don’t cite
‘Cause when that clock strikes the 10
You’ll bet I’ll get my wish
We can be friends ’til then
After that, you’ll call me a…

This is for the girls
This is for the girls
This is for the girls
But I kinda like boys
Yea, this is for the girls
This is for the girls
This is for the girls
When we treat them like toys
See, this is how it feels
This is how it feels
This is how it feels
Something you can’t avoid
Yea, this is how it feels
This is how it feels
This is how it feels
When I don’t get my choice
