VIOLENT FEMMES


Add It Up Lyrics

[a capella]
Day after day
I will walk and I will play
But the day after today
I will stop
and I will start

Why can't I get just one kiss?
Why can't I get just one kiss?
Believe me there's some things that I wouldn't miss
But I look at your pants and I need a kiss!

Why can't I get just one screw?
Why can't I get just one screw?
Believe me I know what to do!
But something won't let me make love to you.

Why can't I get just one fuck?
Why can't I get just one fuck?
I guess it's got something to do with luck!
But I waited my whole life for just one...

Day after day
I get angry
And I will say
That the day
Is in my sight
When I'll take a bow
and say goodnight.

Oh my my mymymy mo mo mum
Have you kept your eye, your eye on your son?
I know you've had problems
You're not the only one
When your sugar left, he left you on the run.

Oh my my mymymy mo mo mum
Take a look now at what your boy has done
He's walkin' around like he's #1
He went downtown and he got him a gun.

So don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
Don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
You know you've got my sympathy
But don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
[repeat]

Broken down kitchen at the top of the stairs
Can I mix in with your affairs?
Share a smoke, make a joke
Grasp and reach for a leg of hope.

Words to memorize
Words hypnotize
Words make my mouth exercise
Words all fail the magic prize
Nothin' I can say when
I'm in your thighs

Mo my my mymymy mo my mother
I would love to love you, lover
City is restless, it's ready to pounce
Here in your bedroom, ounce for ounce
[repeat]

I'm givin' you decision to make
Things to lose, things to take
Just as he's about ready to cut it up
She said,
"Wait a minute, honey, I'm gonna
Add it up."

Oh
Add it up!
Add it up!
Add it up!
Add it up!
[repeat]

Day after day
I get angry
And I will say
That the day
Is within my sight
When I'll take a bow
And say goodnight

goodnight

--G. Gano
