lyrics

You were supposed to be professional but you ended up not at all
Respectful, you were totally out of line
I came to the meeting with modesty beseeching
You still thought asking me out was fine

Well I don’t want to dumb it down for all you weak clowns
Who can’t handle a woman in her sway
And I refuse to acquire what it is I desire
By playing your manipulative game

You held my fate wrapped up in a date
The one that I will never go on
You took my innocence as ignorance
You could not have been more wrong

And I don’t want to dumb it down for all you weak clows
Who can’t handle a woman in her sway
And I refuse to acquire the things I desire
By playing your filthy game

I was at your mercy and you were feeling thirsty
So you thought we could both win
Well I would rather down in the sewer downtown
Than to ever live up to your kind of sin

Well I don’t want to dumb it down for all you weak clowns
Who can’t handle a woman in her sway
And I refuse to acquire what it is I desire
By playing your manipulative game

And I don’t want to dumb it down for all you weak clowns
Who can’t handle a woman in her sway
And I refuse to acquire the things I desire
By playing your filthy game

Your filthy game
Your filthy game
I will not play
Your filthy game
