You Make Me Stand In The Corner

From the album Asleep At The Helm Buy Now

 

Cho: You make me stand in the corner

Whenever you think I’ve been bad

The lewd thoughts I get

Well, they haven’t stopped yet

In the corner, they’re driving me mad!!

 

So I close my eyes tightly, in hopes that I might see

A non-sexist view of your bod,

But your leg comes to mind, yes, I know

     you’re behind,

When you’re there, it really gets hard

Sometimes I can steal a peek at the ceiling

Pretending I’m six inches tall

But the cobwebs up there look like soft downy hair,

And my thoughts start me climbing the wall!

Chorus

 

Sometimes I talk dirty, you laugh and act flirty

You say I’m your young Romeo

But then you have moods when you’re

     just not amused,

And it’s back to the corner I go!

You know I’m concerned, I’ve been trying to learn

How to feel what you want me to feel.

But I’m usually wrong, . . I come on like King Kong

Who’s banana has lost it’s appeal!!

Chorus

 

There’s a beast in my mind who thinks SEX all

     the time

Alone I can’t fight his command

When I say something clean, he makes me

     sound obscene,

We could beat him if you’d lend a hand.

Men have a disease, they see women as pieces

They’re trained to desire each part.

So I’ve made it my goal to see you as a (w)hole, ...

But then I’m right back where I start!

Chorus
