    Intro:  Main Riff x8


    w/Main Riff:

    Come on come on baby

    Let me show you what I'm talkin' about

    You try to be a lady

    But you're walkin' like a sour kraut

    Looka looka lika lika

    Like you wanna get some

    If you never tell a lie

    Then you never have to play dumb


    Prechorus (w/High Riff):

    Dirty baby time you're gonna take some

    Pretty baby love you're gonna make some

    Little lady hearts you're gonna break some

    Kinda shady tears you're gonna fake some

    Dirty baby we've got a situation

    Pretty baby open invitation

    Little lady what a reputation

    Kinda shady now you're gonna make again

    Main Riff x4



    w/Main Riff:

    Every other day you say

    You're gonna have to bury em'

    Famous last words

    Spoken from the laserium

    Descendents had a record

    Sayin' somethin' 'bout Milo

    You can take an A-train

    But you're gonna have to lie low
