Spoken : The women of this family seem to feel that they owe it to the men
of the family to look relaxed, rested, and attractive at dinnertime.

For you they live in a quiet monastery
For you they wear whatever you want them to as long as it is short
They count to ten when you tell them how to drive
And when they're afraid they let you speak for them

All hail the king of intimidation
Model of good Christian behavior
For you we wax, we scale, and chicken our legs
For you we chew our nails if we had any left buy fake ones to do it
We counted to 10 temporarily
And it was somethin' about how you talk down to me

All hail the king of intimidation
Model of good Christian behavior
The room of compromise is full, and apparently you don't want some,
There's only so much we can do to make you rest assured

I am single
I am weary
You're just jealous
You're just confused
You're just hungry
You're in sin now
You're not happy
You are petty

All hail the king of intimidation
Model of good Christian behavior
He knows not of what he has wrongly done
Forgive his ignorant behavior
You are tortured
You are captured
You are busted
We were silent
You were tested
You knew better
You are lonely
Was it worth it?
La,la,la
