Ben Folds – Protection lyrics

Tourists wear their wallets in high places when abroad
So as not to be ripped off in ways to which they're not apprised
Lawyers write some goofy terms in letters to the future
So as not to get all screwed by methods here and after devised
So will I

And I guess I will protect myself from you
Sometimes I get so tickled I can't talk
And I will protect myself from you
I'll keep on reminding me
I'm always free to walk

You're not exactly what I'm looking for
You don't even know that when I've got it straight, now keep it in mind
No you're not what I was looking for
I just need a little more of what you've got a little bit
Don't make me laugh

And I guess I will protect myself from you
Sometimes I get so tickled I just can't talk
But I will protect myself from you
I'll keep on reminding me
I'm always free to walk
Always free
Free
To
Walk
(hey)

Whatever happens between you and me today probably will be OK
But won't bother me
Anyway

And I guess I will protect myself from you
Sometimes I get so tickled I can't talk
But I will protect myself from you
And I'll keep on reminding me
I'm always free
To walk
Free
F-R-E-E

You can't, you can't hurt me causes I don't care about you
I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit
About you
Woah

The pussy - ass
Sounds of white - people
Playing jazz
