Backfired
Your plan, your plan backfired
Backfired
My man, your plan backfired in your face

You came into my life to test me
Your diplomatic drag depressed me
The glitter in your eyes undressed me
You were polished slick
Really thick
Wasting time dropping lines like
"I could get you into movies"

But we wound up at Hot Jo's for hamburgers to go

Backfired
Your plan backfired
Backfired
My man, your plan backfired in your face

To steal my mind was your objective
The way you spoke was too aggressive
The silly jokes were not impressive
Like "A travelling salesman met a farmer with three daughters", yet
All the quips were so suggestive

Then we ran down to Hot Jo's for hamburgers to go

Backfired
Your plan backfired
Backfired
My man, your plan backfired in your face

Well, come here my little dear, I've got what it takes
Give me just what I want and I'll give you a break
Well, don't slip on your lips cause you're talking so fast
Buying for first, crying for last
Well come on my little lady, don't shoot me down
I've got strong connections all over town
Just drop to a dead stop (what?)

Fire (fire fire fire)
Back (back back back)

Backfired
Your plan backfired
Backfired
My man, your plan backfired

You were polished slick. Really thick
Wasting time dropping lines
Backfired

"A travelling salesman met a farmer with three daughters", yet
Backfired
Backfired
Backfired
Backfired
Backfired
Backfired
It backfired

A new line and try it again
Slick performance on demand
Backfired
You better back up fast and head out west
You may still collect
Backfired
It backfired
Your plan backfired
Too bad
Backfired
