Verse 1
You got a quick snap-lock on your cold, cold heart
You got your YSL kicks and a red birthmark
In the shape of Canada
That you try to keep a secret

Verse 2
You got a quick clack walk
And a cold hard stare
And if your eyes could talk
They'd say they just don't care
Before they wander off
To hide inside their sockets

Chorus
You've got your scars
And you've got your birthmarks
You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
You've got your secrets
You've got your regrets
Darling, we all do

Verse 3
You got a fool-proof plan, for a lonely life
You won't be no one's daughter and no drunk man's wife
If a wife at all
It's a silly institution
Or so you keep insisting

Chorus
You've got your scars
And you've got your birthmarks
You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
You've got your secrets
You've got your regrets
Darling, we all do

Bridge
You're cool coy,
'Bout your strawberry hip
It's you that's hidden by the expectations
We want to see you,
Won't you show us where to start?
You're talking trash with your replica lips
It's you that tickle,
In the conversation
Sweet Betty,
Won't you show us who you are?

Chorus
You've got your scars and you've got your birthmarks
You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
You've got your secrets
You've got your regrets
Darling, we all do

You've got a quick snap-lock on your cold, cold heart
