I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands for you
But every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue for
You

I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands but every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue for

You ooo...
For you ooo...
So black and blue ooo...
For you ooo...

I grabbed some frozen strawberries so I could ice your bruisy knees
But frozen things they all unfreeze and now I taste like
All those frozen strawberries I used to chill your bruisy knees,
Hot July ain't good to me
I'm pink and black and blue

I got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue

Got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
Got pink and black and blue for

You ooo...
For you ooo...
So black and blue ooo...
For you ooo...

Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do
Do-doo-do-do-do

    Awsome song, yes it is random, but it just falls together and makes sence.
    .. seems that she bent over backwards for a guy that didn't give a shit and let her fall. Then he realized, and by than, it was tooo LATE... Reminds me of some of my relationships..
