Hey boys,
Back in the alley, with a knife in her hand,
I think its that girl from the autograph stand.
She looks kinda sad,
does she understand
that we only doin our job.
Tryin' to make her happy when we play these songs,
but now the shows over.
She's comin over,
knife above her shoulder.
I told ya, I told ya, I told ya, I told ya.

(Chorus)x2
Run for your life. (you'll wish you had)
Cut you with a knife. (and leaves you)
Lying on the sidewalk. (with your)
Heart in your hands.

If you see a girl, with a knife,
riding on your bus, with my name written on her face
dont make a fuss,
dont rush, daytime.
This girls dangerous,
to guys like me, who are on tv.
Canadian celebrities can hardly believe that
you gonna act weird when you see em on the street.
If you seen what I seen
then you better to believe, to believe me.

Chorus x2

(Estero)
Um, hi Jarvis.
Could you sign this for me please?

(Jarvis)
Ya sure, no problem.

(Estero)
Thanks. Um make it out to Estero.

(Jarvis)
Alright.

(Estero)
Oh my god. I can't believe I'm actually talkin' to you. Wow.

(Jarvis)
Did you like the show

(Estero)
I loved the show

(Jarvis)
Thanks.

(Estero)
Actually um, I know everything about you;
I-I know where you live (yeah) and um
and your phone number
and uh I like to watch you at night. And...

(Jarvis)
What?!

(Estero)
actually um,
I like to drive by
where you live at.
I never stop though, cos your wife is always home.
And I know,
if she were to look into my eyes,
she'd see that we are in love.
Yes we are in love.
I'm so glad that we're together now.

(Jarvis)
Could someone call security?!

(Estero)
Did you get that package I sent you?

Chorus x2

Run for, Run for your life.
You'll be lying on the sidewalk.
With your heart in your hands.

(Trumpet solo)

(Humming/singing random words until end)
