He: what the hell is wrong with you tonight?
I can't seem to say or do the right thing
Wanted to be sure you're feeling right
Wanted to be sure we want the same thing
She said:
She: I don't believe it
You can't - possibly mean it
Don't we - all want the same thing?
Don't we?
Who said anything about love?
He: no, not love, she said
She: don't you know that it's different for girls?
Don't give me love
He: no, not love, she said
She: don't you know that it's different for girls?
Both: you're all the same

He: mama always told me: save yourself
Take a little time and find the right girl
Then again don't end up on the shelf
Logical advice gets you in a whirl
I know - a lot of things that
You don't - you wanna hear some?
She said:
She: just give me something
Anything
Give me all you got but not love
He: no, not love, she said
She: don't you know that it's different for girls?
Don't give me love
He: no, not love, she said
She: don't you know that it's different for girls?
You're all the same
He: you're all the same
She: you're all the same
He: you're all the same
She: you're all the same
He: you're all the same
She: you're all the same
He: you're all the same
She: give me anything but not love
He: no, not love, she said
She: don't you know that it's different for girls?
Don't give me love
He: no, not love, she said
She: don't you know that it's different for girls?
Don't give me love
He: no, no, no, not love, she said
She: don't you know that it's different for girls?
Don't give me love
He: no, not love, she said
She: don't you know that it's different for girls?
Both: you're all the same
