Nellie Mckay – Beecharmer lyrics

(feat. Cyndi Lauper)

[Cindy Lauper:]
Sewed everything you said
Together in a thread
Repeating in my mind
Each word like a rhyme
Like a penny serenade
Looking through his song
He said the record's overplayed
But where did I go wrong

[Nellie Mckay:]
You never stayed at first
Could not commit the time
Ignored all the quirks
But he still did the crime
And when he goes away
I know you'll call and cry

[Cindy Lauper:]
And when he calls up to tell
Now I'm gonna cry

[Nellie Mckay:]
But I know you're mine
When you're on the line

[Cindy Lauper:]
Is it something I said

[Nellie Mckay:]
Would you let him walk away

[Cindy Lauper:]
Got it stuck in my head

[Nellie Mckay:]
Don't you hear a word I say

[Cindy Lauper:]
Is it something I said

[Nellie Mckay:]
Every night the same old moan
It's ahhh, I'm waiting till my Joe comes home

Everytime he asks me how I feel
When I tell him, the phone goes dead

[Nellie Mckay:]
I'm the queen of qvc
You're leaning on my ear
You mean the world to me
Though the connection isn't clear
Like my ink sputs 78's
Convenient when you're low

[Cindy Lauper:]
Feel like an antelope on a nature show
Oh no!
I guess I gotta go

[Nellie Mckay:]
But I know you're mine
When you're on the line

[Cindy Lauper:]
Is it something I said

[Nellie Mckay:]
Would you let him walk away

[Cindy Lauper:]
Got it stuck in my head

[Nellie Mckay:]
Don't you hear a word I say

[Cindy Lauper:]
Is it something I said

[Nellie Mckay:]
Everytime we're on the phone
It's ahhh, I'm waiting till my Joe comes home

[Cindy Lauper:]
Hey!

[Nellie Mckay:]
Cast away romance

[Cindy Lauper:]
What's it gonna take

[Nellie Mckay:]
No knights with shiny armor

[Cindy Lauper:]
Hey!

[Nellie Mckay:]
Try a different dance
Oh, I'm a real bee charmer

[Cindy Lauper:]
Well I scold and I scratched to make him stay
But he don't wanna know from me
Why that old alley cat, he runs away

[Nellie Mckay:]
Lock the door and lose the key

[Cindy Lauper:]
Is it something I said

[Nellie Mckay:]
Would you let him walk away

[Cindy Lauper:]
I got it stuck in my head

[Nellie Mckay:]
Don't you hear a word I say

[Cindy Lauper:]
Is it something I said

[Nellie Mckay:]
Every night the same trombone
It's ahhh, I'm waiting till my Joe comes home

[Cindy Lauper:]
Hey!

[Nellie Mckay:]
Let's forget romance
Let's correct romance
With knights in shiny armor

What's it gonna take
Try a different dance
Oh, I'm a real bee charmer...
