I'm surprised that you even found me

And you don't stand an outside chance

You don't stand an outside chance

Whatever you do girl
You know you can't get through girl
Can't bring me down
Hang me up or even hang around

I know you think you'll get me

You better leave me alone

[repeat verse 1]

[repeat chorus]

Stand an outside chance [rant to fade]
