She said to me oh I don't know what you mean
All I'm trying to do is
Trying to make your scene
I said to her no way baby life ain't what it seem
Well don't you know baby that life is a scream - aagh
She came up to me in her high fashion and sheen
Well don't you know that she was trying to come clean
I said to her no way baby life ain't what it seem
Well don't you know baby that life's a scream - aagh
She said to me oh I love it when you're mean
Don't you know it's boring when it's quiet and serene
I said to her no way baby life ain't what it seem
Got to get it through your head that life is a scream - aaheeii!
