Sometimes I like to go uptown
where flashy people flash around
It's extortionate and I don't care
you can taste the pretense in the air
And I wonder what you'll wear tonight
The shiny black dress with the slit at the thigh
Is it a fantasy that I should think
Someone like you could love a creep like me?

Your body is a weapon LOVE
and it makes me WANNA CRY
My body is a temple of doom,
Doomed not to be by YOUR side

I like my job when I do it well
It's freelance work and it pays like hell,
But I can get us a place with one bedroom
Who needs a friend, when I've got you?

Your body is a weapon LOVE
and it makes me WANNA CRY
My body is a temple of doom,
Doomed not to be by YOUR side.

I do not come here for the exclusivity,
I just come here for the view!
And the minuscule chance of some
Close proximity or an awkward conversation with you
Yeah that'd be cool.

YOUR BODY IS A WEAPON LOVE
AND IT RIPS ME UP INSIDE
MY BODY IS A TEMPLE OF DOOM,
DOOMED NOT TO BE, DOOMED NOT TO BE BY YOUR SIDE!

Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one-eyed one I love.
Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one-eyed one I love.

Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I love
From the one-eyed one I love.

    There are mistakes in every stanza. How can you mistake "temple of doom" for "temple of do", that doesn't even make sense. You have to be mentally challenge to be able to fuck up the lyrics this bad.

    I posted a correction. I think part of the problem is that Murph does throw in unusual words in his songs, like "pretense" and "extortionate" in this one. The Womabts: improving your vocabulary every day!

    It's basically about a girl he finds attractive, but too attractive for him. It pains him to see her, because he feels he can't be with her.
