Down By Law – Question Marks & Periods lyrics

Knocking down your door, it seems I couldn't even get arrested
Though I tried & tried - my best - well I was getting bested
Everybody had some kind of interest that was vested
Could it be the time for exclamation points is over ?
Could it be the time for truths in semi colons?
Everybody smiled - a pat on the head & oh what a nice boy
Never took us seriously - they were playing with their other toys
But now I find I'm in demand & you'll find I've developed quite a voice
Could it be the time for explanation points is over? Could it be the time for truths in semi colons?
Just question marks and periods, period my friend
No question marks, period, cause I think it's time to send
Send it all back to you
With a smile & some ribbon bow too
We're the best, at worst - now every-body tells us so
But you refuse to hear it - because you have got us pigeonholed
Well I'm the joker in your hand - we'll play til one of us has to fold
