Sliding through life on charm

Album : Kissin Time

The family tree was chain-sawed Wednesday week.
So now I have to mingle with the meek.
Hey mister! you have finally met your match
Now everybody wants to kiss my snatch —
To go where God knows who has gone before.
I am a muse, not a mistress, not a whore.
Oh — suburban shits who want some class
All queue up to kiss my ass
And I was only trying to please
I never got any royalties oh no — not me
I´m still sliding through life on charm
Sliding through life on charm.

If Marianne was born a man she´d show you all
A way to piss your life against the wall.
Go ahead why don´t you leave me to these thugs?
And creeps who want to fuck a nun on drugs.
Is it such a sin I never, ever tried too hard?
I had to know how far was going too far —
In proper homes throughout the land Fathers try to understand
Why Eunice who is seventeen — aspires to live her life like me
Oh no — Can´t ya see, Daddy?
She´s just captivated by my charm
Sliding through life on charm.


I wonder why the schools don´t teach anything useful these days
Like how to fall from grace, and slide with elegance from a pedestal
I never asked to be on in the first place.

Sliding on charm
Sliding on charm
Sliding on charm
Sliding on charm
Sliding on charm
Sliding on charm.
