lyrics

Girl, our friendship’s been great so far
But I’d renegotiate these parts
In Article 7d: “no touchy feely”
That ain’t appealing
And in Section 63: “kisses are stealing”
Well, I disagree

It ain’t stealing if you’re needy
And I need benefits
And your friends wouldn’t believe me
If I said you gave a kiss
Away to little me
You act like its grand larceny
Well, book me, Danno. I confess
If I don’t get this, you don’t get that

I fill the gap you say they never fill
And probably never will
No, they probably never will
Except they got the snatch while I just got the bill
How am I supposed to feel?

When you text me your coordinates
I didn’t need to, but still I met you
At the spot at 4 am
And then you leave to
Get with my friend

It ain’t stealing if you’re needy
And I need benefits
And your friends wouldn’t believe me
If I said you gave a kiss
Away to little me
You act like its grand larceny
Well, book me, Danno. I confess
If I don’t get this, you don’t get that
love that you’ve taken for granted
And that trust of a hopeless romantic
You can buy all your own beer
And tell someone else when you miss a period
I’m sick of hearing it
And I don’t care
