40 Dogs


Well if I spell it out
If I yell it out
Will you hear me when I tell you about
What I have to say before it gets too late?
It's not as easy as I said it'd be
But there's something right about you and me
Something right about you and me

Well you're the color of a burning brook
You're the color of a sideways look from an undercover cop in a comic book
You're the color of a storm in June
You're the color of the moon
You're the color of the night, that's right
Color of a fight, you move me
You're the color of the colored part of the Wizard of Oz movie

We're like Romeo and Juliet
We're like 40 dogs and cigarettes
We're like good times that haven't happened yet, but will

And I can tell you where we're going to be
When the whole world falls into the sea
We'll be living ever after, happily

All the boys taking you for granted
Tell you what they want, with their eyes all slanted
I don't like the way they look at you
I don't like the way they talk to
I don't like the way they talk to you
I wouldn't let them talk to you like that

Put em' up high, reach for the ceiling
Tell them that I'ma walk, damn it, I'm real
It ain't no crimes, it's just dreams we stealing
Anything to get more of this feeling
You take the high and I'll take the low
We'll get there before you know
We ain't got no time to waste
We got too much life to taste

We're like Romeo and Juliet
And 40 dogs and cigarettes
We're like good times that haven't happened yet, but will

And I can tell you where we're going to be
When the whole world falls into the sea
We'll be living ever after, happily

Sometimes you remind me of a moonbeam
On the ghost of a moonbeam
Out on the beach down by the coast
Slip into Manila like the most, beautiful thing, I've ever seen

Come out tonight, come out with me, baby
We'll throw the careful into the crazy
Turn the sky black into a sky blue
Turn a close shave into a hoo-hoo!
What I say is true
Make a fire gotta burn a few
Make a fire gotta burn a few
And we can do what we want to do

We're like Romeo and Juliet
40 dogs and cigarettes
We're like good times that haven't happened yet, but will

I can tell you where we're going to be
When the whole world falls into the sea
We'll be living ever after, happily

Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah
