Backfired

Backfired
Your plan your plan
Backfired
Backfired
My man your plan
Backfired in your face

You came into my life to test me
Your diplomatic drag depressed me
The glitter in your eyes undressed me

You were polished slick
Really thick
Wasting time dropping lines
Like I could get you into movies

But we wound up at Hojo's for hamburgers to go

Backfired
Your plan
Backfired
Backfired
My man your plan
Backfired in your face

To steal my mind was your objective
The way you spoke was too aggresive
The silly jokes were not impressive

Like a traveling salesman met
Farmer with three daughters yet
All the quips were so suggestive

Then we ran down to Hojo's for hamburgers to go

Backfired
Your plan
Backfired
Backfired
My man your plan
Backfired in your face

Well come here my little dear I've got what it takes
Give me just what I want and I'll give you a break
Well don't slip on your lips cuz you're talking so fast
Buying for first crying for last
Well come on my little lady don't shoot me down
I've got strong connections all over town
Just drop to a dead stop

Backfired
Your plan
Backfired
Backfired
My man your plan
Backfired

You were polished slick
Really thick
Wasting time dropping lines
Backfired
A traveling salesman met
A farmer with three daughters yet
Backfired
Backfired
Your plan
Backfired
Couldn't work out no
Backfired
My man your plan backfired in your face
It backfired

Backfired
Your plan just backfired
No no it couldn't work out
Backfired

Better get a new line and try it again
Slick performance on demand
Backfired

You better back up fast and head out west
You may still collect
Backfired
It backfired
Your plan
Backfired
Too bad
Backfired
My man your plan
Backfired

Well come here my little dear I've got what it takes
Give me just what I want and I'll give you a break
Well don't slip on your lips cuz you're talking so fast
Buying for first crying for last
Well come on my little lady don't shoot me down
I've got strong connections all over town
Just drop to a dead stop
