I Didn't Have The Nerve To Say No

You got ants in your pants
I don't understand
I don't trust the flick of your eyes
You're a viper and love's a fever

You said something profane
And went for a vein
But in spite of your delicate touch
I should have known as much
I'm a bleeder

I didn't have the nerve to say no
I didn't have the nerve to say no

You caught me surprised
And my will resigned
Torture the minds of them all
You're a brain drain, you'd better beat it

I'm following lines
The blind leads the blind
So hang me or grant me a stay
You better cut me loose
Or hand me a noose

I didn't have the nerve to say no
I didn't have the nerve to say no

You said something profane
And went for a vein
But in spite of your delicate touch
I should have known as much
I'm a bleeder

There's no end to the problem
Of a bad situation
Complication
No, no, no, no, ah
There's no end to the problem
And frustration
I need a vacation
No, no, no, no, ah
And I know I couldn't
And I know that I couldn't say no
