lyrics

Picked you out of the crowd
No one will hear you
It's too loud

Take you back to my house
Let's play our own game
of cat and mouse

There's no getting out
Quiet now
or I'll sew up your mouth

You're not exactly the prettiest little thing in town
The shepherd was watching the sheep
so I took the cow

Slipped through the herd and snatched you up
This big, bad wolf's been getting in his cups

There's no getting out
Quiet now
or I'll sew up your mouth

What caught my eye was the dull look in yours
Said, "This one's too dim, dumb to be bored"

No one must have cared about you
'cause this was easy
As easy as a sin in a pew

There's no getting out
Quiet now
or I'll sew up your mouth
