Lyrics

Running off over next door's garden

Before the hour is done

It's more a question of feeling

Than it is a question of fun

The confidence is the balaclava

I'm sure you'll baffle 'em good

Will the ending reek of salty cheeks

And runny makeup alone?

Or will blood run down the face

Of a boy bewildered and scorned?

Or you'll find yourself in a skirmish

Where you wish you'd never been born

You tie yourself to the tracks

And there isn't no going back

And it's wrong, wrong, wrong

But we'll do it anyway 'cause we love a bit of trouble

Are you pulling her from a burning building

Or throwing her to the sharks?

Can only hope that the ending is a pleasurable as the start

The confidence is the balaclava

I'm sure you baffle 'em straight

And it's wrong, wrong, wrong

She can hardly wait

That's right, he won't let her out his sight

Now the shaggers perform

And the daggers are drawn

Who's the crooks in this crime?

That's right, he won't let her out his sight

Now the shaggers perform

And the daggers are drawn

Who's the crooks is this

Crime?

That's right, he won't let her out his sight

That's right, he won't let her out his sight

That's right, he won't let her out his sight

Well, you'll be able to boast

Of the day of the most

Flawless heist of all time

You knew that it'd be trouble

Right before the very first kiss

Quiet, unassuming

But you heard that they were the naughtiest

She pleaded with you to take it off

But you resisted and fought

But sorry, sweetheart, I'd much rather

Keep on the balaclava
