I'm jumping ship before we ever set sail
This mind's playing tricks to no real avail
Those luscious red lips, our pool side rendezvous
Face down in confusion, I was only thinking of you

I don't want you to be my little Lolita
I'm not looking for my own Cherry Valance
Take a train to Cali sweet Sally Simpson
You're never gonna be my delicate Daisy

Your whisper seems distant on such a cold night
Your face young and vibrant, each expression more bright
This mind screaming no, this mouth saying yes
My car's warm and dry, Do you think it's the best

I don't want you to be my little Lolita
I'm not looking for my own Cherry Valance
Take a train to Cali sweet Sally Simpson
You're never gonna be my delicate Daisy

Please keep this in mind, there's one fatal flaw
Above all the others this one fact stands tall
This ship we could board, it's destine to sink
Hoping you know, we won't come back from the brink

I won't go down with the ship
