Lyrics

Have you had enough?
Are you tough?
Are you broken?
Hit me where it hurts
Don’t just curtsy and sulk
I know I deserve every elegant word that you’re
Hurlin’ at me

When I listen to your voice
Squakin’ noise
I am thinkin’
How to counter back
With some nonsense and stink
I see little raindrops of love forming under your eyelids
As I push you too far

I know I’m a son of a gun
Pissin’ you off just for fun
You’re overdramatic
I’m aerodynamic
It’s oh, so romantic
That’s why I’m a son of a gun

When we started out
There was doubt
There was caution
But I wore you down
With my slapstick and passion
Tricks of the trade
I’m a loveable knave
I’m a handful
It’s true

All the itty bitty quirks
Used to work
In my favor
Now they tend to rot
And affect your behavior
I’m still the same freakonomical pain
But I love ya
And that will never change

I know I’m a son of a gun
Pissin’ you off just for fun
You’re overdramatic
I’m aerodynamic
It’s oh, so romantic
That’s why I’m a son of a gun

You’re overdramatic
I’m aerodynamic
It’s oh, so romantic
Our hearts filled with panic
If you’re the Titanic
I’ll swim the Atlantic
Addictions I can’t kick
To movies you don’t pick
I hate those romance flicks
That’s why I’m a son of a gun
