my terrible luck (or constants and variables)


Can you see them?
See right through them
They have no shield
No secrets to reveal

Terry Hall, Our Lips Are Sealed

everybody knows
why I broke up with Ted
he’s so good at his job
and so lousy in bed

I probably told you
why I broke up with Ray
that silly mama’s boy
calls her six times a day

I guess you figured out
why I broke up with Bart
that hyperactive bowel
always makin him fart

it sure ain’t no secret
why I dumped Mr. White
his crazy sex fetish
and his sick appetite

I don’t have to tell you
why I kicked out that boozer
could never hold a job
such an adorable loser

the guys I go out with
they certainly suck
I’ll never figure out
my terrible luck
