Lyrics

If it weren't for your maturity, none of this would have happened
If you weren't so wise beyond your years, I would've been able to
control myself
If it weren't for my attention, you wouldn't have been successful, and if
If it weren't for me, you would never have amounted to very much

Oo, this could be messy, but
But you don't seem to mind, and
Oo, don't go telling everybody, and
And over-look this supposed crime

We'll fast forward to a few years later, and
And no one knows except the both of us
And I have honored your request for silence
And you've washed your hands clean of this

You're essentially an employee and I like you having to depend on me
You're a kind of protégé and one day you'll say you learned all you know
from me, and
And I know you depend on me like a young thing would to a guardian
I know you sexualize me like a young thing would and I think I like it

Oo, this could get messy, but
Oo, you don't seem to mind
Dude, don't go telling everybody, and
Over-look this supposed crime

We'll fast forward to a few years later, and
No one knows except the both of us
I've more than honored your request for silence
And you've washed your hands clean of this

What part of our history's re-invented and under rug swept?
What part of your memory is selective and tends to forget?
What with this distance it seems so obvious

Just make sure you don't tell on me
Especially to members of your family
We best keep this to ourselves
And not tell any members of our inner posse
I wish I could tell the world
'Cause you're such a pretty thing when you're done up properly
I might wanna marry you one day
If you'd watch that weight and you keep your firm body

Oo, this could be messy, and
Oo, I don't seem to mind
Oo, don't go telling everybody, and
Over-look this supposed crime

We'll fast forward to a few years later, and
No one knows except the both of us
And I have honored your request for silence
And you've washed your hands clean of this

Oo, this could get messy, but
Oo, I don't seem to mind
Oo, don't go telling everybody, and
Over-look this supposed crime

We'll fast forward to a few years later, and
No one knows except the both of us
And I have honored your request for silence
And you've washed your hands clean of this
