    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
