[Waltzing Matilda] Waltzing Matilda whipped out her wallet the sexy boy smiled in dismay She took out four twenties 'cause she liked round figures everybody's a queen for a day Oh, babe, I'm on fire and you know how I admire your - - body why don't we slip away Although I'm sure you're certain, it's a rarity me flirtin' she-la-la-la, this way Oh, sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la hey, baby, come on, let's slip away Luscious and gorgeous, oh what a hunk of muscle call out the national guard She creamed in her jeans as he picked up her means from off of the formica topped bar And cascading slowly, he lifted her wholly and boldly out of this world And despite people's derision proved to be more than diversion sha-la-la-la, later on And then sha-la-la-la-la, he entered her slowly and showed her where he was coming from And then sha-la-la-la-la, he made love to her gently it was like she'd never ever come And then sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la when the sun rose and he made to leave You know, sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la neither one regretted a thing [Street Hassle] Hey, that cunt's not breathing I think she's had too much of something or other, hey, man, you know what I mean I don't mean to scare you but you're the one who came here and you're the one who's gotta take her when you leave I'm not being smart or trying to be cold on my part and I'm not gonna wear my heart on my sleeve But you know people get all emotional and sometimes, man, they just don't act rational they think they're just on TV Sha-la-la-la, man why don't you just slip her away You know, I'm glad that we met man it really was nice talking and I really wish that there was a little more time to speak But you know it could be a hassle trying to explain myself to a police officer about how it was that your old lady got herself stiffed And it's not like we could help but there was nothing no one could do and if there was, man, you know I would have been the first But when someone turns that blue well, it's a universal truth and then you just know that bitch will never fuck again By the way, that's really some bad shit that you came to our place with but you ought to be more careful around the little girls It's either the best or it's the worst and since I don't have to choose I guess I won't and I know this ain't no way to treat a guest But why don't you grab your old lady by the feet and just lay her out on the darkened street and by morning, she's just another hit and run You know, some people got no choice and they can't never find a voice to talk with that they can even call their own So the first thing that they see that allows them the right to be why they follow it, you know, it's called bad luck [Slipaway] Believe me, that it's just a lie that's what she tells her friends 'cause the real song, the real song which she won't even admit to herself Beat narrow heart, the song lots of people know it's a painful song It'll only say the truth it lasts for sad songs penny for a wish a wish won't make you a soldier A pretty kiss or a pretty face can't have it's way The tramps like us who were born to play Love is gone away and there's no one here now And there's nothing left to say but, oh, how I miss him, baby Oh, baby, come on and slip away come on, baby, why don't you slip away Love is gone away took the rings off my fingers And there's nothing left to say but, oh how, oh how I need him, baby Come on, baby, I need you baby oh, please don't slip away I need your loving so bad, babe please don't slip away
