and if you think a lot you think you know
and if you drink a lot you're really drunk
and if you think you suck you really suck
and when you're hot you're hot
i'm a hermaphrodite but that's beside the point

i have friends who are kind of obnoxious
but once you get to know them they're OK
i do secret things when i'm alone in my room
but exactly what i will not say
there are things that i often do in public
but they're embarrassing
i do secret things when i'm alone in my room
because i'm into that thing
