Peach Tuxedo

from by The Good

lyrics

Make me your date for the prom
And then let's skip the prom
And head straight for the back roads
Let me dispense with the charm
We'll go right to that farm
And we'll show it abandonment

Cause I don't wanna face my friends in a peach tuxedo, oh no...
I don't even think I can dance, but I can do the lambido, oh yeah...

Show me your mom's kitchenette
But then please don't forget
To put that dog in the basement
Let's lock your sister outside
Then pretend that we died
And that your bedroom is heaven

I think I could be your family under these conditions, oh yeah...
Let me see if I can arouse, and not your dad's suspicions, oh no...
Oh yeah!

Won't we grow up soon enough?
We won't need all this stuff
When we're as old as my parents
What are you saving it for?
What if there's a world war
And I don't see any action?

Please don't make me die the last virgin, my bullets for freedom, oh no...
You want me to, I'll crawl in the dirt, I'll even wear that tuxedo, oh yeah...
Oh yeah!
