The Deal

from by The Good

lyrics

Your grandmother said,
Don't give your milk away or he'll never buy the cow.
So what do you do?
You ask me up to belly up, insist you're not for sale anyhow.

Fine by me, so long as you mean it.
Trust me, pal, I've seen it before.

Do you love me?
Do you like me?
Do you really feel okay about the deal?
Why do you want to kiss me only
If you don't want to be my only?
Girl, are you for real?

It's different for girls, but you won't admit it.
You brag you're man's best friend.
But when I kiss you, you close your eyes to fantasize.
I wonder who you see in your head.

Someone you know?
Maybe just an actor?
Am I just your back door man?

Do you love me?
Do you like me?
Do you really feel okay?
Are you for real?
Why did you want to only kiss me
When I said I want to be only friends,
Then change the deal?

Was this your idea or mine?
Let's just do this one more time?

Do you love me?
Do you like me?
Do you really feel okay about the deal?
Why do you want to kiss me only
If you don't want to be my only?
Girl, are you for real?

Do you love me?
Do you like me?
Do you really feel okay about the deal?
(Do you lie?)
Why do you want to see me crazy
Can it be the only way we know
We can feel?
