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