SO SOPHISTICATED

Straighten up my bow tie
Flash in my tuxedo
Through rolling low-fi
Iʼm gonna trash my alter ego

Put on your new heels
Your hairdo up and done
Sexy is as sexy feels
Ten weeks at number one

You are so glamorous
Woman, youʼre so fine
Oh letʼs get amorous
Your loving is divine

Youʼre so sophisticated
Youʼve got me captivated
My pulse is elevated
Youʼre so sophisticated [Yes]

Half-past a diamond
Deluxe and real cute
Donʼt mind me rhyming
We gotta spend all of this loot

Order up the drinks at nine
Then weʼre leaving here by ten
We hit the Casbah last night
Well, weʼre doing it again

Oh, youʼre so glamorous
Ooh, you fit the bill
Oh letʼs get amorous
ʻCause youʼre dressed to kill

Youʼre so sophisticated
Youʼve got me captivated
My pulse is elevated
Youʼre so sophisticated

Youʼre so sophisticated [You’re so sophisticated]
Youʼve got me captivated [You’ve got me, you’ve got me captivated]
My pulse is elevated [Elevated]
Youʼre so sophisticated [You’re so sophisticated]

Youʼre so sophisticated [You’re so sophisticated]
Youʼve got me captivated [You’ve got me, you’ve got me captivated]
My pulse is elevated
Youʼre so sophisticated [You’re so, you’re so]

Youʼre so sophisticated [You’re so, you’re so, you’re so]
Youʼre so sophisticated [You’re so, you’re so sophisticated]

ON THE REBOUND

He put you on a pedestal just to knock you off
Made you a queen just to steal your gold tiara
Youʼre all dolled up tonight just to be stood up
And watch the river run the color of your new mascara

You could love him or you could leave him
If he says itʼs over, believe him

(Hey!) On the rebound
(Hey!) Are you on the rebound?
(Hey!) If youʼre on the rebound, I will never let you down
(Hey!) On the rebound
(Hey!) Are you on the rebound?
(Hey!) If youʼre on the rebound, I wonʼt let you touch the ground

You hang onto a photograph of the two of you
Like itʼs a portrait from a million dollar royal wedding
Ainʼt nothing sacred now, you could rip it up
It ainʼt your fault youʼve got an anniversary worth forgetting

(Hey!) On the rebound
(Hey!) Are you on the rebound?
(Hey!) If youʼre on the rebound, I will never let you down
(Hey!) On the rebound
(Hey!) Are you on the rebound?
(Hey!) Catch you on the rebound you will never touch the ground

You need a man whoʼs going to treat you well
And make you feel you are secure
Why donʼt you call me and you can try me
Iʼll give you loving slow and sure

You could love him or you could leave him
If he says itʼs over, believe him
Why donʼt you call me and you can try me
Iʼll give you loving slow and sure

(Hey!) On the rebound
(Hey!) Are you on the rebound?
(Hey!) Catch you on the rebound I will never let you down
(Hey!) On the rebound
(Hey!) Are you on the rebound?
(Hey!) Catch you on the rebound, you will never touch the ground

(Hey!) On the rebound
(Hey!) Are you on the rebound?
(Hey!) Catch you on the rebound I will never let you down
(Hey!) On the rebound
(Hey!) Are you on the rebound?
(Hey!) Catch you on the rebound, you will never touch the ground
On the rebound, you will never touch the ground 

SHE'S MY GO-TO

She’s my go to
She’s my go to
She’s my go to
She’s my go to

See the gal in paisley
Sheʼs utterly amazing
And the antidote to keep me sane
When I cannot function
And I need to make that junction
She can put me on a higher plane

I donʼt give a damn about her reputation
It hurts whenever weʼre apart
She put a spell on me without an incantation
And found a way to heal my heart

Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah!]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah!]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah!]

Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah!]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah!]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah!]

She’s my go to
She’s my go to
She’s my go to
She’s my go to

I need an effective
Undercover love detective
Not the kind that you can advertise
Hereʼs the coup de gras, yʼall
When Iʼve got insomnia
She delivers all I fantasize

I donʼt give a damn about her reputation
It hurts whenever weʼre apart
She put a spell on me without an incantation
And found a way to heal my heart

Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]

Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]

[spoken] I donʼt give a damn about her reputation
It hurts whenever weʼre apart
She put a spell on me without an incantation
And found a way to heal my heart

Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]
Sheʼs my go to [Ah! Ah! Ah! Go to]

OUR LOVE IS KNOWN BY NAME

Love has a different meaning for everyone
Even when words we use are the same
I would regret it if I never said it everyday
Our love is known by name

Our love is known by name
Our love is known by name

Beauty like yours is simply astonishing
You are the picture, you are the frame
’Cause itʼs heaven whenever you hold me
That will not change
Our love is known by name

Our love is known by name
Our love is known by name
Our love is known by name
Our love is known by name

Stars up in the cosmos wish they shone as bright as our love
Jealous of our distant light
Every kiss makes our love more and more immortal
Every magic night

I would regret it if I never said it everyday
Our love is known by name

Our love is known by name [Our love is our love/Our love is our love]
Our love is known by name [Our love is our love/Our love is our love]
Our love is known by name [Our love is our love/Our love is our love]
Our love is known by name [Our love is our love/Our love is our love]

Our love is known by name [Our love is our love/Our love is our love]
Our love is known by name [Our love is our love/Our love is our love]
Our love is known by name [Our love is our love/Our love is our love]
Our love is known by name [Our love is our love/Our love is our love]

HUCKLEBERRY FINN

I was born with eyesight
Blinded by the light
I was raised with wisdom
Couldnʼt hold it tight
I misread my fortune
Couldnʼt live it right
Now Iʼm on the doorstep of a sleepless night

Where do I begin?
Iʼm just waiting on my magic friend
To pull me from the water when I canʼt swim
Iʼm just waiting on my own Jim
And I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn

I was oh so selfish
In my gilded age
Begging for a spotlight
Fretting on the stage
You could call it foolish
Call it my blue phase
Never knew my weakness
Only counted days

Where do I begin?
Iʼm just waiting on my magic friend
To pull me from the water when I canʼt swim
Iʼm just waiting on my own Jim
And I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn
Iʼm just waiting on my magic friend
To pull me from the river ʻcause I canʼt swim
Iʼm just waiting on my own Jim
And I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn

Iʼm just treading water
Iʼm just treading water
Iʼm just treading water
Iʼm just treading water
Iʼm just treading water

Where do I begin?
Iʼm just waiting on my magic friend
To pull me from the water when I canʼt swim
Iʼm just waiting on my own Jim
And I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn

[I was born with eyesight] Iʼm just waiting on my magic friend
[Blinded by the light]
[I was raised with wisdom] To pull me from the river ʻcause I canʼt swim
[But I couldnʼt hold it tight]
[I misspent my fortune] Iʼm just waiting on my own Jim
[Couldnʼt save it right]
[Now Iʼm on the doorstep] And I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn
[Now I’m on the doorstep]

Iʼm just waiting on my magic friend
To pull me from the water when I canʼt swim
Iʼm just waiting on my own Jim
And I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn

Iʼm just waiting on my magic friend
To pull me from the river ʻcause I canʼt swim
Iʼm just waiting on my own Jim
I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn

I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn
I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn
Yeah, I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn
I guess that makes me Huckleberry Finn

YOUR MAJESTIC REJECTION

The majestic way you said, “Iʼm in love
With somebody new.”
The sarcastic way you told me Iʼm still good
Just no good for you
Your majestic rejection

The majestic way you dismissed our love
Thatʼs a grudge
And the arsenic lace you applied like lipstick
For that final kiss from you
Your majestic rejection [That’s what it is]

When I look behind me
All I see are memories
But three days from now
Well all thereʼll be
Are these vicious memories
They bring me back
Oh, they bring me back to you

[Listen] When I look behind me
All I see are memories
Three years from now
Well, all there will be
Are these vicious memories
They bring me back
Yeah, they bring me back to you
Your majestic rejection

Bring me back to you
Rejection
Your majestic rejection
They bring me back to you

SUPERMODELS WITH GATLING GUNS

Your sister said, “So glad to meet you.
Welcome back to Macchu Picchu.”
I like your dress, I guess itʼs see-through
She got the plans from R2-D2

The village has been overrun by
Supermodels with gatling guns
That hold the score at nil to one
Supermodels with gatling guns
Gatling guns

El Jefe was a loyal deadhead
Until he met the swimsuit redhead
The comrades moaned and how they fretted
When he led the coup with bed head

The village has been overrun by
Supermodels with gatling guns
That hold the score at nil to one
Supermodels with gatling guns
With gatling guns

Letʼs fall in love to the sound of armies
Marching down the runway
Letʼs fall in love in the latest line of fatigues
By Stella McCartney

I bought your sis some silver slippers
The currency is sweatshop zippers
The USO sent camoʼed strippers
The guerrillas became big tippers

Now the village has been overrun by
Supermodels with gatling guns
That hold the score at nil to one
Supermodels with gatling guns
Gatling guns

Gatling guns
Gatling guns
Gatling guns
Gatling guns
Gatling guns
Gatling guns

SAFFRON DANCER

Scorpio stings your angel heart
Tearing the fairy tale apart
I heard the boys were at your door
Panting ‘cause they wanted more
Silky words tumble from your lips
Launching a thousand motherships

Oh, Saffron Dancer
Saffron Dancer
Saffron Dancer
Saffron Dancer

Cowrie shells drop one-by-one
Your neck is bare in the ivory sun
I heard the girl was living posh
In spaghetti straps and spaghetti squash
Your look will lock on the very next
Soul that canʼt resist your sex

Oh, Saffron Dancer
Saffron Dancer
Saffron Dancer
Saffron Dancer

Heaven is settling in your eyes
Heaven is settling in your eyes
Heaven is settling in your eyes
Covered in petals and paradise

Oh, Saffron Dancer

Heaven is settling in your eyes
Heaven is settling in your eyes
Heaven is settling in your eyes
Covered in petals and paradise

Oh, Saffron Dancer
Saffron Dancer
Saffron Dancer
Saffron Dancer

AIRPORT KISSES

I fly so frequently but it ainʼt about the miles
I miss you terribly and I canʼt replace your smiles
You know Iʼm going to be back home
Before you know Iʼve even gone
I didnʼt know something so sad could be so delicious
But nothingʼs as bittersweet as your airport kisses

The home we have to keep is the home within our hearts
I know youʼre losing sleep when my flight departs
You know Iʼm going to be back home
Before you know Iʼve even gone
I didnʼt know something so sad could be so delicious
But nothingʼs as bittersweet as your airport kisses
Nothing can leave me weak like your airport kisses

You know Iʼm going to be back home
Before you know Iʼve even gone
I didnʼt know something so sad could be so delicious
But nothingʼs as bittersweet as your airport kisses
Nothing can leave me weak like your airport kisses
Nothing makes me complete like your airport kisses

Like your airport kisses [You know I’m coming home]
Like your airport kisses [Save me some of those]
Like your airport kisses [You know I’m coming home]
Like your airport kisses [Save me some of those]
Like your airport kisses [You know I’m coming home]
Like your airport kisses [Save me some of those]
Like your airport kisses [You know I’m coming home]
Like your airport kisses [Save me some of those]

[You know I’m coming home]
[Save me some of those]
[You know I’m coming home]
[Save me some of those]
[You know I’m coming home]
[Save me some of those]
[You know I’m coming home]
[Save me some of those]
[You know I’m coming home]
[Save me some of those]

A MIRACLE IS ON THE WAY

L.A.ʼs got the groove and moving donʼt you want to make the scene
Velvet curtains pull back revealing lovers on the screen
Take my hand and feel the rhythm
Racing from heart to heart [heart to heart]

If you got the tail by the tiger [Tail by the tiger]
Itʼs not going to escape
If you got the music inside
A miracle is on the way

Putting up a prayer from downtown
[Putting up a prayer, uh, a prayer]
Do you ever dare to get down
[Do you ever dare?]

If you got the tail by the tiger [Tail by the tiger]
Itʼs not going to escape
If you got the music inside [Music inside, yeah]
A miracle is on the way

The boulevard is buzzing and fussing the people donʼt want to leave
Youʼve been dazzling all night and now itʼs time for you to believe
Close on in for a little contact
Pulsing from heart to heart [heart to heart]

If you got the tail by the tiger [Tail by the tiger]
Itʼs not going to escape
If you got the music inside [Music inside, yeah]
A miracle is on the way

Putting up a prayer from downtown
[Putting up a prayer, uh, a prayer]
Do you ever dare to get down
[Do you ever dare?]

If you got the tail by the tiger [Tail by the tiger]
Itʼs not going to escape
If you got the music inside [Music inside, yeah]
A miracle is on the way

If you got the tail by the tiger [Tail by the tiger]
Itʼs not going to escape
If you got the music inside [Music inside, yeah]
A miracle is on the way

[A miracle]
[A miracle]
[A miracle is on the way]
A miracle is on the way!

[A miracle]
[A miracle]
[A miracle is on the way]
A miracle is on the way!
