He: I want to live
She: I want to dye
He: in Omaha
She: my hair streaked blonde
He: where I can be
She: or instead
He: alone with me
She: I’ll tint
He: no misery
She: it red
He: ‘cos I’ve seen too much suffering in this city
She: I’ll get new clothes
He: Who really needs electricity
She: and change toothpaste
He: They did well without it in history
She: to new Toothy All-White

He: And I’m leaving
She: I’m doing
HE: and I’ll tell you why
She: all of this and
He: I’m leaving here now
She: I’ll tell you why

He: There was this girl
She: You see there is this guy
He: who followed me
She: So dignified
He: Where did I go
She: I know
He: She’d always know
She: he’s right
He:She tried to find me
She: for me

He: Find out where is the house I’m living in
She: Oh, where is he living?
He: She’s trying to find me but she never wins
She: I am always trying
He: And that accounts for the shape I’m in
She: to find him

He: But I’m leaving
She: But now with
He: And I’ll tell you
She: Toothy All-White
He: That I’m leaving you now
She: I’ll capture him

(She Brushes her teeth with Toothy All-White)

She: I’m done! Now I’m ready!
He: Who’s that girl with the...teeth??

He: How do you do!
I’ve tried to find you
I never knew, it’s really true
You really want me??

She: Don’t worry I know
He: You should have told...
She: I was too afraid to let you really know
but I’m glad that you let it show

He: Well I’m in love with
She: It never
He: I’m in love with
She: will fail
He: I’m in love with you
She: It’s Toothy All-White!


She: Now there’s this guy
He: What can I do?
She: Who follows me
He: Because there's no one who
She: He’s such a pest
He: Can compete
She: I need a rest
He: or compare with ... a....
She: I just detest him
So I think that I’ll move out to Omaha
He: Toothy All-White Girl
She: And buy me a house that he never saw
He: I know that house
She: and then I will go in and
He: and I’ve got the key
She: lock the door

He: But I’m in love with
She: I hate it!
He: I’m in love with
She: Toothy All-White
He: I’m in love with you
She: It bothers me.

He: Yes I’m in love with
She: I hate it!
He: I’m in love with
She: Toothy All-White
He: I’m in love with you
She: You bother me.
