LYRICS

Lalalala, lalala-A

She meticulously curls her hair, her hair, her hair, her long blond hair
Applies mascara with the greatest care, with care, with care, the utmost care
She puts on lipstick that is scarlet red, she’s already fairly off her head
Fishnet stockings and a bottle of wine, she’s fine, she’s fine, she thinks she’s fine

Girls, you better watch out, schizophrenic playboys
Who cannot control their toys, lalalala
Girls, you better watch out (ah ah ah), schizophrenic playboys (ah ah ah)
Who cannot control their toys (ah ah ah), lalalala

(out, out, out, out, out, out)

Baby baby will you come with me, with me, with me, please come with me
I’ll take you places that you’d rather be, to be, to be, to come with me
Driving faster now in his car, now she knows that she has gone too far
In the morning she is in his bed, his bed, his bed, her eyes are red

Girls, you better watch out (ah ah ah), schizophrenic playboys (ah ah ah)
Who cannot control their toys (ah ah ah), lalalala
Girls, you better watch out (ah ah ah), schizophrenic playboys (ah ah ah)
Who cannot control their toys (ah ah ah), lalalala

(out, out, out)
(out) I’m in, (out) I’m out, (out) I’m out
(out) I’m in, (out) I’m out, (out) I’m out

Boys you better watch out (ah ah ah), schizophrenic playgirls (ah ah ah)
They cannot control their curls (ah ah ah), lalalala
Girls, you better watch out (ah ah ah), schizophrenic playboys (ah ah ah)
Who cannot control their toys (ah ah ah), lalalala
Lalalala, lalalalA, lalalala
