Hey, Doreen

These buttons are in the wrong holes again
Let’s straighten them out
Let’s straighten this whole damn mess we’ve gotten ourselves in 
This time didn’t go the way I was hoping
You’ve gotta get out, I’ve gotta get out
keep checking the mirrors, call me as soon as you can 

Oh yea
Oh yea
Oh yea
Can you keep it can you keep it in

Hey, Doreen we know what you’ve seen 
it’s the way, the way it had to be
Hey Doreen, we know what you’ve seen it’s the way , the way it had to be
(Cover your tracks you know you can’t take it back)

Can you keep it can you keep it in?

The sun’s coming out, did you make it in time?
If anyone asks you, you weren’t there I’ve found the perfect alibi

A black dahlia blooms and then she dies
Lie after lie- it’s what we do best and share in common, you and I 

Oh yea
Oh yea
Oh yea
Can you keep it can you keep it in

Hey, Doreen we know what you’ve seen 
it’s the way, the way it had to be
All your plans, just a nickel in your hand
It’s the way, the way it had to be
Hey, Doreen we know what you’ve seen 
it’s the way, the way it had to be
(Cover your tracks you know you can’t take it back)

Both of you can try to find a place to hide
you can try, but they’ll find me
Both of you can try to find a place to hide
you can try, but they’ll find me
Both of you can try to find a place to hide
you can try, but they’ll find me
Oh
You can’t take it back

Hey, Doreen we know what you’ve seen 
it’s the way, the way it had to be
All your plans, just a nickel in your hand
It’s the way, the way it had to be
(Cover your tracks you know you can’t take it back)
