Nice girls, not one with a defect, cellophane shrink-wrapped, so correct
Red dogs under illegal legs, she looks so good that he gets down and begs

She is watching the detectives, “ooh, he’s so cute”, she is watching the detectives
When they shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, they beat him up until the teardrops start
But he can’t be wounded ’cause he’s got no heart

Long shot at that jumping sign, invisible shivers running down my spine
Cut to baby taking off her clothes, close-up of the sign that says “We never close”

He snatches at you and you match his cigarette, she pulls the eyes out with a face like a magnet
I don’t know how much more of this I can take, she’s filing her nails while they’re dragging the lake

She is watching the detectives, “ooh, he’s so cute”, she is watching the detectives
When they shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, they beat him up until the teardrops start
But he can’t be wounded ’cause he’s got no heart

You think you’re alone until you realize you’re in it,
Now fear is here to stay, love is here for a visit
Call it instant justice when it’s past the legal limit,
Someone’s scratching at the window, I wonder who is it?

The detectives come to check if you belong to the parents
Who are ready to hear the worst about their daughter’s disappearance
Though it nearly took a miracle to get you to stay
It only took my little fingers to blow you away

Just like watching the detectives, don’t get cute, it’s just like watching the detectives
I get so angry when the teardrops start, but he can’t be wounded ’cause he’s got no heart
Watching the detectives

It’s just like watching the detectives, watching the detectives
Watching the detectives, watching the detectives, watching the detectives
