Lyrics

Beauty shrieks "Beast in booties"
Coming home so lay the table
Look at you calling shots
Call you over under out

I was under, backwards, forwards
Holding hands in the dark
Kissing some, kissing cousins
Kissing this in cover
Kissing cousins, kissing that

Over under out
Over under out
Over under out

CHORUS
  You can't talk
  You can't see me drowning
  You can't talk
  I don't see you swimming
  You can't talk
  You want go your way
  You can't talk
  I know you don't love me

Look at this heart's a poppin'
Guess it's over
Crazy action mine's a breakin'
Guess it's over
(Here we go)

CHORUS

Oh-oh-oh 

Beauty shrieks 'Beast in booties'
Coming home so lay the table
Look at you calling shots
Call you over under out
I was under, backwards, forwards
Holding hands in the dark
Kissing some, kissing cousins
Kissing this

CHORUS (twice)

You can't talk (twice)
I know you don't love me (repeat ad inf)
