verse
It was the summer of 93, I was down
Did too much thinking, too much drinking
Dishwater brown, tall and fine
You had a simple thing about you
Couldn’t live without you
We took the D train for uptown, and never looked down
But that was then, this is now, you drove me insane
But I didn’t complain

chorus
We had our thing now we’re done
But sometime fuck just for fun
And it’s real cool’

And it feels good
Or at least it should

verse
Get out on your own girl, that’s what they say
I’ve been through feminist statistics, a chick who said go holistic
They don’t know how sweet you sound when you say
“Hey girl, what time you comin round?”
I’d work like a slave for it, turn all depraved for it
Swim shore to shore for it, go out like a whore for it
When I’m down I’m down
What time you want me ‘round

chorus
We had our thing now we’re done
But sometime fuck just for fun
And it’s real cool’
And it feels good
Or at least it should

verse
Check it it was Friday
Rent was due on Monday
He came home with no pay
I said I’ll go my way.
But I’d fell deeply
completely
since I don’t know when
This happens over and over again

chorus
We had a thing now we’re done
But sometime fuck just for fun
And it’s real cool’
And it feels good
Or at least it should
