Lyrics:

You donít race me up the stairs
And you donít feed me fine white wine
You donít teach me games of cards
We donít go out at night to dine
You brush your teeth but once a week
You donít smell extraordinary
You never smile, you never laugh
You donít drink beer at noon with Harry

In the end you leave no trace
Ainít nothing but a pretty face
No heart involved and I donít care
Thatís why itís a perfect affair

Calvin and Hobbes bore you to death
You donít understand what I may think
You snore too loud at night in bed
You donít smoke and you never drink
My friends in Paris hate your guts
And you donít walk that lovely walk
Kissing you ainít no real pleasure
And you can never stop to talk

In the end you leave no trace
Ainít nothing but a warm embrace
No heart involved and I donít care
Thatís why itís a perfect affair

And when I play my favorite tapes
With music that reverberates
I catch the groove, I hit the beat
To sing along feels oh so sweet
But then you come to ride with me
And tell me I sing horribly

You donít like Italian food
Youíre always on your mobile phone
A language joke is lost on you
Youíve got no friends, youíre all alone
Youíre timid, shy, afraid of people
Youíre never cool, you're never lazy
I canít stand the way you laugh
And when you drive it makes me crazy

In the end these things will pass
Ainít nothing but a sexy ass
No heart involved and I donít care
Thatís why itís a perfect affair
And if I had to give advice
Iíd say that this is really nice
Have fun in bed, donít lose your heart
The way to travel really smart
