Lyrics (fan transcription):

I know I say I'll go away
but then I don't, I come right back
and walk right smack into your lips
and turn all black and blue
and though I've seen the light so many times before
I've also figured out the light is just a switch
that I can turn on, I can turn off
please, oh please
when it's off, you cannot see, you cannot hear
even in your ear, saying
yo girl, don't make me take off my belt
don't make me take off my belt and smack you upside the head...

upside down a frown becomes a smile
and so he thinks I take it with a smile
double upside down a frown remains a frown
too bad he never checks the double upside down
when I'm doubled up on the floor
and I see a double him
giving me a double wham bam
yo girl, don't make me take off my belt
don't make me take off my belt and smack you upside the head...

chicken soup, mashed potatoes, gravy
orange juice, milk shakes, pudding
oatmeal, soft served ice cream
ain't it good that there's soft food
cause I couldn't eat very much else right now
they ask me how
well, hahaha, I fell down some stairs
yeah, hahaha, I bumped into a door
oh, I'm such a clutz
I say that very same thing to myself
all the time, I say
yo girl, can't you watch where you are?
you don't watch where the hell you're going, you're going to get yourself killed
you know, hey girl, can't you watch where you are?
you're going to get yourself killed...

I know I say I'll go away
but then I don't, I come right back
and walk right smack into your lips
and turn all black and blue
and though I've seen the light so many times before
I've also figured out the light is just a switch
that I can turn on, I can turn off
please, oh please
when it's off, you cannot see shit, you cannot hear shit
even in your ear, saying
yo girl, don't make me take off my belt
don't make me take off my belt and smack you upside the head...
