The Lipstick Lesson
Haven’t you learned?
It will expose you every time
A lipstick-wearing “friend” in your bed
Sure-as-shootin’
You’re a dead guy

 

I’ve no sympathy for idiots or fools
There’s a few simple rules
You should know—them
I’ve no time for excuses or complaints
There are a few basic “aints”
And you do—them
The mischief color on the collar of your shirt
Try to pass it off as dirt
Come on, come on—
Come on, come on—

 

You are a dead guy, Baby         
What can I say?                                
It was the Fire Engine Red                     
That gave you away
You are a dead guy, Honey
Nothing to be done
Well, yeah, it might’ve made a difference
If this was the first one
If this was the first one                             

Ohhh oh oh…
I’ve no sympathy for idiots or fools
There’s a few simple rules
You should know—them
I’ve no time for excuses or complaints
There are a few basic “aints”
And you do—them
The mischief color on the collar of your shirt
Try to pass it off as dirt
Come on, come on—
Come on, come on—

 

The Lipstick Lesson
Haven’t you heard
It will bury you in no time
A lipstick-smearing session with Her
Sure-as-shootin’
You’re a dead guy

 

Ohhh oh oh…
I’ve no sympathy for idiots or fools
There’s a few simple rules
You should know—them
I’ve no time for excuses or complaints
There are a few basic “aints”
And you do—them
The mischief color on the collar of your shirt
Try to pass it off as dirt
Come on, come on—
Come on, come on—
Come on, come on—

 

You are dead guy, Baby
What can I say
It was the Lucious Cotton Candy
That gave you away
You are a dead guy, Honey
Nothing to be done
Well, yeah, it might’ve made a difference
If this was the first one
If this was the first one

 

A lipstick line-up, don’t you know
Takes no time at all—
How did that lipstick wind up
On your clothes?
Good answer: I don’t know

 

I’ve no sympathy for idiots or fools
There’s a few simple rules
You should know—them
I’ve no time for excuses or complaints
There are a few basic “aints”
And you do—them
The mischief color on the collar of your shirt
Try to pass it off as dirt
Come on, come on—
Come on, come on—
Come on, come on—
