I said I wouldn't hit her, so she headed to he back
and I said, "Do you always sleep with your ashtray?"
and she said, "No, that's just there to keep you at bay"
she said
"I gotta tell you something cause your my only friend
I prefer girls cause they can't knock me up
you see, last month I got drunk and miscarried"
and I said, "Huh"
she said
"I'm sick of all the drink and I'm sick of all the drugs
I'm sick of being sick, I'm so sick of being sick"
so, I said
"You sound like
my kind of girl"
