ain’t that the way lyrics – ani difranco

i love you
and you love me
and ain’t that the way
it’s supposed to be?

i swing my stick legs ’round at the root
and i pile drive each foot into a platform boot
’cause i’m up and i’m out and i’m bouncing off the walls
and i come when i’m called and you called

i got a super cute three piece suit
one piece for your body
one piece for your smile
one more little piece if you stay a while

yeah, ’cause i love you
and you love me
and ain’t that the way
it’s supposed to be?

i gotta beeline double time
leave my home sweet home for your honeycomb
then i show up steady, ready and proud
and i find i’ve forgotten how to talk out loud

isn’t it just like you
to bring me to my knees
in my brand new stockings
while the cat is out with my tongue?

isn’t it just like you
to bring me to my knees
in my brand new stockings?
yeah, love makes me feel so dumb

’cause i love you
and you love me, yeah
and ain’t that the way
it’s supposed to be?

’cause i love you
yes, and you love me
ain’t that the way
it’s supposed to be?
hey hey hey
