i didn’t have the nerve to say no lyrics – blondie

you got ants in your pants
i don’t understand
i don’t trust a blink of your eyes
you’re a viper and love’s your keeper
you said something profane and went for a vein
but in spite of your “delicate touch”
i should have known as much, another bleeder
i didn’t have the nerve to say no
i didn’t have the nerve to say no
you caught me surprised and my will resigned
torture the minds of them all
you’re a brain drain you’d better beat it
i’m following lines
the blind leads the blind
so hang me or grant me a stay
you better cut me loose or hand me a noose

i didn’t have the nerve to say no
i didn’t have the nerve to say no
no, no, no, no
(repeat)
you said something profane and went for a vein
but in spite of your “delicate touch”
i should have known as much, another bleeder
there’s no end to the problem of a bad situation
complication
no, no, no, no, ah
there’s no end to the problem and frustration
i need a vacation
no no no no ah
and i know i couldn’t
and i know that i couldn’t say no
