slave girl lyrics – goo goo dolls

let me tell you ’bout a girl i know
i drag her around wherever i go
this little woman drives me insane
she’s tied to my ankle with a ball and chain

for sixteen years she’s been hangin’ around
try’n’ to bury me in a hole in the ground
well i think it’s time that i even the score
there’s only room for one in this cage o’ yours

don’t save me, when i am startin’ to drown
don’t use me, when you don’t want me around
just be my slave girl, ’cause that’s all i need
so take a little step back to the stone age with me, go

well i hear a strange noise as i lie in my bed
i feel a lotta water drippin’ on my head
i look around tried to see through my hair
you left me alone, but do you think i care?

’cause you move me when i was taking my time
you abuse me when i am idle lying
you try to warn me of the dj’s sign
so watch out, go

well you got me in the bondage
of another age
you drive me to destruction in a primitive way
i cant control my instincts when i hear her say
“just turn around and see me if you lose your way”

so tell my chain gang
that you are along with me
i will be your caveman
it’s basic as can be
i am not a sane man
i’m just god of misery
