x-offender lyrics – blondie

[spoken]
i saw you standing on the corner, you looked so big and fine.
i really wanted to go out with you, so when you smiled,
i laid my heart on the line
you read me my rights and then you said “let’s go” and nothing more
i thought of my nights, and how they were
they were filled with

i know you wouldn’t go
you’d watch my heart burst then you’d step in
i had to know so i asked
you just had to laugh

we sat in the night with my hands cuffed at my side
i look at your life and your style
i wanted nothing more
i know you wouldn’t go
you’d watch my heart burst then you’d step in
i had to know so i asked
you just had to laugh

walking the line, you were a marksman
told me that law, like wine, is ageless
public defender
you had to admit
you wanted the love of a s*x offender

i know you wouldn’t go
you’d watch my heart burst then you’d step in
i had to know so i asked
you just had to laugh

my vision in blue, i call you from inside my cell
and in the trial, you were there
with your badge and rubber boots

i think all the time how i’m going to perpetrate love with you
and when i get out, there’s no doubt i’ll be s*x offensive to you
