"Tango"

Fall madly in love? Not me!
I'll resist with all my might
Bring me melons out of season
Then we'll tango through the night

Let me watch you paint your nails
In dim vague bathroom light
Put on your dancing shoes
Then we'll tango through the night

I'll bring you a dozen roses
Tease your nipples with my bite
As you check your seams are straight
Then we'll tango through the night

Check my back for blackheads
Before we take off on our flight
I'll spoon rice pudding to your mouth
Then we'll tango through the night

Fall madly in love? Not me!
I'll resist with all my might
Bring me a bleeding sunset
Then we'll tango through the night
