This is a calling card
Maybe it will be a farewell note
The poison fountain pen
Now requires the antidote

And if I avert your gaze
And I should become a shrinking flower
Just punch me on the arm
This could be our finest hour

Till now this was my view
But I'm counting on you
How am I ever going to make you see?
Nothing in this ugly world comes easily
I want you to be

My lovely hooligan
Come by and smash my pane
Till I can see right through
My little blue window

This is a fingerprint
Maybe you will feel a fond caress
But when you start to speak
Are you tempted to confess?

Well, I was a gloomy soul
Never thought I'd see a brighter day
The dark interior
Blows those silver clouds away

Till now this was my view
But I'm counting on you
How am I ever going to make you see?
Nothing in this ugly world comes easily
I want you to be

My lovely hooligan
Come by and smash my pane
Till I can see right through
My little blue window

My lovely hooligan
Come by and smash my pane
Till I can see right through
My little blue window

My lovely hooligan
Come by and smash my pane
Till I can see right through
My little blue window
