Original video
I don't want to hear this, same again...

Oh, checking out, baby
You know it's time to change
Checking out, checking out
This could be the first time

Your time has come
There's no turning back
'Cause you choose to follow
And now you're one of the pack, yeah
(But you're never gonna give up the strength)
To change the face of a nation
(No, you're never gonna bring this to an end)
No, you don't need an education
If she gets in again
Well, people that would be the end
You could say that I'm running
But I've seen you coming, checking out

Check, check, check, checking out
Checking out, baby, yeah, yeah
Checking out, check, checking out
Checking out, baby, ooh-ooh...
Checking out, check, checking out
C'mon, I'm checking out, baby, yeah, yeah
Checking out, check, checking out
Checking out, baby, yeah, yeah

To be in love
Well, you know these days
That just ain't enough
One day you might wake up, yeah
And find you're staring down the barrel of a gun
(I don't wanna fake it)
Oh, just for the sake of the money
(I just wanna break it down)
You don't need to touch me, honey
You could make my day but you choose to stay
You could say that I'm running
But I've seen you coming, checking out

Check, check, check, checking out
Checking out, baby, yeah, yeah
Checking out, check, checking out
C'mon and check it out, baby, ooh-ooh
Checking out, check, checking out
(C'mon, c'mon)
Checking out, baby, yeah, yeah
Checking out, check, checking out
(Check it out)
Checking out, baby, yeah, yeah

Do-do-do-do-do-do...

You can send your sons away
To fight for the moneymakers
But the only money made
Belongs to the undertakers
You could make my day
But you choose to stay
You could say that I'm running
But I've seen you coming, checking out

Whoa, yeah!
Checking out, check, checking out
Checking out, baby
Check it out, yeah, yeah
Checking out, check, checking out
(Check it out, check it out)
Checking out, baby, yeah, yeah

I don't wanna fake it
I just wanna break it down
I don't wanna fake it
I just wanna
(Checking out, check, check it out)
Check it out, baby

I don't wanna fake
I just wanna check it out
(Whoo-hoo, check it out)
