Death Cab for Cutie
That night Cutie called a cab, uh huh huh
(Baby, don't do it)
She left her East Side room so drab, uh huh huh
(Baby, don't do it)
She went out on the town
Knowin' it would make her lover frown
(Death-cab for Cutie)
(Death-cab for Cutie)
Someone's gonna make you pay your fare

The cab was racin' through the night, mm mm mm
(Baby, don't do it)
His eyes in the mirror, keepin' Cutie in sight, uh huh huh
(Baby, don't do it)
When he saw Cutie, it gave him a thrill
Don't you know, baby curves can kill
(Death-cab for Cutie)
(Death-cab for Cutie)
Someone's gonna make you pay your fare

Cutie, don't you play with fate
Don't leave your lover alone
If you go out on this date
His heart will turn to stone

Bad girl, Cutie, what have you done, uh huh huh
(Baby, don't do it)
Slippin' slidin' down-a Highway 31, mm mm mm
(Baby, don't do it)
The traffic lights changed from green to red
They tried to stop but they both wound up dead
(Death-cab for Cutie)
(Death-cab for Cutie)

Someone's gonna make you pay your fare
Someone's gonna make you pay your fare
Someone's gonna make you pay your fare

Someone's gonna make you pay your fare
Ah ooh...
