“Mona Lisa”
I thought maybe we’d made a pact
but you gave in to foul temptations
Making all the wrong moves and the wrong decisions
Making lies up for all the right questions
Maybe I was just asking too much
I don’t think its likely
You’re just made from all the wrong stuff
Your bed’s getting made

Mona Lisa you’ve really done something
Done a number on all of my organs
Mona Lisa you’ve really done something
Done a number on all of my organs
na na na na na
na na na na na
na na na na na

I must say I commend you on all of your fire
Soaring high and drowning low
Full speed ahead you go with all of your heartache
It’s all greater, ten minutes to doomsday
All the while just showing your teeth
Smiling or growling, never sure I just wait and see
Your bed’s been made
Now go die in it.

Mona Lisa you’ve really done something
Done a number on all of my organs
Mona Lisa you’ve really done something
Done a number on all of my organs
na na na na na
na na na na na
na na na na na

I’ve been racking my brain, figuring out what to say
But it may be safe to bet
That the day might still come, I forgive what you’ve done
But it still hasn’t happened yet.

Your bed’s been made
Now go die in it.
Mona Lisa you’ve really done something
You’re the black ice on my road to wholesome
Mona Lisa you’ve really done something
Done a number on all of my organs
na na na na na
na na na na na
na na na na na
On all of my organs
na na na na na
na na na na na
na na na na na
