lyrics

If you think you're slumming
when you're coming with me -
Don't do me any favours
If you think you're slumming
when you're coming with me -
Don't do me any favours
If you think you're slumming
when you're coming with me -
Don't do me any favours

I never get to meet your friends or folks
(Don't do me any favours)
And I'm the butt of all your jokes
(Don't do me any favours)
You talk down to me like a clapped-out fool
(Don't do me any favours)
If you're so clever and cutting and cool
(Don't do me any favours)


If you think you're slumming
when you're coming with me -
Don't do me any favours
If you think you're slumming
when you're coming with me -
Don't do me any favours
If you think you're slumming
when you're coming with me -
Don't do me any favours

Well you may be pretty and you might be young
(Forget it !) - Don't do me any favours
But you think the sun shines out of your bum
(Forget it !) - Don't do me any favours
You're so sarcastic, ha ha ha
(Forget it !) - Don't do me any favours
Just who the hell do you think you are ?
(Forget it !) - Don't do me any favours

If you think you're slumming
when you're coming with me -
Don't do me any favours
If you think you're slumming
when you're coming with me -
Don't do me any favours
If you think you're slumming
when you're coming with me -
Don't do me any favours

Talk, talk, talk... Talk, talk, talk...
Bitch, bitch, bitch... Talk, talk, talk...

Talk, talk, talk... Talk, talk, talk...
Bitch, bitch, bitch... Talk, talk, talk...

If you think you're coming
when you're slumming with me...
Forget it.
