Lyrics

I turn the music down But I don't know why This is my house

I turn the music down But I don't know why This is my house

The best friend on the payroll No, no, no It's not gonna work out It's not gonna work out No, no, no, no

The best friend on the payroll Oh, no, no, no It's not gonna work out It's not gonna work out

More breakfast in bed And I'll bring the paper in later

The best friend on the payroll Oh, no, no, no It's not gonna work out It's not gonna work out No, no, no, no

The best friend on the payroll Oh, no, no, no It's not gonna work out It's not gonna work out

More breakfast in bed And I'll bring the paper in later

The best friend on the payroll No, no, no It's not gonna work out It's not gonna work out No, no, no, no

The best friend on the payroll No, no, no, no It's not gonna work out It's not gonna work out
