Lyrics

Girlfriend in a coma

I know, I know - it's serious

Girlfriend in a coma I know, I know - it's really serious

There were times when I could have murdered her But, you know, I would hate anything to happen to her No, I don't want to see her

Do you really think she'll pull through? Do you really think she'll pull through?

Girlfriend in a coma I know, I know - it's serious

Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye Baby goodbye

There were times when I could have strangled her But, you know, I would hate anything to happen to her Would you please let me see her?!

Do you really think she'll pull through? Do you really think she'll pull through?

Let me whisper my last goodbyes I know - it's serious...
