My temperature is rising
There is no sense in fighting
The feeling overcoming me now
I feel so immersed
In her complex curse
I just wanna get up and shout

Woah ho ho ho ho
She drives me crazy
Woah ho ho ho ho
There's no escaping

Her eyes look in so deep
I see them in my sleep
I hate being the sheep in the wrong crowd
But don't trust a thing she says
By the way that she behaves
She's a compulsive liar who wants things her

Way hey hey hey hey
She drives me crazy
Oh ho ho ho ho
There's no escaping

I used to be a lyricist but I'm all out of words
She plays with your feelings makes you feel like you made her hurt
But underneath all that acting she's concealing a smirk
So if she comes your way I advise you give her a wide berth
Don't you suppose it all arose because she chose to play with your feelings by altering emotions
Now everything's outa motion
Her core is made of stone but on the outside huh she is molten
Their ain't no faulting her appearance but wait listen up
Because her second face needs some extra makeup
Shut up,
That's what she'd say huh yeah

Woah ho ho ho ho

Dum ba dum ba ba da dum ba ba bum di dum boo dum
Ba boo da bay ey de ah dam zew da zoo ba da bu dum dow
Ye day ya da da ye day ya da da da da da da day ba biba da bow
Bow wow wow wow

Woah yeah,
She drives me crazy
There's no escaping 'scaping no
She drives me crazy there no escaping she drives me
