LyricsEdit

What do you need to get high for when your baby's so to die for?
Quit your job, let's make a ride for it

If you want it supersize, I can do that for ya
If you want it double fries, I can do that for ya
If you want a good surprise, I can do that for ya
If you won't believe your eyes, I can do that for ya

What do you need to get high for when your baby's so to die for?
Quit your job, let's make a ride for
It's us against the world

If you want a cola, I can make it colder
If you want a bad girl, nobody's bolder
And if you want the queen of New York
Then you better call me, call me

If you want some dirty lies, I can do that for ya
Watch me dance for other guys, I can do that for ya
Tell you everything's alright, I can do that for ya
Never ever leave your side, I can do that for ya

What do I need to get high for?
There ain't no reason to cry for
Quit your job, let's make a life
Boy, it's us against the world

If you want a cola, I can make it colder
If you want a bad girl, nobody's bolder
And if you want the queen of New York
Then you better call me, call me

Lights (lights), sights (sights)
Buy me Coca-Cola in the middle of the night
Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Lights (lights), sights (sights)
Buy me Coca-Cola in the middle of the night
Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah

What do you need to get high for when your baby's so to die for?
Quit your job, let's make a ride for
It's us against the world

If you want a cola, I can make it colder
If you want a bad girl, nobody's bolder
And if you want the queen of New York
Then you better call me, call me

If you want a cola, I can make it colder
If you want a bad girl, nobody's bolder
And if you want the queen of New York
Then you better call me, call me
