Hey there father I don't want to bother you,
But I've got a sin to confess
I'm just sixteen if you know what I mean
Do you mind if I take off my dress
I don't know where to start,
So let me get to the good parts
You might want to cross up your legs
I've got envy I've got greed,
Anything that you need and I'm not above having to beg

There was this boy who
Tore my heart in two
And I had to lay him eight feet under ground

Now all I need is someone to save me
'Cause I am going down
And what I need is someone to save me
'Cause I am going down
All the way down

Well hey there father there is just one other thing,
I have a simple request,
I hear you know god could you give him a nod in my direction,
I would be in your debt, perhaps
There is something that we could work out,
I noticed your breathing has started to change,
We could go in the back behind all
These stacks of bibles and get out of this cage

There was this boy who
Tore my heart in two
And I had to lay him eight feet under ground

Now all I need is someone to save me
'Cause I am going down
And what I need is someone to save me
'Cause I am going down
All the way down

I didn't wanna do it father but I caught him
With another woman in the bed I made
And so I put him in the grave
And now there's no one left around
To get me off when I want its a drag
The next day on the television they identified him
By the circumcision that I made
And now I'm on the run but wait
Why did I have to go and kill him
When he was the best I ever had

All I need is someone to save me
'Cause god I'm going down
And what I need is something to save me
'Cause god I'm going down
All the way down
