I gave a party 
 I said you could come 
 You showed up at your door 
 with all your leathers on 
 I said This must be wrong 
 It can't be right 
 How can you make love to me 
 dressed up for a fight? 
 Pick me up off the floor 
 No more -- 'cause you surely 
 can't be mine 
 Religion came 
 almost overnight 
 You were the high priest 
 I was the sacrifice 
 I said This must be wrong 
 This can't be right 
 Take off your stupid robe 
 and put down your knife 
 These ropes are getting tight 
 All right--you surely 
 can't be mine 
 I come home half dead 
 Late on a Saturday night 
 You stand on the bed and you 
 tell me you're learning to fly 
 I said Take off your boots 
 Take off your cape 
 Throw away your long johns 
 I ain't no Lois Lane 
 Before I get my kryptonite 
 All right--'cause you surely 
 can't be mine 
 I was ready for love 
 Big brass bed and all 
 I was ready for love 
 You said Let's talk about the war 
 I said What war? 
 What war? 
 Take off your clothes 
 and don't you worry me no more 
 I ain't no fly by night 
 All right--you surely 
 can't be mine
