If your mercenary tactic's gonna work on me

Loving on the front line â??til the money runs out
Your finger's on the trigger, baby pull it and see
If your mercenary tactic's gonna work on me

You're so very unnecessarily mercenary
You're so very unnecessarily mercenary
So very unnecessarily mercenary
You're so very unnecessarily mercenary
You're so very unnecessarily mercenary
You're so very unnecessarily mercenary
You're so very unnecessarily mercenary
You're so very unnecessarily mercenary
