lyrics

Dear Georges,
I’m writing this letter to tell you that it’s over.
I found it. Finally.
It wasn’t where you said it would be.
It wasn’t under the bed (where you said it had fallen).
It wasn’t in the cupboard, either (where you said it would be safe).
You little tease. I asked you with a pretty pretty please.

: Aidez-moi s'il vous plaît?
: ( )
: Aidez-moi s'il vous plaît?
: Non.
: Aidez-moi s'il vous plaît?
: Non.
: Aidez-moi s'il vous plaît?
: Non.
: Aidez-moi s'il vous plaît?
: ( )

Give it back. Give it back.
Give it back, you monster.
Squeaky clean, all pristine,
I want it back, you thief!
Where’d it go? Where’d it go?
Give it back to me.
Squeaky clean, all pristine,
I want it back, you thief!

Vous petit monstre!
Vous petit monstre!
Vous petit monstre!
Vous petit monstre!

But please don’t worry, Georges
My Dear Sweet Georges
I won’t tell a soul (I promise)
About the way it’s somewhat misshapen now.
The way the scent of flowers makes it rot.
The way it aches and bleeds more often than not.
The way it’s managed to grow horns.
Oh, please don’t worry, Georges.
I’m keeping it locked away
in a box of thorns.

: Répondez s'il vous plaît?
: ( )
: Répondez s'il vous plaît?
: Non.
: Répondez s'il vous plaît?
: Non.
: Répondez s'il vous plaît?
: Non.
: Répondez s'il vous plaît?
: ( )
