                     GIRLS IN WINDOWS

           MMMMMMM.... OOOOOOH.... AAAAHHHH....       

           YEAH.... etc.

 

                     ALONZO          

           THERE’S A GIRL I LOVE BUT SHE’S LOCKED

           UP IN A TOWER.

           SITTIN’ HOUR AFTER HOUR, WILTIN’ LIKE

           A FLOWER.

           PUT THERE BY NO OTHER

           THAN HER EVIL-LOVIN’ MOTHER!

 

                     GIRLS IN WINDOWS

           NOT HER BROTHER, BUT HER MOTHER?

           WHO COULD DO THAT TO ANOTHER?


                     ALONZO

           MAYBE SHE'S PROTECTING HER?

           MAYBE SHE'S CORRECTING HER?

 

                     GIRLS IN WINDOWS

           MAYBE SHE'S PERFECTING HER!

 

                     ALONZO
           NAH!

           PROB’LY WHAT’D SHE’D SAY: IT’S HER

           MOTHERLY DUTY

           BUT I JUST THINK SHE’S JEALOUS OF HER

           ‘CREDIBLE BEAUTY

           BUT IT AIN’T ABOUT HER LOOKS OR THE

           WAY SHE DRESSES

           WHAT’S MUSIC TO MY EYES ARE THOSE LONG

           CRAZY TRESSES!

 

                     GIRLS IN WINDOWS

           LOCKING UP HER KID! THAT’S KINDA

           WHACK!

           HOPE YOU’RE PLANNING ON A SNEAK

           ATTACK!

 

                     ALONZO

           SNEAK ATTACK, SNEAK ATTACK!

           FROM WHERE I’M STANDING, GIRL

           CAN’T REACH A SINGLE CURL

           CUZ YOU’RE TEN STORIES AWAY

           TEN STORIES AWAY!
