lyrics

You smoked all my cigarettes again
You've taken all my money just to go and see your friends
That doesn't bother me at all
Because you're not the boss of me

I don't eat cupcakes and I don't drink cups of tea
I'm undomesticated unlike your mammy's mean eyed cat so please
Don't try to make me change my ways
Because you're not the boss of me

There's a woman out there lurking in the crowd trying to hold someone's hand
You give her the chat, you know she'll pounce and make a mouse out of a man
Don't you ever let that woman steal your dreams
Just tell her you're not the boss of me

You read my letters, you invade my privacy
And then you shoot me down because you don't like what you see
I'll drink myself an ocean, throw up on your settee
Because you're not the boss of me

You smoked all my cigarettes again (you smoked all my cigarettes)
You've taken all my money just to go and see your friends
That doesn't bother me one bit carry on this way
Because you're not the boss of me

There's a woman out there lurking in the crowd trying to hold someone's hand
You give her the chat, you know she'll pounce and make a mouse out of a man
Don't you ever let that woman steal your dreams
Just tell her you're not the boss of me

There's a woman out there lurking in the crowd, holding on to my hand
I gave her the chat, you know she pounced and made a mouse out of this man
I swore I'd never let that woman steal my dreams
And now she's the boss of me
