Gag Order

You get bad grammar
From all those card-playing cigar-smokers
Who got their hands full of diamonds, but no hearts
And you're left holding a pack of jokers
Who all want you to play nurse
But you've got to Win, Place, or Show to get a piece of the purse
You say that I can't offer enough
Well this is what I got for you when you get tough:
 
Gag Order: Take you for a long walk off a short pier
South of the border with the cast-iron overcoat and the barbed-wire garter
 
Underhanded deals
They'll buy you over-the-counter to get under-the-table
To your fishnets and stiletto heels
But who picks you up, dear, when you're not able
You better try to give me the slip
'Cause I ain't gonna stand for that abusive lip
When you start speaking the language of shove
I'm gonna take our love and give it
 
Gag Order: Take you for a long walk off a short pier
South of the border with the cast-iron overcoat and the barbed-wire garter
 
Lately your Hellos have been a rough how do you do
But it's your party, and you'll kill who you want to
Now your Goodbyes are getting a bit black and blue
We always stuck like oil and slipped like glue
I looked into your eyes and started seeing stars
You said "Our love is physical" ....there's proof in the scars
We can start it over while the night is still young
Or call a stop to it with a slip of the tongue, and give it
 
Gag Order: Take you for a long walk off a short pier
South of the border with the cast-iron overcoat and the barbed-wire garter
 
Punctuation
Talk about getting your period
It's time to put a stop to it, girl
Time to put the chop to your weary head
Still you want to come on and flirt
But I can zip you up just like another skirt
You say you want to write my sentence
You talk about the future, but you're in the wrong tense...you're in
 
Gag Order: Take you for a long walk off a short pier
South of the border with the cast-iron overcoat and the barbed-wire garter
