Brainwascht

Original Artist: Ben Folds

If you want to write a letter, write a letter
If you'd rather make a phone call, pick the phone up
Call me

But if you had to say it all with a pop song
Couldn't you at least have written me a good one?

She's brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you too

She's brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you too

Was it just a simple rewind and erase?
Was your mind squeaky clean in the first place?

If you got to write an essay do your research
(If you got to) stick your nose in a boy and girl fight
hear both sides first

There something wrong being copied on a memo
In the form of a bad country demo

She's brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you too

She's brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you too

Is there a funnel from her mind to your mouth now?
Cause you don't edit anything it just comes out

(Yeah)

I gotta say
It's pretty gay
Trading jabs with pop songs

So maybe next time we should just have a dance-off?
A dance-off

You know there's something in the bible about forgiveness and love
And more importantly about throwing stones and and what your house is made of
You might reflect upon your own arrangement
Ninety-four getting blown in your basement (While your wife slept)

She's brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you too

She's brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you
Brainwashed you too

She's brainwashed you (Integrity)
She's brainwashed you (Family)
She's brainwashed you (Online rhyming dictionary)

(Uh!)
