Nothing Like the Wrong Thing Music & Lyrics copyright 2011 by Mike Luno

verse 1
She paid good money to straighten her teeth
Though I couldn't tell they were wrong
And she got a grip upon my short hairs -
maintaining her smile all along
It took me some time to clue in at last
She's new clothes hanging on an old mean streak
It taught me again what I should have known -
Don't turn your back on precious teeth

chorus
'Cause there's nothing like the wrong thing
Yeah, it's so hard not to think about
There's nothing like the wrong thing
So tell me what's your poison now
We'll find you some more somehow

verse 2
She'd been knocked down in round after round
by her so-called lovers and friends
It left her half-broken and hard to dissuade
that there's no such thing as a gentleman
I thought she was wrong, but I soon found out
She held the proof after all
The last few were sport for her idle hours
and that's them hanging on her wall

chorus 2
Cause there's nothing like the wrong thing
Yeah, it'll have you crawling door-to-door
There's nothing like the wrong thing
I know what you came here for
I know what you came here for

bridge
Even though sometimes you might miss your touch and jolt
One weak moment might draw back your brittle bolt
I'm clean as I'm ever going to get, so help me
so help me

verse 3
'It's not the first, but it's far from the worst', she said,
stroking the hair of the dog
I had to agree – the thrill is so fleet
It might be worth a broken blue law
My chivalry died the moment I spied
She's got a very unhealthy appetite
There's no future in this but a hungry abyss
but no-one leaves unsatisfied

verse 3
Cause there's nothing like the wrong thing
yeah, it'll tie you down or set you free
There's nothing like the wrong thing
There's not enough, there's not enough,
just not enough of you for me
