There's many things that
I used to think that
There were people inside of radios
And every snake was just a garden hose
And people on t.v.
Could look right back at me

Now I was sad that a radio was just wires in a box
And I was scared that a snake could slither up my socks
But as for the t.v., I was kinda relieved
Cause I knew they couldn't see me in my jammies

Those childhood things are hard to replace
But I found them again in your smiling face
I was just shocked when your wires got crossed
And it was strange when you showed your fangs

Before my head was a headache
Before deception was true
Before my heart was a heartache
I didn't know you

I never could believe
That you could leave me
Especially for a guy on tv
I only wish that he could see me here
Throwing popcorn at his pretty face
And giving him the finger
