(We Had) A Thing

[Verse 1]
It was the summer of 93, I was down
Did too much thinking, too much drinking
Dishwater brown, tall and fine
You had a simple thing about you
Couldn’t live without you
We took the D train for uptown, and never looked down
But that was then, this is now, you drove me insane
But I didn’t complain

[Chorus]
We had our thing now we’re done
But sometime fuck just for fun
And it’s real cool’

And it feels good
Or at least it should

[Verse 2]
Get out on your own girl, that’s what they say
I’ve been through feminist statistics, a chick who said go holistic
They don’t know how sweet you sound when you say
“Hey girl, what time you comin round?”
I’d work like a slave for it, turn all depraved for it
Swim shore to shore for it, go out like a whore for it
When I’m down I’m down
What time you want me ‘round

[Chorus]
We had our thing now we’re done
But sometime fuck just for fun
And it’s real cool’
And it feels good
Or at least it should

[Verse 3]
Check it it was Friday
Rent was due on Monday
He came home with no pay
I said I’ll go my way.
But I’d fell deeply
completely
since I don’t know when
This happens over and over again

[Chorus]
We had a thing now we’re done
But sometime fuck just for fun
And it’s real cool’
And it feels good
Or at least it should
