I don't think you want me to see you ever again
And today I saw you dressed as a flower bed
Last week you had a wig on your head
You directed traffic in the street
And your shoes were too big for your feet
You we're wearing disguises
Occasionally, a girl surprises me when she turns out to be you
Wearing disguises
