Lyrics

Emotional Condom

Written By: Ann Denny (aka Anna Danova)

I wanna make love, to somebody tonight

I wanna make looove, to somebody (doo doo doo)

I wanna make love to somebody tonight

But I don’t want to feel shitty about it, in the morning,

so consider this an early warning.. I’m bringing my:

Emotional Condom with me

Emotional Condom baby

Emotional condom with me

Cuz it just feels so right, to not feel anything at all until I, know he's Mister riiiight!

So let’s make love, without ruining, the rest, of my... week

I’ve got a presentation to make at work on Tuesday!

And I just want some friction, I don’t want to write bad romantic fiction (crying)

And you've got some nerve, coming onto me when you're moving back to Calgary

Good thing I thought to bring my:

Emotional Condom with me

Emotional Condom baby

Emotional condom with me

Cuz its just more polite, to not get needy and attached until I know that its for more
than just one night!

Oh I thank got for this, piece of plastic wrapped around, my heart.

I know I'm protected before we even start, kissing

Ya he won't know what he's missing, almost as good as the real thing

I’ve got an emotional condom in my back pocket, and another one in my purse, in case the first one gets broken cuz you won't break my heart today just cuz I drank a bit too much Chardonnay..

I brought an eeemmoootiiioonnnaaalll condom, with me, baby
