Nip It In The Bud

From the time the lights come on,
And from dusk 'til dawn...
You're giving me the lip!

I don't need the clock to ding-a-dong,
Since my peace is gone.
And in my ear you babble lip.

Why can't you nip it in the bud, baybay.
Why can't you handle it?

Nip it in the bud.

Why can't you take a walk as I lay?
Do whatever it takes!

But don't bother me with it!

I don't need the clock to ding-a-dong,
Since my peace is gone.
And in my ear you babble lip.
Why can't you take a walk as I lay?
Do whatever it takes!
And don't bother me with it!

Why can't you nip it in the bud, baybay.
Why can't you handle it?

Nip it in the bud.

Why can't you take a walk as I lay?
Do whatever it takes!

But don't bother me with it!

From the time the lights come on,
And from dusk 'til dawn...
You're giving me the lip!

I don't need the clock to ding-a-dong,
Since my peace is gone.
And in my ear you babble lip.

Why can't you nip this in the bud, baybay.
Why can't you handle it?

Nip it in the bud.

Why can't you take a walk as I lay?
Do whatever it takes!

But don't bother me with it!

Why can't you nip this in the bud, baybay.
Why can't you handle it?
And just nip this in the bud, baybay.
Why can't you take a walk as I lay?
Do whatever it takes!
And don't bother me with it!

Why can't you nip this in the bud, baybay.
Why can't you handle it?
And just nip this in the bud, baybay.
Why can't you take a walk as I lay?
Do whatever it takes!
And don't bother me with it!

Why can't you nip this in the bud, baybay.
Why can't you handle it?
And just nip this in the bud, baybay.
Why can't you take a walk as I lay?
Do whatever it takes!
And don't bother me with it!

Why can't you nip this in the bud, baybay.
And take my 'daze' away!
