All I can hope for is that the gentleman be gentle
The last thing I need is another nosebleed
Scabs on my kneecaps
I pick and fidget while they walk past
I’ve long since ceased to feel
That I’m awake and this is real.

Rent boy, rent boy
I’ll never see my family again

What does your wife think
When you crawl back to bed in my stink?
She lies to herself
Says it’s good for your health

(sometimes the boys bring girls)
He cries while I hold her
And lightly bite her on the shoulder
He’s likely to come
Well before I am done

So I slink down the alley with my new heels on
Maybe get lucky, find a sensitive John
He’ll tell me that I’m pretty like the boys that he never
Had the courage to tell in highschool.

Rent boy, rent boy
(this one stopped breathing)
Rent Boy, Rent Boy
What’s that awful scent, boy?
Bowels won’t hold
This John gone cold
I’ll dig a hole
My story’s told
