    Lyrics

    Roller skate skinny and the terrible twos
    How can you have everything and nothing to lose
    You and nobody see eye to eye
    You're gonna wake up with a ghost instead of a guy

    Bulletin board on the wall of a church
    Soaking up the city from a top-step perch
    You're gonna break down on a midnight date
    Gonna curse this town, you're gonna run late

    You're pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny
    Pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny

    Do you want to meet up at the Pickwood Bowl
    We could knock nine down and leave one in the hole
    Wouldn't be here if the Athenia hadn't sunk
    Or if Dear ol Dad hadn't got so drunk

    Every other day is a kick in the shins
    Every other day it's like the day just wins
    But you make it all right, you make it OK
    You make me sorta glad that I waited till today

    You're pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny
    Pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny

    (guitar break)

    Roller-skate skinny and the terrible twos
    Two years in and it's time to choose
    Love feels good when it sits right down, puts its feet up on the table it
    Sends a bowl around

    Ain't nobody gonna see eye to eye
    With a girl who's only gonna stand collarbone high
    Rain's gonna come in fair-sized drips
    And we're gonna go to heaven wearing paper-hat ships

    You're pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny
    Pretty as a penny, roller-skate skinny

    I believe in love, but it don't believe in....
    I believe in love, but it don't believe in me
    I believe in love, but it don't believe in me

    (repeat)
