Appropriation (By Any Other Name) - The Long Blondes

80% of lovers
Never forget their first
This significant other
Whos departure makes things worse

Well this is you down to a 'T'
I can see you won't forget her
Because she meant untimely death a year ago

Technically, this is, appropriation by any other name
You can't have me, make me act the same
The way you treat me is inappropriate
You don't stop to think about that

Appropriation by any other name
You can't have me, make me act the same
The way you treat me is inappropriate
You don't stop to think about that

A mutal aquaintance
Claims you're wise beyind your years
With a love of conversation
Most unrivaled by your peers

Still the lingering malaise of British Rail
And whether foxes should be killed or not is her concern not mine

Technically, this is, appropriation by any other name
You can't have me, make me act the same
The way you treat me is inappropriate
You don't stop to think about that

Appropriation by any other name
You can't have me, make me act the same
The way you treat me is inappropriate
You don't stop to think about that

What will you do if I don't come back to you tonight?
I'm not always at your beck and call
I know how your mind works now
You just want a nearly new replacement

When I met you, I never wore dresses like that
But I've been sitting here for thirty minutes and you haven't said a word
But I don't have the guts to get on the bus
So I end up getting a lift back to yours and the cycle starts all over again
The cycle starts over again

Stop this man
Someone stop this stop
Stop this man
Someone stop this man, stop this man
