The Babysitter's Here lyrics

Tonight was just great, she taught us the sign for peace
Now she's made us some popcorn we've turned out the lights
And we're watching movies
I don't understand and she tries to explain
How a spaceship is riding through somebody'y brain
And there's blood and guts, Oh

She's the best one that we've ever had
She sits on her hair and she's tall as my dad
And she tie-dyed my shirt, and she pierced her own ear
And it's peace man, cool yah, the babysitter's here

Her boyfriend is Tom but we call him "the king of romance"
He wears an American flag on the butt of his ripped up pants and
Will they get married with kids of their own
He says not if she's going to college we won't and he
Kisses her oh

She's the best one that we've ever had
She sits on her hair and she's tall as my dad
And she got mad at dinner when Tom drank a beer
But peace man, cool hey, the babysitter's here

And we all went to see her go dance at the high school
We made her a big card
And she told us that she'd be the unicorn wearing the pink leotard and
There she was leaping up just like she said
With a sparkling horn coming out of her head
And she's ... oh ....

But it's Saturday night, I can't sleep and I'm watching the news
She says do me a favor don't go with a guy who would make you choose and
I don't understand and she tries to explain
And all that mascara runs down in her pain cause she's leaving me

You're the best one that we've ever had
You sit on your hair and you're tall as my dad
And I'll make you a picture for college next year
So hush now, peace man, the babysitter's here
The best babysitter's here
