Baby, if the cake ain't missing
How did icing get all over you you you (you you you-ou)
You're the biggest chocolate-covered lie I've ever seen
Oh was it good good good (oh was it goo-ood)

Why did you do it, babe
Lie through your sweet-tooth honey

Now how long did you think this love could last
If you keep kickin' it around this way (oo-ooo)
You may think I'm jokin'
But I'm turning blue from chocking on your lie-lie-lies

I'm at my point of no return
Tell me what does it take for you to learn
Every man's got his point
And I got my point
And my point of no return
Oh baby baby baby
I can't look back
(oh baby)

Now you always know just what to feed me
Just enough to keep me wanting more more more (you you you-ou)
I spend all my time a-plantin'
Seeds of love for you walk on, that's why they won't grow (oh was it good)

Why do you do it, babe
Lie through your sweet-tooth

Longer than my mind says leave
And my heart says stay
And my pride is always standing in my way-hey-hey

Pride, I hope you're ready
Just in case she doesn't change
We'll need you right away

I'm at my point of no return
Tell me what does it take for you to learn
Every man's got his point
And I'm at my point
At my point of no return
(Oh baby)
I can't look back now
(Oh baby)
Oh no
