Alanis Morissette – Hands Clean

If it weren’t for your maturity none of this would have happened

If you weren’t so wise beyond your years I would’ve been able to control myself

If it weren’t for my attention you wouldn’t have been successful and if

If it weren’t for me you would never have amounted to very much

Oh, this could be messy

But you don’t seem to mind and

Oh, don’t go telling everybod

And overlook this supposed crime

We’ll fast forward to a few years later

And no one knows except the both of us

And I have honored your request for silence

And you’ve washed your hands clean of this

You’re essentially an employee and I like you having to depend on me

You’re a kind of protege and one day you’ll say you learned all you know from me and

I love you depend on me like a young thing would to a guardian

I know you sexualize me like a young thing would and I think I like it

Oh, this could get messy

But you don’t seem to mind and

Oh, don’t go telling everybody

And overlook this supposed crime

We’ll fast forward to a few years later

And no one knows except the both of us

I’ve more than honored your request for silence

And you’ve washed your hands clean of this

What part of our history’s reinvented and under rug swept?

What part of your memory is selective and tends to forget?

What with this distance it seems so obvious?

Just make sure you don’t tell on me especially to members of your family

We best keep this to ourselves and not tell any members of our inner posse

I wish I could tell the world ’cause you’re such a pretty thing when you’re done up properly

I might want to marry you one day if you watch that weight and keep your firm body

Oh, this could be messy

And oh I don’t seem to mind and

Oh, don’t go telling everybody

And overlook this supposed crime

We’ll fast forward to a few years later

And no one knows except the both of us

And I have honored your request for silence

And you’ve washed your hands clean of this

Oh, this could get messy

Oh, I don’t seem to mind and

Oh, don’t go telling everybod

And overlook this supposed crime

We’ll fast forward to a few years later

And no one knows except the both of us

And I have honored your request for silence

And you’ve washed your hands clean of this
