Intro:  
Verse 
Honey don't leave 
Make me feel like I'm 17 
Listening to the lizard king break on through 
Come on say you'll be 
Mapplethorpe to my Patti 
Just kids living on a shoestring dream 
She got David Bowie eyes 
One is green and one is blue 
I'm sure one of his was brown 
But what can I do? 
Verse 
Honey don't leave 
Make me feel like I'm 23 
Surfer Rosa on a sea of speed 
Come on say you'll be 
Kurt to my Courtney 
Overboard and self assured 
Come on say you'll be 
Mapplethorpe to my Patti 
Just kids living on a shoestring dream
