If it weren't for your maturity
None of this would have happened
If it 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 it weren't for me
You would never have amounted to very much

Ooh this could be messy
But you don't seem to mind
Ooh 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

You're essentially an employee
And I like you having to depend on me
You're kind of my protege
And one day you'll say you learned all you know from me
I know you depend on me
Like a young thing would to guardian
I know you sexualize me
Like a young thing would and I think I like it

Ooh this could get messy
But you don't seem to mind
Ooh 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

What part of our history's reinvented and under rug swept?
What part of you memory is selective and tends to forget?
What's 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 possee
I wish I could tell the world
Cuz you're such a pretty thing when you're done up properly
I might want to marry you one day
If you'd watch that weight and keep your firm body

Ooh this could get messy
But you don't seem to mind
Ooh don't go telling everybody
And overlook this supposed crime
