Lyrics

Tango-only in dreams-pops.jpg

it takes two
two to tango
it takes two
to lay down that foxtrot
don't take three
don't take four
don't take five or six or more
to set the world on fire
it takes two
to pack yourself a sandwich for lunch
to pack yourself some baggies for walking
don't take three
don't take four
don't take even a single one more
