lyrics

you used to be somebody
i didn't know
but your family loved you
then you let yourself go
now you're wearing your sunglasses
ten in the morning
you got me involved
in your life without warning
i wasn't watching the news
i wasn't watching the news

and you turned to me then
and you asked me about
the government shutdown,
was it over by now?
i mustered an answer,
turned back to my food
to give the impression
i wasn't in the mood
i wasn't watching the news
i wasn't watching the news

oh, fox
with whom are you pairin'?
you used to be sharon
now nobody's carin' for you
to strangers you're showing
your shoulders all flecked
since last time i checked, oh,
no one's got respect for you

even though we just met
i know you're a hot mess
'cause i saw you tip a lollipop
to your waitress
you think you're being cute
but candy is not cash
this woman is making a living
and busting her ass
that's more than i can say for you
that's more than i can say for you

then you asked for my number,
said "you're a cool chick,"
and i gave you a fake one
and later found out that you're sick
your family is calling to you
your family is calling to you

oh, fox,
your soul couldn't bear
you're everywhere
everywhere and nowhere, too
i don't even know you
but i know that you're a wreck
i don't know if you know this but
no one's got respect for you
no one's got respect for you
