"Turf Accountant Daddy" lyrics - THE PRETENDERS

THE PRETENDERS
"Turf Accountant Daddy"

After you finish off
Your fear of death returns
And then you drop the ball
Because love, it burns

See you duck and dive
So you don't get hit
That's how you stay alive
But just a little bit

Well she don't know
Back in Reno Nevada
He keeps his profile low
Turf Accountant Daddy

Hey baby, you wanna dance?
Come here

The things you criticised
That's what you've become
AWOL, living on a beach
Just a bum

And those little white lies
Me and her as well
Them roving eyes
They kiss and tell

Well she don't know
Back in Reno Nevada
He keeps his profile low
Turf Accountant Daddy

Now you're undercover
That must be tough
Hiding this week's lover
Nothing's never enough

Well she don't know
Back in Reno Nevada
He keeps his profile low
Turf Accountant Daddy

And she'll never know
In Cincinnati
He's never gonna show
The Turf Accountant Daddy
