I've got alligator skin
From the time I bit your lip
I dug my nails deeper in
A carpet rash on my back to mark my sin

And that time I felt ready to fly
But that time you were far too high
You had my feet nailed to the sky
And your front leg was all tongue tied

You've got alligator skin
From the time you locked me in
Let the fun and games begin
Pretty please skin your knees, we'll see who wins

And this time I feel ready to fly
But this time you are far too high
You have my feet nailed to the sky
And your front leg is all tongue-tied

Now I've got alligator skin
From when we made the floor break in
We like to play like reptile kids
And get rug-burned to shed our skin

But looking back you attacked me with your sins
And I fell back as you laughed and lured me in
And honestly the memory well it makes me grin
Cause now I'm branded with this alligator skin
