I’ve never been known for my self-control
See I like to say yes more than I like to say no
I know I shouldn’t escalate
But it’s so exciting raising the stakes

There’s a word for girls like me
Disrespectful of domestic tranquility
I don’t try to justify it’s wrong yes I get this

Destruction in my wake
See something I want
I just reach out and take it
Courting disaster
Think that I’m a fast girl
Well I get even faster

Here I am messing with the social order
Your marriage and me are like oil and water
Or maybe more like powder and spark
It won’t take long before I make my mark

I’m more trouble than you think I am
See I got no morals and I got no man
You don’t know just what I’ll do
I’m a loose cannon and I’m pointing at you

But you’ve got to believe me it was never my plan
To go and fall in love with a married man
It’s got to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever done
But I’m caught up completely now it’s too late to run

It’s not my choice to make
Set my heart on something
I’m just setting up to break it
I just want to master
A sticky situation
But it’s simply a disaster
