Apologize’

Lyrics
Baby
Tuckoo

Baby
Tuckoo

Stephen will apologize or I’ll pull out his eyes
Pull out his eyes
Apologize

Stephen will apologize or I’ll pull out his eyes
Pull out his eyes
Apologize

Stephen will apologize
Stephen will apologize
Stephen will apologize
Stephen will apologize…

Stephen will apologize or I’ll pull out his eyes
Pull out his eyes
Apologize

Stephen will apologize or I’ll pull out his eyes
Pull out his eyes
Apologize

He gave his soul to sell
We crushed him as he fell
We pushed him into hell

He gave his soul to sell
We crushed him as he fell
We pushed him into hell

He gave his soul to sell
We crushed him as he fell
We pushed him into hell

He gave his soul to sell
We crushed him as he fell
We pushed him into hell

Parnell, Parnell, Parnell…Par-nell.
