Penny-posing Loafer

You penny-posing loafer
You’re worn, through and through
Like us, puh-lease say we’re over 
Before I fly-salt your food

You’re worn, through and through
Like the new burn-holes in your pants?
Before I fly-salt your food,
Why not leave as I passively ask?

Like the new burn-holes in your pants,
The gap between us is HUGE
Why not leave as I passively ask?
Walk out in your tack-filled shoes

The gap between us is HUGE
Like us? Puh-lease, say we’re over 
Walk out in your tack-filled shoes
You penny-posing loafer
