Mostly just worked the song out for myself as an exercise, but I saw there was
barely any Metric tabs from the Grow up and Blow Away album posted here so
figured I would share.

I'm not sure if it's 100% right but it's close.

Lyrics:

Wipe it up you're capable of putting back a few when you have to memorize The history of 
body like a virgin
Ladies night
80's night
The kids get high and eat TV
So do we
For Halloween
I want to be Lenny Bruce

I want them to
hate me
I want them to
hate me
I want them to
hate me
I want them to
hate me
I want them to
hate me
So you can love me on the sly

My old flame broke the 12 bar blues
just to prove he could
He pays the airline DJs now
He is everywhere

I want him to
hate me
I want him to
hate me
I want him to
hate me
I want him to
hate me
I want him to
hate me
So you can love me on the sly.
I want him to
hate me
I want him to
hate me
I want him to
hate me

I don't feel so far away from you lately
love me on the sly

Fill me in on horrible
how much is there
where else can I live?
The dirty sugar factory
on the water
should smell sweet

I want them to
hate me
I want them to
hate me
I don't feel so far away from you lately
love me on the sly

I want them to
hate me
I want them to
hate me
I don't feel so far away from you lately
love me on the sly

I want them to
hate me
I want them to
hate me
I don't feel so far away from you lately
love me on the sly

Wipe it up you're capable
Of putting back
A few when you have to
Memorize the history
Of your body like a virgin
Ladies night, Eighties night
The kids get high and eat TV
So do we, for Halloween
I want to be Lenny Bruce

I want them to hate
I want them to hate
I want them to hate
I want them to hate me
So you can love me on the sly

My old flame broke the twelve bar blues
Just to prove he could
He pays the airline DJ's now
He is everywhere

I want them to hate
I want them to hate
I want them to hate
I don't feel so far away from you lately
Love me on the sly

Fill me in on horrible
How much is there
Where else can I live
The dirty sugar factory
On the water, on the water
Should smell sweet

I want them to hate me
I want them to hate me
I don't feel so far away from you lately
Love me on the sly

I want them to hate me
I want them to hate me
I don't feel so far away from you lately
Love me on the sly

I want them to hate me
I want them to hate me
I don't feel so far away from you lately
Love me on the sly
