The Grownups debut single, released on 1987.

lyrics

Sometimes you say things
you don’t mean
and it feels like a snakebite
Sometimes you say things
you don’t mean
and it feels like a snakebite

Well, one more time
and I’m out the door baby
One more time
and I’m out that door
One more time
and I can’t be held responsible
One more time
and baby that’s all

That does it
one more time

Say that again
and that’s it, it’s over
Say that again
and we are through
Say that again
and I’ll mail you all your things back
Say that again
say goodbye to me and you

That does it
that does it
that does it
there’ll be hell to pay

Sometimes you say things
you don’t mean
and it feels like a snakebite
Sometimes you say things
you don’t mean
and it feels like a snakebite

I lost a friend today
I lost a friend today
I’m going back to Virginia
I’m going back to stay
I’m going back today
I’m going back to stay
Hey, hey hey
