The Madder You Are (The Cuter You Get)

Don't try and look so tough
I know what you're trying to do
You think you have to put on a show
For me to pay attention to you
Well baby you've got the floor
And I'm all eyes and ears
You don't have to act angry
For me to say what you want to hear

Oh Scarlet I give a damn now you can act your age
Bravo I love you now you can come offstage
Though I hate to see you simmer down
Even a little bit cause a girl good looking as you
The madder you are the cuter you get
The madder you are the cuter you get

Now your blues eyes are flashing
And your cheeks are getting red
And I can tell that I'm not helping things
With the clumsy words I said
I think I understand where you're coming from
I know what you want me to do
You're pretending to still be mad at me
I'm falling more in love with you

Chorus

Cool off the drama, how did this begin
What got you so excited so I can do it again

Sometimes I think that lovers
Really enjoy the little tests of will
You love to give me your advice
And I love to give you a thrill

And I guess it's nice to get crossways
Cause sometimes we both can win
The best part of a good clean fight
Is patching things back up again

Chorus
